Production of bioactive peptides from fish proteins and their in vivo effect / Production of bioactive peptides from fish proteins and their properties in animals
The aim of the project was to produce fish peptides on an experimental factory scale and to study their bioactivity in experimental rats. Confirmation of in vivo efficacy is essential for successful marketing of the products. The project developed a production method that produced peptides with much higher bioactivity than we have seen before in vitro. Blood pressure lowering properties were not measured in vivo and the results were not conclusive regarding efficacy. Important steps were taken in the project to start production and marketing of bioactive products from by-products of fish processing.
The aim of the project was to produce fish peptides in a pilot plant and measure their bioactivity in vivo. Peptides with good bioactivity in vitro were processes but difficulties were observed when measuring their activity in vivo. Important steps were taken in the project towards production and marketing of bioactive peptides from fish cut offs.
