protein hydrolysate


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.

hydrolysate

 [hi-drol´ĭ-zāt]
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.

pro·tein hy·drol·y·sate

(pro'tēn hī-drol'i-sāt, prō'tē-in),
A sterile solution of amino acids and soft-chain peptides prepared from a suitable protein by acid or enzymatic hydrolysis; used intravenously for the maintenance of positive nitrogen balance in severe illness, and after surgery involving the alimentary tract; or used orally in the diets of infants allergic to milk or as a supplement when high protein intake from ordinary foods cannot be accomplished.

protein hydrolysate

The amino acids obtained from splitting proteins by hydrolysis; used as a source of amino acids in certain diets.
