Owing to the fast absorption rate of hydrolyzed whey protein, it is being used as a breast milk substitute. Through enzymatic hydrolysis, it is possible to break down cow’s milk protein into peptides and amino acids, which makes it easier for babies to digest and absorb the protein. It may also reduce gastrointestinal passage time and contribute to reducing minor feeding issues and promote digestive comfort.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is favorable properties of hydrolyzed whey protein. The demand for hydrolyzed whey protein is increasing due to its favorable properties. It has a high bio-availability, and a better absorption rate than whey concentrates and whey isolates. Hydrolyzed whey protein acts as a powerful antioxidant and boosts the immune system. It facilitates rapid digestion.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high prices of hydrolyzed whey protein. Hydrolyzed whey protein is more expensive than other forms of whey proteins such as isolates and concentrates. The high price of hydrolyzed whey protein is a challenging factor for the market growth.
