When it comes to protein powders, there are many kinds to choose from: whey, casein and soy, not to mention hemp, rice and pea protein powders. Soon you will be able to drink a fish pro- tein shake postworkout thanks to a Peruvian company called Bluewave Marine Ingredients. As gross as this sounds, the protein has no fishy taste and is rapidly digested like whey. This is due to its patented membrane system. Liquefied sardine enters the membrane, which separates it into three different streams: fat-free protein, a fat and biogenic fraction. The fat- free protein is then dried and powdered. One major advantage of the fish protein may be its price. It is estimated that the fish protein isolate will cost almost half as much as whey pro- teins. This is a good, cheaper alternative for high-quality protein powders.
