Hydrolysis is a process through which proteins are broken into small molecules, that is, peptides, tripeptides and oligopeptides, emulating the result of the digestive action that our body performs on gastrointestinal proteins...
Not all sports drinks are the same. There are many products on the market: with or without sugars, with different types of mineral salts, more or less concentrated.
Inulin is a fiber that is naturally present in various plants including onion, garlic, chicory, artichoke, and leek. It is not digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract, so it passes directly to the colon, where it works as prebiotic, providing nutrients for the intestinal microbiota.
Carnitine is a naturally occurring molecule in the human body and in foods of animal origin.
L-citrulline is an amino acid. Its name derives from citrullus, or "watermelon", the fruit from which it was first isolated, in 1914.

Oat represents one of the healthiest cereals in the world, but unfortunately, it is still not very popular among consumers. Let's find out its nutritional properties and the benefits it can bring.
It is really astonishing that elements of nature are so chemically complex that they cannot be remotely emulated by the most complex and elaborate engineering device. Foods have an enormous nutrient complexity we are often unaware of.
The gels are defined as biphasic colloidal systems: a liquid phase embedded in a solid phase.
Scientific interest is continuously increasing towards new biomolecules with beneficial effects on human health. These include bioactive peptides, short fragments of proteins consisting of...
Vitamin D (calciferol) is a fundamental micronutrient for our health. Specifically, vitamin D refers to a group of liposoluble pro-hormones consisting of five different molecules, of which the most important for our body are vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol).
