Freeze‐induced protein denaturation of pollack surimi was investigated as affected by the addition of sugar and/or polyol, including a starch hydrolysate product, and/or phosphates during 8 months frozen storage. Polydextrose® appeared to substitute for the sucrose/sorbitol now used in surimi manufacture without changes in cryoprotective effect. The maltodextrin adversely affected gel‐forming properties, although it maintained the salt‐soluble protein extractability nearly as well as did sucrose/sorbitol or Polydextrose®. The cryoprotective effects of phosphate addition seemed to depend upon the pH and/or specific phosphate ion used.
