    We investigated the physical properties and color values of surimi mixtures with added natural red pigments from laver Pyropia yezoensis. After adding the natural red pigment from seaweed extract to surimi, the hardness, gumminess, and chewiness of the surimi decreased compared to the negative controls. The L* color value was lower for the surimi mixture than the negative controls, but the a* and b* color values were higher. After cold storage for 7 days, the unheated surimi mixture showed increased firmness, but decreased adhesiveness. Moreover, the gumminess and chewiness of the surimi mixture stored after heating were increased compared to the pre-storage values. These results indicate that seaweed extract pigments may be used as additives for surimi, to increase the color preference, with little effect on the physical properties.
