So, what is hydrolysed protein?

Hydrolysed protein is a type of protein that has undergone a process called hydrolysis, which involves breaking down large protein molecules into smaller fragments. This process results in a protein powder that is easier to digest and absorb by the body. Hydrolysed protein is commonly derived from animal sources such as beef, chicken, or fish, and is often used as a supplement to aid in muscle recovery and growth. It is also used as a food additive to enhance the flavor and nutritional value of processed foods. Hydrolysed protein is a popular ingredient among athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts due to its high protein content and easy absorption.
