Albumin derived from rapeseed was hydrolyzed sequentially using alcalase and flavorzyme to produce antioxidant peptides. To identify antioxidant peptides, rapeseed albumin hydrolysate (RAH) was fractionated using size exclusion chromatography (G-25). The antioxidant activity and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibiting activity of rapeseed peptides (RSP) purified from RAH were evaluated. The results revealed that RSP-4 had the highest ABTS radical-scavenging activity (TEAC value = 0.24) and ACE-inhibiting capacity (IC50 = 0.19 mg/mL) compared to other fractions. Moreover, RSP-4 was identified as PFDSYFVC (977 D) by electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS).
