This study evaluated the possible used of white muscle from cooked skipjack tuna as a constituent of diet foods. White muscles from the belly and dorsal area of cooked skipjack tuna were identified as anterior, median, and posterior. The skipjack tuna white muscle contained more moisture and ash (except for part I in both the belly and dorsal muscles) than chicken muscle, white it had less crude protein and crude lipid (except for part II in belly muscle). The yield was the highest in part I of both the dorsal and belly parts among the various parts of white muscles. The skipjack tuna white muscle contained 14-18% fewer calories than chicken breast muscle. Part I from both the belly and dorsal muscles had higher total amino acid contents than the other parts, but lower contents than chicken breast muscle. White muscle of skipjack tuna was rich in minerals, such as phosphorus, iron, and zinc. The total free amino acid content of part I in the belly and dorsal muscles was 1,152. 1 and 1,215.7 mg/100 g, respectively, and was 1.7-1.8 times higher than in chicken breast muscle. The major amino acids in the white muscles from skipjack tuna were taurine, histidine, anserine, and carnosine. Based on these results, if it is possible to mask the fish odor, all parts of the white muscle from skipjack tuna could be used as constituents of diet foods.
