What is Sardina Pilchardus Hydrolysate?


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

Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate is ground up portions of the European pilchard, a species of the ray-finned fishes that are chiefly used for human consumption, either fresh, frozen or canned. They are also known as true sardine.


Before sardines or pilchards are canned, they are cleaned inside out. The tails, fins, scales, bones and guts are removed and only the meat and some bones are left for processing. The remaining parts are not thrown into waste as they are still usable. They are put into water and are ground up. This procedure is called hydrolysis. What hydrolysis does is it breaks down the fish parts into a new chemical substance with simpler forms of the original complex molecules. The protein is broken down into peptides, starch into glucose and so forth. This end-product is called a hydrolysate.


Sometimes a catalyst such as enzymes like sugar cane molasses and others are used in the hydrolysis procedure to speed up the process. Sardine hydrolysates differ in quality and content depending on their uses. To do this, some components are removed or screened out. For example, if the fish bones are not included, the hydrolysate will most likely be deficient of calcium. Similarly, if the sardine meat is not included, there will be less protein in the hydrolysate. Hydrolysates may also be in liquid or powdered form.


Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate has several uses. It is a good organic fertilizer because it is rich in minerals as well as protein and nitrogen. Besides agricultural use, Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate is also used as animal food. Some supplements also contain Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate for its health benefits as a nutriceutical.
