So, what is ammonium hydrolyzed protein?

Ammonium hydrolyzed protein is a food ingredient created by breaking down proteins using ammonia and water. The resulting product is a highly soluble powder that can be used as a flavor enhancer or a source of amino acids. The hydrolysis process breaks down the protein molecules into smaller fragments, which makes it easier for the body to absorb and utilize. This ingredient is commonly used in processed foods, such as snack foods, soups, and sauces, as well as in pet foods and animal feed. It is also used in the production of some cosmetic products.
