Improved processing of dried fish proteins / Improved processing of dry fish proteins

The aim of the project was to improve the production process of the start-up company Iceprotein. Iceprotein has worked on the utilization of unused proteins from fish with good results. However, it is necessary to improve the quality of dried products. The purpose of this project was to improve it and thereby ensure the continued development of this important growth point in Skagafjörður.

The aim of the project was to improve the processing of dry fish proteins at the company Iceprotein. Iceprotein is a development company that utilizes cut ‐ offs from fish processing for production of value added protein products. With this project, the aim was to improve their production and thereby strengthening this frontline company in use of fish by‐ products.

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.
