In addition to the nutritional value, cheese and other fermented milk-based products are a good source of biologically active proteins and peptides. Bioactive peptides in cheese are mainly formed during cheese production, especially during ripening, which is one of the most important stages in cheese production. Since the ripening process differ significantly depending on the cheese type, it can be assumed that their bioactivity is also substantially different. White brined cheeses are specific…

Preliminary Study of Extended Ripening Effects on Peptides Evolution and DPPH Radical Scavenging Activity in Mexican Goat Cheese

Cheese ripening causes intense proteolysis, particularly when the cheese contains starter cultures. Several studies have shown the presence of bioactive peptides in goat’s milk cheeses with

Antioxidant activity of ultrafiltered-Feta cheese made with adjunct culture during ripening

Six lactic acid bacteria strains previously isolated and fully identified from Motal cheese were used in ultrafiltered (UF)-Feta cheese as adjunct cultures. Antioxidant activity in cheese samples was

The Influence of Milk Type on the Proteolysis and Antioxidant Capacity of White-Brined Cheese Manufactured from High-Heat-Treated Milk Pretreated with Chymosin

The cheeses prepared in this study could be a good source of antioxidant peptides after in vitro digestion and in vivo functionality investigations, but these characteristics depend on the type of milk and the ripening time.

Protein, fatty acid, mineral profiles and antioxidant potential of Kupres cheese at different stage of ripening

Kupres cheese is a traditional Bosnian full-fat hard cheese. This paper deals with the change of protein and fatty acid profiles, mineral content and antioxidant potential during the period of three

Quality characteristics of white brined cheese produced from goat milk with different somatic cell count

This experimental work aimed to investigate the quality characteristics of white brined cheese during ripening, produced from goat milk with different somatic cell count: I group – with low somatic

Functional and sensory properties of olives fortified spreadable cheese

The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of olive type (green and black) and content on quality and sensory properties of spreadable cheese with olives. Total solids, pH value, colour

The effect of in vitro digestion on antioxidant properties of water-soluble and insoluble protein fractions of traditional Serbian white- brined cheeses

The influence of simulated in vitro digestion on antioxidant potential of protein fractions of traditional Serbian white-brined cheeses was investigated. Water-soluble (WSF) and water-insoluble

Physical, Chemical, Microbiological and Sensory Characteristics of a Probiotic Beverage Produced from Different Mixtures of Cow's Milk and Soy Beverage by Lactobacillus acidophilus La5 and Yoghurt Culture

The obtained results represent a good basis for further optimisation of the ideal volume ratios of cow's milk and soy beverage for production of fermented beverages characterised by good viability of probiotic bacteria as well as by good functional, nutritive and sensory characteristics.


The extensive genetic diversity of crop landraces deposited in gene banks is an important part of future breeding programs. However, in order to exploit this potential, it is necessary both to
