Peptides for blood pressure control

Sunday, 01 June, 2008 | Supplied by: DSM Food Specialties

DSM has launched TensGuard — an ingredient developed to target the growing global market for blood pressure management. The product of advanced enzyme technology, DSM’s TensGuard contains dairy peptides, proven to help control blood pressure to maintain a healthy heart.

The active peptide responsible for the blood pressure lowering effect in TensGuard is the so-called Lactotripeptide Isoleucine-Proline-Proline (IPP). While lactotripeptides are present in normal dairy products, they are inactive within the original milk protein. To become effective, these peptides first need to be released through enzymatic predigestion. TensGuard contains activated lactotripeptides, delivering their benefits in a highly concentrated and convenient form.

TensGuard is a natural dietary ingredient, produced using a process which offers opportunities for food and dietary supplement companies. TensGuard has a clean taste, provides clear solutions in water, necessitates only low dosages and is stable under almost all food processing conditions.
