Protein hydrolysate ingredients are a mixture of peptides, oligopeptides, and free amino acids which is prepared by partial or extensive hydrolysis. These ingredients are widely used across sports, infant, and functional food products. Milk protein hydrolysate, casein protein hydrolysate and meat protein hydrolysate are some of the types of protein hydrolysate ingredients.
The global protein hydrolysate ingredients market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4,275.2 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2 % over the forecast period (2021-2028).
In January 2021, Aker BioMarine launched Invi, a hydrolyzed protein isolate with a complete amino acid profile that is also rich in minerals, including calcium and magnesium.
In April 2019, Arla Foods Ingredients have launched a 100% whey protein hydrolysate solution called Lacprodan HYDRO. Clear, which is specially formulated for fortifying sparkling water with protein. The ingredient is fat, sugar, and lactose-free, with an optimized taste, and long shelf life.
In July 2018, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) completed the acquisition of Neovia. Neovia had 72 production facilities of animal nutrition solutions across 25 countries in that year.
Europe held dominant position in the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market in 2020, accounting for 33.4% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Asia Pacific, respectively. Increased demand for protein features, recognition of balanced diets and nutritious foods, new technical advances in the protein ingredients industry, increased demand for superior personal care and healthcare products and increased consumption of animal by-products are the key factors owing the growth in the segment during forecast period.

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.
Launch of new products is expected to propel growth of the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2019, Parabel USA Inc. announced to launch a neutral-colored pure protein hydrolysate made from water lentils, designed to be an allergen-free substitute for other plant proteins such as soy and pea.
Major players operating in the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market are focused on launch of new products to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in January 2021, Aker BioMarine launched Invi, a hydrolyzed protein isolate with a complete amino acid profile that is also rich in minerals, including calcium and magnesium.
