Sea cucumber, functional food to be discovered!
Sea cucumber, I believe most Chinese people will not be unfamiliar. From ancient times to the present, sea cucumber is a delicacy on the table, and it is also a valuable medicinal material in the theory of Chinese medicine. With the promotion of health trends and the development of functional foods, the potential application value of sea cucumber in health foods and drugs has been continuously explored, but extensive research is needed in the specific application process.
Huang Yushen, Plum Blossom Ginseng, Giant Plum Blossom Ginseng and White Base Anal Ginseng are several kinds of sea cucumbers commonly eaten in Asian countries, mainly used as food and traditional medicine. Scientific studies in recent years have confirmed the health benefits of sea cucumbers, including wound healing, tumor prevention/contraction, neuroprotection, anticoagulation, antimicrobial protection, and antioxidant properties.
Researchers from the Indonesian Academy of Sciences have published a review summarizing the main medicinal and health benefits of functional sea cucumbers found in Asia, as well as discussing the structural significance and potential applications of functional components extracted from sea cucumbers, as well as their nutritional value.
1. Trends in development
Sea cucumber contains high value-added compounds, such as carotenoids, bioactive peptides, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, collagen, gelatin, chondroitin sulfate and amino acids, which are said to have potential therapeutic value. They are also low in lipids and toxicity, which makes them ideal for health foods and biomedical products. Researchers and manufacturers are particularly interested in the sulfated polysaccharides present in sea cucumbers. It is reported that it has the effect of lowering blood sugar. There are also differences in the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids in different types of sea cucumbers. This fatty acid can be used in many health foods and In medicine.
Triterpene saponins, another sea cucumber-derived compound that has attracted the attention of scientists and industry, are said to have therapeutic, antifungal, cytotoxic, hemolytic and immunomodulatory properties.
2, the future market needs to break through
The research has prompted manufacturers to explore more direct therapeutic food and drug applications, although with little success. To date, there are no commercial products of sea cucumber-derived compounds for specific health and nutrition applications on the market, and relatively few sea cucumber products are used in the health food and pharmaceutical markets.
As a functional food, sea cucumber did not achieve the expected goal. Sea cucumber-derived functional foods face significant challenges in the food industry as they appear to be a completely new and unfamiliar area for product developers in terms of marketing and developing business strategies, and translating scientific advances and nutritional innovations into consumer product development is an expensive and complex process.
Industry participants should not only understand the scientific and health benefits of sea cucumbers, but also understand the current consumers. As a natural raw material, sea cucumber has high application potential in food and medicine. Therefore, in the research field of new drug development, these marine organisms can be used to the maximum. However, understanding the specific structure and bioactivity relationships of marine algal fibers remains a great challenge.
Adequate clinical trials are needed for sea cucumber-derived bioactive substances in drug development. More importantly, once their biological activities and health benefits are confirmed, new problems need to be solved, such as the culture of sea cucumbers, industrial-scale production of functional ingredients, extraction and purification of functional ingredients, and scientifically proven health properties.
