Marked changes in the specificity of hydrolysis of alphas1-, beta-, and kappa-caseins by lactocepin III from Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris SK11 were found in humectant systems giving the equivalent water activity (aw) and salt concentration of cheddar cheese. Correlations were noted between certain peptides produced by the activity of lactocepin III in the humectant systems and peptides found in cheddar cheese. The stability of lactocepin III was compared with that of lactocepin I from L… CONTINUE READING
