Interests: bioactive peptides; food proteins; anti-hypertensive activity; anti-inflammatory activity; peptide absorption; molecular signalling mechanims of peptides
Food-derived bioactive peptides are increasingly becoming recognized as major food compounds for human health promotion by preventing the occurrence of chronic diseases through their impacts on the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, immune, and nervous systems. New discoveries on bioactive peptides are important for the maintaining human health and commercial development of the area of functional foods and/or nutraceuticals. This Special Issue covers a wide range of research topics specifically on food-derived bioactive peptides including the in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation of biological activities, bioaccessibility, intestinal absorption, bioavailability, the effect on chronic diseases, and modulating human nutrition.Dr. Kaustav Majumder
