Our expertise gives you more choice, including tailored solutions

Our hydrolysates are the result of a proprietary process, using selected enzymes to break down the proteins into peptides while controlling the extent of the process.


So you can choose the right degree of hydrolysis for your needs, from mild (digestive comfort and fast absorption) to moderate (fast absorption, digestive comfort, tolerance, reducing risk of developing cows’ milk protein allergy, and enteral feeding).

Whey Protein Hydrolysate is hygroscopic. Keep separated from odoriferous and volatile materials to prevent the absorption of flavour and odour taints. Ensure adequate protection by storing at temperatures below 25°C and relative humidities below 65% to extend the shelf life.

Packages should not be in direct contact with walls or floors. Stock should be used preferably within 24 months of manufacture.
