So, what is hydrolyzed prótein?

Hydrolyzed protein is a type of protein that has undergone hydrolysis, a process that breaks down the protein into smaller peptides and amino acids. This makes the protein easier to digest and absorb by the body. Hydrolyzed protein is commonly used as an ingredient in sports supplements, protein bars, and meal replacement shakes. It is also added to processed foods to enhance flavor, texture, and nutrient content. Hydrolyzed protein is derived from various sources such as whey, soy, and collagen, and can provide a complete amino acid profile. It is a versatile ingredient that can benefit athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and individuals with dietary restrictions.
