Summary Multifunctional proteins and peptides from food proteins have been studied over the past few decades to elucidate their biological potency and the beneficial roles they play in human health. Owing to their multiple biological activities, these peptides have a wider role in modulating physiological functions such as antioxidative, antimicrobial, antihypertensive, cytomodulatory, anxiolytic, anorexic, and immunomodulatory activities in living body systems. Highlighted in this chapter is the biological role of some multifunctional peptides as well as the food proteins and enzyme(s) that are responsible for their release. Other challenges to the bioprocessing of multifunctional peptides and the need for research to address them are also discussed.
