Enzymatic protein hydrolysates in human nutrition

Author(s): Clemente A


Protein hydrolysates constitute an alternative to intact proteins and elemental formulas in the development of special formulations designed to provide nutritional support to patients with different needs. The production of extensive protein hydrolysates by sequential action of endopeptidases and exoproteases coupled with the development of post-hydrolysis procedures is considered the most effective way to obtain protein hydrolysates with defined characteristics. This paper reviews the development and use of protein hydrolysates for dietary treatment of patients with phenylketonuria, food allergy and chronic liver failure.
