Caseins as source of bioactive peptides

  title={Caseins as source of bioactive peptides},
  author={S. Victor de Silva and Francisco X. Malcata},
Biologically active peptides are of particular interest in food science and nutrition because they have been shown to play physiological roles, including opioid-like features, as well as immunostimulating and anti-hypertensive activities, and ability to enhance calcium absorption. Hidden or inactive in the amino-acid sequence of dairy proteins, they can be released or activated in vivo during gastrointestinal digestion, or upstream during food processing via specific, enzyme-mediated… CONTINUE READING
