So, what is hydrolysed milk protein?

Hydrolysed milk protein is a processed form of milk protein that has undergone hydrolysis, which breaks down the larger protein molecules into smaller ones. This makes it easier for the body to digest and absorb. It is commonly used as an ingredient in sports nutrition products and as a protein source in infant formulas. Hydrolysed milk protein is a rich source of essential amino acids, which are necessary for muscle growth and repair. It also has a low lactose content, making it suitable for people with lactose intolerance. Additionally, it is often used as a flavor enhancer and texture improver in various food products.
