A process whereby components of a food material are concurrently extracted while being made soluble by microbial and chemical action complicates leaching. A good example of this type of process is the batch hydrolysis of minced fish flesh processing waste by enzyme action. The water-insoluble components are changed into soluble (digested) materials. The resultant water-based protein solution can be dried to produce a high-quality protein product for both animal and human consumption. This technique is a good means for using the tremendous amounts of unused industrial fish, by-catch, underutilized edible species, and waste from processing whole fish (4).
