So, what is hydrolyzed plant protein?

Hydrolyzed plant protein is a versatile food ingredient derived from various plant sources such as soy, wheat, and corn. It is produced by breaking down plant proteins into smaller peptides through a hydrolysis process, resulting in a flavor-enhancing and texturizing agent. Hydrolyzed plant protein is commonly used in processed foods, vegan and vegetarian products, and sports nutrition supplements to add savory flavor, improve mouthfeel, and boost protein content. Its natural origin makes it a popular choice for health-conscious consumers looking for plant-based alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. Additionally, hydrolyzed plant protein is known for its umami taste and is often used as a healthy substitute for monosodium glutamate (MSG).
