So, what is oleoyl hydrolyzed animal protein?

Oleoyl hydrolyzed animal protein is a food ingredient derived from animal sources, typically collagen or gelatin. It is a hydrolyzed protein, meaning it has been broken down into smaller peptides through a process of enzymatic digestion. The oleoyl group is a type of fatty acid that is often added to improve the functional properties of the protein, such as emulsification and solubility. This ingredient is commonly used in processed meats, soups, sauces, and other food products to enhance texture, flavor, and nutritional value. It is a rich source of amino acids and can provide several health benefits, such as improved joint health and skin elasticity.
