During the frozen storage, the myofibrillar proteins lose the solubility and hydration capacity. The DPA moisture retainers, texturizers and tenderizers effectively solve this problem.
Whiteners / preservatives
During handling and storage, cephalopods can modify its appearance. They lose their natural tone and in some cases they can get reddish. The DPA whiteners avoid oxidation and improve color without altering its characteristic flavor.
Reduction of cooking lost
During the cooking the high temperatures can cause that the octopus lose its skin and its characteristic color. Laboratorio DPA has developed products that avoid the peeling and improve the pink skin tone, reducing losses arising from this problem.
During storage, the evaporation of water from the surface of the cephalopod damages the product by dehydration and promotes the fats oxidation. The DPA glazing agents form a protective layer on the surface which prevents desiccation and improve the final appearance.
