dc.description.abstract Enzymatic hydrolysis has been employed to modify protein functional properties and discover new sources of antioxidants. In this study, the effect of different enzymatic treatments on antioxidant activity of Porphyra dioica (blades and protein isolate (PI)) was investigated. Protein nitrogen content of P. dioica blades and PI were 23 and 50% (dry weight), respectively. Blades and PI were hydrolyzed with Prolyve®and Prolyve®plus Flavourzyme®. Peptide profiles and molecular mass distribution of the hydrolysates were investigated. The hydrolysis promoted generation of peptides and low molecular mass components <1 kDa. Antioxidant activity was assessed using ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP), 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH ) scavenging, 2,20-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate) (ABTS +) inhibition, and reactive oxygen species scavenging ability, i.e., oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) and hypochlorous acid (HOCl) scavenging assays. In general, enzymatic hydrolysis of P. dioica blades and PI enhanced the in vitro antioxidant activity. Direct hydrolysis of blades improved ORAC values up to 5-fold (from 610 to 3054 mol Trolox eq./g freeze dried sample (FDS). The simultaneous release of phenolic compounds suggested a potential synergistic activity (ORAC and ABTS + assays). Such hydrolysates may be of value as functional food ingredients. en_US
