So, what is hvp?

HVP, or hydrolyzed vegetable protein, is a flavor enhancer commonly used in processed foods. It is produced by breaking down proteins from vegetable sources such as soy, corn, and wheat through a process called hydrolysis. The resulting product is a brown powder with a savory, umami flavor that is used to add depth and complexity to a variety of foods, including soups, sauces, snacks, and meats. HVP is often used as a substitute for monosodium glutamate (MSG) and can also be found in vegetarian and vegan products as a source of protein and flavor. However, some people may be allergic to HVP or have concerns about its high sodium content, so it is important to read food labels carefully.
