Table 2 Moisture and protein content of process drips obtained from yellowfin tuna roe during cook-dried process

From: Chemical composition of protein concentrate prepared from Yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares roe by cook-dried process

Sample Moisture (%) Protein (%) Volume (mL/100 g roe) Proteina (mg/mL) Total protein (mg)
BPD 92.0 ± 0.1a 5.8 ± 0.0a 29.6 16.9b 500.2
SPD 90.5 ± 0.7b 6.4 ± 0.5a 18.1 20.2a 356.6
  1. Data are means ± standard deviation of triplicate determinations
  2. Values with different letters within the same column are significantly different at P < 0.05 by Duncan’s multiple range test
  3. BPD boiling process drip, SPD steaming process drip, respectively
  4. aBased on Lowry’s method (1951)
