    Hi, can someone please explain the process for Hydrolizing worms?
    It's something i'm looking into getting done or doing myself.
    And please don't get really deep with your answers, just a laymans explanation will be fine.

    Regards Sma

    I have never heard of this. Can you expand the idea slightly? What kind of worms are we talking about? And why would we want to hydrolize them?

    Boil'em
    Hydrolyzed protein is protein that has been hydrolyzed or broken down into its component amino acids. While there are many means of achieving this, two of the most common are prolonged boiling in a strong acid (acid-HVP) or strong base or using an enzyme such as the pancreatic protease enzyme to stimulate the naturally occurring hydrolytic process.

    There ya go- enjoy your worm soup.

    And anothewr source of omega 3s is realy yummy-------brains and eyes of mammals are extremely rich in DHA as well as other n-3 fatty acids.[87] DHA is a major structural component of the mammalian brain, and is in fact the most abundant (n-3) fatty acid in the brain
    l'm sure this would sell about as well as your worms

    Sounds a bit cruel to the worms, if you ask me.
