Several strains of Lactobacillus helveticus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. lactis were evaluated for their ability to release angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides from a-casein (a-CN) and ß-casein (ß-CN). Casein peptides resulting from L. delbrueckii subsp. lactis CRL 581-mediated hydrolysis exhibited the highest ACE-inhibitory activities, with values of 53 and 40% for a-CN and ß-CN, respectively. The casein hydrolysates were fractionated by reversed-phase high pressure liquid chromatography and some of the active peptides were identified by mass spectrometry. The fraction with the highest ACE-inhibitory activity arose from ß-CN and contained a mixture of the ß-CN f194-206 (QEPVLGPVRGPFP) and f198-206 (LGPVRGPFP) peptides. Also, the ACE-inhibitor tripeptide IPP was identified in all ß-CN hydrolysates; L. delbrueckii subsp. lactis CRL 581 produced the highest amount of this peptide. The bioactive peptides released by CRL 581 strain may be used in the formulation of functional foods and nutraceuticals, representing a healthier and natural alternative for the treatment of hypertension
