    Abstract
    Angiotensin I converting enzyme inhibition is one of the key factors for cardiovascular disease, and inhibition of ACE activity is related to the prevention of high blood pressure. Until now, some ACE inhibitory peptides have been found in the protein hydrolysates of red algae, and most of them were derived from phycobiliproteins and rubisco. In this study, we modified the preparation method to evaluate the potential of ACE inhibitory activity from protein hydrolysate of red alga Mazzaella japonica except for phycobiliproteins and rubisco. As a result, we identified 11 peptides...
