Fractionation of functional peptides with ion-­exchange membrane adsorption chromatography

Separation via binding - von Prof. Dr Ulrich Kulozik, Elena Leeb

By deploying specific proteases for the enzymatic hydro­lysis of proteins, the release of peptides can be controlled. This process ­can be used to produce functional peptides, which may exhibit an ability to reduce blood pressure or have a surface-active function. The deployment of biofunctional peptides in food as an “added value” is only ­possible at sufficiently effective concentrations, ­however. Accordingly, processes are required that...
