Objective
The overall goal of this project is to determine the potentials for the production of bioactive phosvitin phosphopeptides using the novel combination technology of the pressurized heat-pretreatment and two-enzyme system and its applicability as the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, or cosmeceutical agents. To accomplish the goal, we propose two specific objectives:To produce enzyme hydrolysates of phosvitin from hen's egg yolk using the novel combination technology of pressurized heat pretreatment and two-enzyme system.To evaluate the functional and structural characteristics of the phosphopeptides in the hydrolysates.
