Comparison of some functionalities of water soluble peptides derived from Turkish cow and goat milk Tulum cheeses during ripening
Abstract In this study, profiles and functional properties such as antioxidant, mineral binding, and antimicrobial activities of water-soluble peptides from Turkish goat milk Tulum cheese and cow milk Tulum cheese were examined during the ripening period. According to the results of RP-HPLC, the number of peptides increased as the ripening days progressed due to proteolysis. DPPH results indicated that the antioxidant activity of peptides increased as the ripening days progressed for these cheeses. However, the highest antioxidant activity of peptide extracts was found in goat milk Tulum cheese according to the DPPH assay. The highest Iron (II) binding activity of peptide extracts was determined in goat milk Tulum cheese on the 60th day. Peptide extracts obtained from goat milk Tulum cheese on the 90th day demonstrated an inhibitory effect against Salmonella typhimurium ATCC 14028.
