Hydrolysate Preparation with High Content of 5-Hydroxytryptophan from Liquid Egg Protein and Its Sleep-Potentiating Activity

Abstract

Alcalase hydrolysis of liquid egg white was used to produce 5-hydroxytryptophan (HTP) under various conditions and investigate the sleep-potentiating activity of liquid egg white hydrolysate (LEH) on pentobarbital-induced sleep. Alcalase hydrolysis yielded the highest content of 5-HTP (13.50 μg/mL), while neutrase hydrolysis showed the lowest 5-HTP content… (More)
