Abstract

IN the course of investigations on salmon roe globulin, the interesting observation was made that the phospholipids in the roe are so strongly held by the proteins that non-polar or semi-polar solvents with a low boiling point (pentane, light petroleum, ethyl ether) do not extract any phospholipid at all from salmon roe, which was previously dried at a temperature below 40° C., although the oil can be completely extracted by such solvents.
