Chemical Composition, Amino Acid and Collagen Content of Snakehead (Channa striata) Fish Skin and Bone

Rosmawati, Effendi Abustam, Abu Bakar Tawali , Muhammad Irfan Said

Abstract: Utilization of snakehead fish as a health food has an impact on increasing by-product of skin and bone. This study aims to evaluate the chemical composition, amino acids and collagen content of the skin and bone of snakehead fish, as a consideration in its use further. This study used the skin and bone from snakehead fish in weight 900 to 1,000 g. Characteristics of skin and bone of snakehead consist of chemical composition and amino acid content. The percentage of water and protein is higher in the skin, and conversely, the fat and ash content is higher in bone. The highest percentage of amino acids in the skin and bone were glycine and proline, respectively, and the presence of hydroxyproline shown that the skin of snakehead fish was the source of collagen.
