So, what is hydrolysed maize protein?

Hydrolysed maize protein is a natural ingredient made by breaking down maize or corn protein into smaller components through a process called hydrolysis. This process involves adding water and enzymes to the protein, which results in the production of amino acids, peptides, and other essential nutrients that are easily absorbed by the body. Hydrolysed maize protein is commonly used as a protein source in food products, especially in vegan and vegetarian alternatives, due to its high nutritional value and easy digestibility. It is also used in cosmetics and personal care products as a moisturizer and hair conditioner, making it a versatile ingredient in various industries.
