Effect of porcine plasma proteins (PPP) on thermal gelation of actomyosin in the presence and absence of fish proteinase was studied using a dynamic rheological test. Substantial decreases in development rate and magnitude of gel modulus were observed by the addition of proteinase to actomyosin gels. PPP was effective in protecting a myosin-heavy chain from proteolytic degradation, however, PPP itself interfered with the formation of actomyosin gel. Lower gel modulus was observed with actomyosin gels developed with higher concentrations of PPP added. Overall, PPP reversed the loss of gel modulus by the proteinase, however, the recovered gel modulus was only as high as those containing PPP only. These results implicated that, although PPP may revert autolytic activity in surimi, it interfaces with actomyosin gelation.
