Meat tenderizers contain enzymes. How do these enzymes affect protein in meat?


The enzymes break the tendons and muscle to make them more chewable. As I understand it, however, the protein content that is usable in the body is unchanged. The enzyme simply does the job that the old timers did with a meat hammer.


Thank you so much DrBob222! I could not have done this without you! Thanks again!
