So, what is hydrolyzed pork protein?

Hydrolyzed pork protein is a processed food ingredient that has been broken down into smaller amino acid molecules through hydrolysis. This process results in a concentrated form of protein that is easily digested and absorbed by the body, making it a popular choice for use in various food products. Hydrolyzed pork protein adds flavor and texture to foods, while also providing a source of essential nutrients, such as iron and zinc. It is commonly used in snacks, soups, gravies, and seasonings, and is particularly popular in Asian cuisine. However, it may not be suitable for those with dietary restrictions related to pork or animal proteins.
