Ingredient Type: Digestive enzyme
Additive Number: 1104

Lipase is an enzyme that helps break down fats and oils into smaller molecules called fatty acids and glycerol. It is naturally produced in the pancreas and released into the small intestine to help digest the fats in our diet.

In protein powders, lipase may be added as an ingredient to aid in the digestion and absorption of fats and oils present in the powder. This can be especially useful for those who have difficulty digesting fats or have a high-fat diet.

While lipase is generally considered safe to consume in moderate amounts, some people may experience digestive side effects such as nausea, bloating, or diarrhea.
