Review: Loss of Quality during the Manufacture of Canned Fish Products

AbstractFrom the moment the fish is caught till it arrives at the consumer as a canned product, raw matter is submitted to a variety of industrial steps. Thus, a storage process (namely, chilling or freezing) is needed for holding the raw material to be canned; a cooking step is normally employed for reducing moisture and inactivating endogenous enzyme activity; a rigorous thermal treatment (sterilization) is undertaken to inactivate micro-organisms; and a proper canned storage is necessary to guarantee good palatability of the product. As a result, labile and essential nutrients (proteins, vitamins, lipids, minerals) present in the raw fish are exposed to different processing conditions that can reduce the nutritional and sensory values of the final product. In the present work, detrimental changes produced in each of the steps involved in the manufacture of canned products are mentioned. This review is focused on nutritional and sensory losses in species commonly employed for canning preparation, and special attention is given to research concerning the effect of varying conditions of previous processing (chilling, freezing and frozen storage and cooking) on the quality of the final canned product. New and current technological strategies are recommended to increase the shelf life of previously stored material and to retain sensory and nutritional quality in the final canned product.
