Tryptose is a mixed enzymatic hydrolysate with unique nutritional properties.

The digest conditions are such that it contains many different peptides including those of higher molecular weight (proteoses). It is used to grow the most fastidious of organisms especially when a rapid or profuse growth is required e.g. in blood culture media. Tryptose is also recommended to demonstrate haemolytic reactions on a blood agar base.
It is used in the production of foot and mouth disease vaccine.
