Interpretive Summary: Utilizing proteolytic enzymes, fish protein hydrolysates can be created with peptide having new and/or improved properties. However, there is lack of information on hydrolysates made from fish processing byproducts and their functional, nutritional, and antioxidant properties. This study characterized hydrolysates from whole herring, herring fillet, herring head, and herring gonad. Desirable properties of fish byproduct hydrolysates included light color, antioxidant properties, solubility, fat absorption and emulsification stability. The results will also be helpful in finding an alternative to uses for byproducts from other fish species.
