Review on Bioactive Peptides in Milk and Dairy Products, and Their Health Benefits

Daniel Asfaw Kitessa


Bioactive peptides (BAPs) are defined as peptides with hormone or drug like activity that bind to specific receptors leading to induction of physiological responses. The objective of this seminar is to summarize literature reports on the bioactive peptides in milk and dairy products, and their health-benefits on human body. Milk and milk products are important source of bioactive peptides. The bioactive peptides in milk are encrypted in the structure of the parent proteins; therefore it requires enzymatic hydrolysis or food processing to make them active. Different BAPs released from milk protein have different physiological functions which improve the problem of different chronic diseases.
