Hydrolysis

Enzymatic Breakdown of Protein for More Rapid Digestion Proteins are long chains of amino acids (>100) joined by peptide bonds. Hydrolysis is the process whereby these bonds are broken forming smaller chains of amino acids depending on the type of enzyme used and the processing conditions. The polypeptides (50-100 amino acids) and peptides ( Hydrolysis […]

Hydrolysed Whey Proteins

These are advanced supplements. Hydrolysed whey protein isolates have a bitter taste but will significantly boost recovery from intense workouts. They may also be useful in other applications, which require a rapidly digested protein. Hydrolysed whey is rich in rapidly digested tri- and di- peptides. These peptides are absorbed up to 234% faster than free […]
