BENITEZ, Ricardo; IBARZ, Albert  y  PAGAN, Jordi. Protein hydrolysates: processes and applications. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.2, pp. 227-236. ISSN 1851-6114.

In the enzymatic hydrolysis of proteins up to peptides or amino acids, by the action of proteolytic enzymes, the final composition and therefore the use of the hydrolizates will depend on the protein source, on the type of protease used, on the hydrolysis conditions and on the hydrolysis grade reached in the reaction. Hydrolizates are used widely in food technology due to their nutritional or functional properties (solubility, emulsifient power, foaming capacity). This work shows the present trend in the skills used to obtain hydrolizates by means of enzymes as well as the different methods used for the control of these preparations; besides theirs likely applications are also indicated.

Palabras clave : Enzymatic hydrolysis; Proteins; Proteases; Characterization; Degree of hydrolysis.
