    Both the innovative hydrolysis method used in the production of ACB Quinoa Protein and the traditional method of hydrolysis induced when creating Wheat Hydrolysate yield a protein hydrolysate capable of producing hair hydrating benefits at virtually identical levels. This demonstrates a novel approach in hydrolysis, such as the one used in the manufacturing of ACB Quinoa Protein provides just as much moisture as the Wheat Hydrolysate with proven hydration benefits.
