The use of Annzyme® protease in the production of vegetable protein peptides
December 1st, 2020

It is an important direction of deep processing of plant protein to produce soybean peptide, wheat peptide, corn peptide, pea peptide and other vegetable peptide products by using protease to hydrolyze various vegetable protein. Through proper enzymatic hydrolysis process, vegetable protein can be treated to give full play to its function and expand the application field.
Compared with animal protein, the advantage of vegetable protein is that it contains no cholesterol and almost no saturated fat, it can effectively reduce the risk of chronic diseases while obtaining high-quality protein, which is of great significance to human health. In addition, milk and other mammalian dairy contains lactose which is easy to cause abdominal distension and other gastrointestinal discomfort for the most Chinese people have lactose intolerance. However, plant protein does not contain lactose, so it has less burden on intestines and stomach.
Peptide is a kind of small molecule protein, which not only has good nutritional properties, but also has excellent physiological properties and more functional properties than protein. Because of these good properties, all kinds of vegetable peptides can be used in health food for the elderly, athletes food, recovery nutrition food and some new varieties of fermented food.
It is an important direction of deep processing of plant protein to produce soybean peptide, wheat peptide, corn peptide, pea peptide and other vegetable peptide products by using protease to hydrolyze various vegetable protein. The source of vegetable protein is rich, accounting for 70% of the world's total protein supply, and is also an important source for human use. Through proper enzymatic hydrolysis process, vegetable protein can be treated to give full play to its function and expand the application field.
The physiological characteristics of several common plant peptides are as follows:
Good amino acid composition
Quickly supplement physical energy
Lowering blood pressure
Rich in alanine and lysine
Protect the liver by reducing the harm of alcohol
Rich in glutamine
Improve the immunity and anti-fatigue
Compared with biological extraction, microbial fermentation, acid and alkali treatment, enzymatic synthesis, recombinant DNA synthesis and chemical synthesis, protease hydrolysis has become the main method for the production of vegetable peptides because of its advantages of safety, easy control, high efficiency and cost.
Application of Annzyme® protease in the production of vegetable peptides
Main application directions: soybean peptide, wheat peptide, corn peptide, rice peptide and various vegetable peptide production and processing.
Application of Annzyme® protease in soybean peptide:
Protease AP-200 series products have rich hydrolysis sites, which can quickly hydrolyze macromolecular protein into polypeptides, small peptides and amino acids. It can be widely used in the hydrolysis of various protein raw materials. It can effectively shorten the reaction time, reduce the viscosity of materials, improve the content of small peptides and improve the functionality of products.
Complex protease FF104: targeted modification of hydrophobic amino acid ends that produced during protein hydrolysis. Reduce the hydrophobicity of the product, greatly reduce the bitterness, improve the hydrolysis degree, and optimize the taste.
In practical application, AP-200 series products and FF104 were selected to improve the taste, yield and quality of the products.
