Cows' milk allergy is the most frequent food allergy in children, and beta-lactoglobulin (beta-Lg) is a major allergen. Milk-based hypoallergenic ingredients are manufactured by enzymatic hydrolysis, a process that could be improved by the application of high-pressure treatments. This study showed that the treatment of beta-Lg dissolved in buffer with chymotrypsin and trypsin under high pressure for relatively short times accelerated proteolysis by leading to a rapid removal of the intact protein. The rapid proteolysis of the beta-Lg substrate under pressure led to the production, in 20 min, of hydrolysates with lower immunoglobulin (Ig) G binding than those produced in 8 h (chymotrypsin) or 48 h (trypsin) at atmospheric pressure. However, those hydrolysates retained some residual IgE-binding properties that could be traced to the preferential release, during the initial stages of proteolysis, of peptides containing IgE epitopes, such as (Val-41-Lys-60), (Leu-149-Ile-162), and (Ser-21-Arg-40). The formation of these fragments was favored when proteolysis was conducted under high pressure due to the preferential hydrolysis of Arg-40 and Arg-148 by trypsin, and Tyr-42 and Leu-149 by chymotrypsin, all located at the dimer interface of beta-Lg or very close to it. Although our results do not support that trypsin and chymotrypsin under high pressure selectively address the allergenic regions of beta-Lg, it is possible to select the conditions that quickly produce hydrolysates with reduced potential allergenicity that could be used in hypoallergenic foods.
