Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Procedure for obtaining peptides with antioxidant and antihypertensive properties from olive seeds.A research group from the Analytical Chemistry Department at Alcalá University has developed a procedure from which it is possible to obtain peptides with antihypertensive and antioxidant capacity of isolated proteins from olive seed by enzymatic digestion. The method consists of the protein extraction from the olive seeds using a previously developed process, and digest the extracted proteins with Thermolysin enzyme, allowing to obtain peptides with antihypertensive capacity in vitro, or with Alcalase enzyme leading to obtain a peptide extract with antioxidant properties. The group seeks to establish commercial , licensing or collaboration agreements with companies of the food and pharmaceutical sectors interested in both the use strategy of this waste material (olive pits), as in the use of the found bioactive peptides.
