So, what is hydrolyzed pea protein?

Hydrolyzed pea protein is a plant-based protein source that is derived from yellow split peas through a process called hydrolysis. This process breaks down the protein into smaller amino acid chains, making it easier for the body to absorb and utilize. Hydrolyzed pea protein is a popular ingredient in plant-based protein powders and supplements, as it provides all nine essential amino acids necessary for human health. It is also a common ingredient in vegan and vegetarian food products, as it is a sustainable and allergen-friendly alternative to animal-based proteins. Additionally, hydrolyzed pea protein has a neutral taste and can easily be incorporated into a variety of recipes.
