Numerous bioactive peptides and protein fractions with different functional properties can be found encrypted in the primary structure of many dietary proteins. Such bioactive compounds have physiological effect on the major body systems, shown previously.
There is increasing commercial interest in the production of bioactive peptides from various sources. Industrial-scale production of such peptides is, however, hampered by the lack of suitable technologies.
Our market research report firstly reviews the basic scientific information available on bioactive peptides by sources (milk fractions, colostrum, egg, soy marine, and meat), sub-types (the major protein fractions in bovine milk include α-LA (lactalbumine), β-LG (lactoglobuline), caseins, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, proteose-peptide fractions, and minor whey proteins such as transferrin and serum albumin), and by applications (Infant nutrition, clinical nutrition, Food industry, sport food, etc).
The quantitative section presents a detailed assessment of the current and expected global market by bioactive peptides. The report also provides a comprehensive review of market drivers and, opportunities.
The major players in the market have also been identified and profiled.
