A friend of mine has been collecting large amount of biggest deep sea fish scales from the wet market or fisheries. I can see he is real keen in doing it for years, and he thoroughly removed the entire stink and foul-smelly with properly procedures, from brushing each fish scale, it really taking his precious times to clean up the wet fish scales one by one, to dry it and the whole process of preparation, then make it into dried fish scales. He then preserved it for storage in future usage. Anyway, nowadays you can easily find the dried fish scales selling in market to solve the troublesome cleaning process.
I felt so thankfully that my friend gave me lots of ready washed and cleaned dried fish scales for my blog writing and making healthy dessert. As when I tried to cook for a few times, I found it is nice for what was at first I thought fish scales should be fishy smelly odor in taste but not. With the preparation and added some pandanus leaves to it. It just tastes like pandan Jelly. Nice taste and not that bad.

Although drinking collagen-rich soup or making jelly from the natural source of fish scales may not be easily absorb into human body, due to the human digestive system is the main filter out a large part, and how much the fish scales collagen and its micro-nutrients can really reach the human body, and skin in absorption is very limited, therefore, the process of benefit is relatively lengthy, the efficiency is low, still daily consumption may help too.
Thus, Collagen extracted in smallest molecules to the human body needs the degradation of collagen peptide molecular, and amino acids then only can be absorbed by the body. However, Collagen peptides, collagen molecules into the human body needs obtaining from fish scale containing peptide sequence of the protein is more comprehensive, more nutrition and the affinity of the human body. Anyway, no harm give it a try, fish scales is the cheapest to get it from fishery.
