Partially Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate

Partially Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate – The form of whey protein isolate in Time 4 Whey Professional is partially hydrolysed. This means that the whey has undergone a process known as enzymatic hydrolysis to break the protein into smaller protein fragments using enzymes similar to those produced in the human digestive system.

Protein molecules can be ‘partially’ hydrolysed, meaning their amino acid chains are broken down into smaller segments. Alternatively, they can be fully hydrolysed, meaning each amino acid has been isolated.

Hydrolysed whey has the same amino acid content as non-hydrolysed, but as the protein fragments in the hydrolysed versions are smaller, they are more rapidly digested. This allows the amino acids to enter your muscles more quickly to enhance growth.

As hydrolysed proteins are essentially pre-digested, the body can not only absorb them more quickly than intact proteins, but also more easily and they are better tolerated by the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This is particularly important for people with digestive disorders and food allergies or sensitivities.
