Hydrolyzed proteins are used as a flavor enhancer in food industries. It is a precursor to produce MSG. The hydrolyzed process breaks down protein into smaller-chained amino acids, which promotes speedier absorption and allows for quicker muscle building. The use of protein hydrolysate as a nutritional supplement has recently received increased attention as one of the more effective weight loss supplements available today. Protein hydrolyzed peptides or amino acids are peptide chains of amino acids that have been specially processed to form a digestible supplement. The process of hydrolysis breaks down the amino acids in the peptide chain, causing them to release their stored energy in the form of a much more concentrated source of amino acids. This process is known as hydrolysis and was first used thousands of years ago to break down tough meats and other food for consumption. Modern-day researchers and technologists have refined this process to create high-value protein supplements.
