Health Effects of Cheese Components with a Focus on Bioactive Peptides
Fermented Foods in Health and Disease Prevention
Cheese is a rich source of essential nutrients; in particular, proteins, fat, vitamins and minerals. In addition to their nutritional role, cheese components are also able to exert important health benefits, with calcium, fatty acids and bioactive peptides being the main players. This chapter presents an updated revision on the health effects of cheese components focusing on the most studied bioactive peptides activities. They are liberated during cheese ripening, where casein is hydrolyzed bydoi:10.1016/b978-0-12-802309-9.00011-x fatcat:tlzzvynqfzeunm4i5esebdo6mm
