Hydrolyzed Protein is a prepared product resulting from the process of hydrolysis through enzymes, acids, bases among other processes, forming shorter protein chains with lower molecular mass. It is a nutritional and functional ingredient used in the composition of feed intended exclusively for animal feed.
The main advantages in use are
- Highly digestible and absorbed by the animal organism;
- They have low molecular weight and are considered hypoallergenic;
- They are highly soluble in water.
Chicken hydrolysed proteins have extensive use in the diet of animals, especially in critical stages of development, such as weaning piglets, dogs and cats, early life of broilers and laying hens, in diets in the larval and juvenile phases of fish and shrimps, as they provide highly digestible, palatable protein, resulting in better weight gain.
