So, what is protéase?

Protease is an enzyme that plays a crucial role in the digestion of proteins. This ingredient is commonly used in food processing to enhance the texture and flavor of protein-based foods, such as meat, dairy, and plant-based products. Protease works by breaking down protein molecules into smaller peptides and amino acids, which are easier for the body to absorb and utilize. It can also be used as a tenderizer in meat processing, as well as in the production of cheese and other dairy products. Protease is a valuable ingredient for food manufacturers looking to improve the nutritional value and sensory properties of their products.
