The effects of setting (suwari) at around 40 °C on the breaking strength and breaking strain rate of thermal gels treated at 85 °C for 20 min during the following processing step were examined in association with the polymerization and degradation of myosin heavy chains (MHCs) for surimi prepared from white croaker, walleye pollack and deepsea bonefish. In the case of white croaker and walleye pollack, maximum values of breaking strength and breaking strain rate were obtained after suwari at 30-40 °C for both 30 and 60 min, at which temperature MHCs were polymerized. In comparison, these textual properties of the thermal gels decreased in surimi prepared from deepsea bonefish after suwari at around 38 °C for 30 min and at around 32 °C for 60 min, with concomitant degradation products of MHC. The textual properties of deepsea bonefish after suwari at temperatures >45 °C tended to be almost the same as those after suwari at temperatures of <30 °C, where neither polymerization nor degradation of MHC was observed. © 2013 The Japanese Society of Fisheries Science.

Thermally-induced gels were made from white croaker (Pennahia argentata) meat in the presence of its organ extracts by pre-heating at 40 and 65°C for 20 min and subsequent heating at 85°C for 20 min. The breaking strength of the gels decreased with increasing concentrations of the intestinal extracts accompanying decomposition of myosin heavy chains. However, no significant changes in the gel strength occurred when the kidney extract was added. The proteolytic activity in the intestinal extracts examined in the meat homogenate had a maximum at 60°C and pH 8.90. These results suggest that the intestinal rather than kidney proteolytic activities are responsible for gel softening known as a modori phenomenon. Thus, the removal of intestinal tracts is essential to maintain a high quality of surimi-based products. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Thermal gels were made from white croaker (Pennahia argentata) surimi at various polymerization levels of myosin heavy chains induced by suwari treatment at 38 C for various time periods and subsequently heated at 85 C for 20 min. Myosin heavy chain polymerization levels were also achieved in the presence of microbial transglutaminase (MTG) added at various concentrations in the surimi. The breaking strength and breaking strain rate were markedly increased during suwari treatment up to 60 min in accordance with the increased levels of myosin heavy chain polymerization. MTG enhanced myosin heavy chain polymerization during suwari treatment for 15 and 30 min, resulting in the increase of breaking strength. The solubilization in 8 M urea and pepsin digestibility of these gels as well as angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity of their pepsin digests were decreased with the increased levels of myosin heavy chain polymerization. These results suggest that myosin heavy chain polymerization affects not only rheological properties of thermal gels but also their functional properties for human health.
