So, what is hydrolýsed vegetable proteins?

Hydrolyzed vegetable proteins are derived from plant sources such as soy, wheat, and corn that have been broken down into smaller protein molecules through a process called hydrolysis. This process involves using heat, enzymes, or acids to break down the proteins into amino acids and peptides, which are easier for the body to absorb and utilize. Hydrolyzed vegetable proteins are often used as flavor enhancers in processed foods, as well as in the production of vegetarian and vegan meat substitutes. They are a good source of protein and can help to improve the texture and flavor of food products. However, some people may be allergic to certain types of hydrolyzed vegetable proteins, particularly soy protein.
