protein hydrolysate

Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.


any compound produced by hydrolysis.
protein hydrolysate a mixture of amino acids prepared by splitting a protein with acid, alkali, or enzyme. Such preparations provide the nutritive equivalent of the original material in the form of its constituent amino acids and are used as nutrient and fluid replenishers in special diets or for patients unable to take ordinary food proteins.
