- Food protein hydrolysates and peptides are known as a promising functional food ingredient. Encapsulation can be used for improving the bioavailability and organoleptic properties of peptides. In the present study, good entrapment efficiency was obtained when 2.5% sodium alginate, 3% protein concentration, and 2% calcium chloride. Fourier transform infra-red analysis (FTIR) and scanning electron microscope presented that papain hydrolysate was cross-linked in calcium alginate beads. The peptide showed high antioxidant activity, metal ion chelation activity, and reducing power as compared to encapsulated peptide.
