Three different solid byproducts (skin, frame, and refiner discharge) from Pacific whiting surimi manufacturing are a good resource for collagen extraction according to their total protein concentrations and other biochemical properties. Denaturation temperature of acid-soluble collagens was 23.3°C for refiner discharge, 21.7°C for skin, and 20.6°C for frame. Based on the functional properties, acid-soluble collagen from refiner discharge was the best and showed potential as an ingredient in processed food manufacturing.
