The gross chemical composition of some traditionally processed Nile fishes from Sudan


Author(s): Reem AM Ahmed, Zuheir N Mahmoud and Nazik MA Hammad

Abstract: The determination of gross chemical composition of processed fish showed thatmandeshi made from Synodentis spp., had the highest calorific value (375.8) compared with other processed fish species. The digestibility of wet salted fish (fessikh) Alestes spp. ranged between 0.429:1.0 in eight days old, to 0.086% in mature product, respectively). The highest concentration of protein (55.125%) was found in Synodentis spp., processed as mendeshi and the lowest percentage (16.62%) in mature fessikh made from Hydrocynus spp. The highest fat proportion (15.77%) was found in mendeshi of Synodentis, and the lowest percentage (2.40%) was recorded in Alestes spp. (mature fessikh). Labeo spp. (mature fessikh) showed highest ash content (27.95%) while the lowest ash percentage (6.39%) was found in Kajake (Clarias spp.). The highest moisture percentage (55.77%) was detected in Hydrocynus spp. (mature fessikh), while the lowest percentage (15.18%) appeared in mendeshi of Synodentis spp.
