Rice protein peptide is a kind of small molecule protein hydrolysate product, which is hydrolyzed by complex protease, membrane separation and desiccation. It is mainly composed of a mixture of polypeptide molecules and a small amount of other free amino acids, sugars and inorganic salts. Rice polypeptide is a high quality functional protein additive with high technical content and market prospect in today’s nutrition food industry. It can be widely used in health food, nutrition food, baked food, athlete food and other fields.
The amino acid content and type of rice protein peptide are consistent with that of rice protein. But rice protein peptides have biological activities that many rice proteins do not.
Its advantages are:
1, easy to digest and absorb: rice peptide in the intestinal absorption rate is better than protein, and can be used as a bioactive peptide in tissue level to cause biological effects of the body.
2, hypoallergenic: enzyme immunoassay study found that the antigenicity of rice peptide only 1/100 ~ 1/1000 of the rice protein, the low antigenicity of rice peptide will not cause allergic reaction after eating.
3, cholesterol-lowering effect of rice protein has the effect of reducing serum cholesterol, the study found: rice polypeptide not only has such a function, but also better. The mechanism is that rice polypeptide can block the absorption of cholesterol in the intestinal tract and promote its expulsion from the body.
4, rice polypeptide blood pressure lowering effect: rice polypeptide can inhibit the activity of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), prevent the contraction of blood vessels, to reduce blood pressure effect, and rice polypeptide on normal blood pressure no hypotensive effect, therefore, it has a cardiovascular disease patients, harmless to the normal human body, safe.
5, promote fat metabolism: rice polypeptide intake, can promote the activity of basic metabolism, after food caloric greatly increased, promote energy metabolism.
6, enhance physical fitness and fatigue recovery: rice polypeptide can enhance muscle, can accelerate the recovery of fatigue. After physical exercise, it is necessary to timely supplement nitrogen source so as not to cause negative balance of muscle protein. Small molecule peptide is more easily absorbed than amino acid and protein, which is conducive to the recovery and enhancement of physical strength.
Scope of use:
1. Nutritious food
The easy absorption and digestibility of rice polypeptide make it used as intestinal nutrition and liquid food in the digestive system, which can be used in convalescent patients, elderly people with declining digestive system and infants with immature digestive function.
2. Health food
The function of rice polypeptide, such as lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, hypoallergenic and promoting fat metabolism, can be used in producing functional health food such as lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, preventing cardiovascular diseases, protein supply of obese patients.
3. Food for athletes
Rice polypeptide is easy to digest and absorb, can quickly provide energy to the body, promote fat metabolism and restore physical strength, it can be used in the production of sports protein fortified food and energy supply drinks, and its low viscosity and soluble under acidic conditions can be used in the production of a variety of acidic drinks.
4. Fermentation industry
Rice polypeptide can promote the development and metabolism of microorganisms, and can be used in the production of yogurt, cheese, vinegar, soy sauce and other fermented foods, which can stabilize food quality and enhance flavor.
5. In ordinary food
Rice polypeptide has low viscosity, good moisture absorption and moisture retention, and strong oxidation resistance, so it can be widely used in plant protein products, fish protein products, baked food and confectionery, which can not only improve their texture and taste, but also improve their quality and shelf life.
