The dipeptides Ala-Trp, Val-Phe, and Val-Tyr inhibit the angiotensin-I-converting enzyme. They are encrypted within the primary sequences of different food proteins, e.g. milk proteins. The angiotensin-I-converting enzyme inhibitory potency of these synthetic dipeptides was quantified using a spectrophotometric assay. The dipeptides showed no adverse(More)
This review article deals with the assessment of cytotoxic and allergenic potential of bioactive proteins and peptides. It is evident that 'novel' foods or nutraceuticals containing bioactive proteins and peptides must fulfill their proposed "health claim". Furthermore, there is a need to assess their potential to exert adverse effects before they can be(More)
