Hydrolysates

We are a leader in hydrolysates with more than 20 years of development experience and a strong market presence.


Hydrolysates are produced by the process of protein hydrolysis, which is the breaking down of proteins into peptides. Selection of the specific enzymes and the conditions under which they are used allow a range of hydrolysates to be manufactured.


Our Protein Hydrolysates are used in medical nutrition, paediatric nutrition and sports applications. Paediatric nutrition is one of the areas of most interest to us. 


Breast milk is the best source of nutrition for infants, but there are situations where babies need to be formula fed, and may experience digestive issues. 


During the first 12 months of life, infants can experience a number of symptoms that are attributed to intolerance of infant formula. These symptoms range from the more common gastrointestinal disturbances, such as regurgitation (“spit up”), colic, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea and gas, to the more severe allergic response to the protein components of the formula.


Whether a baby is experiencing common feeding issues or is predisposed to cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA), parents seek alternative infant formula to provide benefits over standard products. We provide hydrolysate solutions for many babies with feeding sensitivities ranging from common feeding issues to allergy avoidance.
