|Enzymatic Activity||Retains 15% of enzymes (much is lost during drying process)||Retains 95% of bioactive enzymes|
|Process||When irradiated all enzymatic activities are destroyed||Never irradiated. All live enzymes activities are preserved.|
|Taste||Strong fish like smell & bitter taste||Odorless with a slight taste of vegetable|
|Ease of Use||Powder often clumps together||Liquid state allows for easy usage|
