I have never heard of it, so I have no idea. I suspect that it would make a difference as to the source of the protein, but I'm not sure. Why would you want to use something pre-digested? Do you have problems with your stomach as well?

As I said, I really don't know, but it seems to me that too much protein, of any sort, would be hard for a kidney to handle. Pre-digested or not. The kidney does not digest the protein, merely helps to reabsorb it.
