Sardina Pilchardus Hydrolysate as Animal Food

Sardina Pilchardus Hydrolysate as Animal Food


This ingredient is contained in LoraQuil, a popular Neuroscience vitamin product.

Every year, millions of tons of wastes are produced by sardine processing plants. Most of the wastes are fish parts chopped off from the ones that are to be processed and canned. These large accumulations of yearly wastes contribute to the problem of waste disposal among sardine factories.


However, a procedure called hydrolysis can be done to the sardine leftovers of the factories to make something out of the supposedly useless fish parts. They are mixed into water and grounded up into a substance called Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate. This end-product has all the minerals, oil, enzymes and protein that the sardines has but they are simply broken down into simpler molecules.


This sardine hydrolysate can be used as an ingredient in animal feed. It can be given to dogs, cats, pigs, poultry, even fishes. Because it is rich in protein, minerals and other essential nutrients, fish hydrolysate can be considered a better alternative to artificial animal feed. Depending on the content of the hydrolysate, some nutrients could be present or absent, since some processing companies exclude some fish parts from the hydrolysate. For example, fish bone is a rich source of calcium; excluding it from the hydrolysate could significantly reduce the amount of calcium present in the feed.


Besides the issue of sustainability and affordability, sardine hydrolysate is also very effective in giving proper nutrition to animals. It may not be the only recommended food that can be given, but it contributes a lot to their nutritional intake. Experiments have shown that poultry and pigs that were fed fish hydrolysate gained 10-20% increase in weight in less amount of fish hydrolysate than with other animal feed.
