So, what is myristoyl hydrolyzed animal protein?

Myristoyl hydrolyzed animal protein is a food ingredient that is derived from animal sources and undergoes a process of hydrolysis to create a highly concentrated protein extract. It contains myristic acid, which is a saturated fatty acid that can provide a rich, creamy taste and texture to foods. This ingredient is often used in processed foods such as snacks, baked goods, and sauces as a flavor enhancer and emulsifier. Its high protein content makes it a popular choice in protein bars and shakes for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Additionally, it is used in cosmetics and personal care products for its moisturizing properties.
