So, what is hydrolyzed soya protein?

Hydrolyzed soya protein is a highly processed ingredient made from soybeans that has been broken down into smaller components through a process called hydrolysis. This process involves using water and enzymes to break the protein molecules down into their individual amino acids, making them more easily digestible and absorbed by the body. Hydrolyzed soya protein is commonly used as a flavor enhancer and emulsifier in a wide range of food products, including soups, sauces, snacks, and processed meats. Due to its high protein content, it is often used as a vegetarian or vegan alternative to animal-based proteins. However, some people may have sensitivities or allergies to soy and should avoid consuming products that contain hydrolyzed soya protein.
