These amino acids represent the approximate nutritive equivalent of casein, lactalbumin, plasma, fibrin, or other suitable proteins from which the hydrolysate is derived by acid, enzymatic, or other method of hydrolysis. The solution is used directly into the treatment of hypoproteinemia in patients who are unable to eat or absorb food.
