So, what is hydrolyzed animal protein?

Hydrolyzed animal protein is a highly concentrated form of protein derived from animal sources, such as chicken, beef, or fish. The hydrolysis process involves breaking down the protein molecules into smaller peptides, which makes them easier to digest and absorb by the body. This ingredient is commonly used in the food industry to add flavor, texture, and nutritional value to a variety of products, including snacks, soups, sauces, and seasonings. Hydrolyzed animal protein is also a popular ingredient in pet food and animal feed due to its high protein content and digestibility.
