Potent angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptide mixtures were obtained from the hydrolysis of β-lactoglobulin (βLg) using Protease N Amano, a food-grade commercial proteolytic preparation. Hydrolysis experiments were carried out for 8 h at two different temperatures and neutral pH. Based on their ACE inhibitory activity, samples of 6 h of digestion were chosen for further analysis. The temperature used for the hydrolysis had a marked influence on the type of peptides produced and their concentration in the hydrolysate. Protease N Amano was found to produce very complex peptide mixtures; however, the partially fractionated hydrolysates had already very potent ACE inhibitory activity. The novel heptapeptide SAPLRVY was isolated and characterised. It corresponded to βLg f(36–42) and had an IC50 value of 8 μm, which is considerably lower than the most potent ACE inhibitory peptides derived from bovine βLg reported so far.
