Abstract—Degreased walnut meal was hydrolyzed by trypsin and the optimal hydrolysis conditions were at the enzyme to substrate of 9.2×105 U/g with the hydrolysis time of 30h. The effects of acidic/alkaline treatments on the antioxidant stability of WPH (liquid walnut meal protein hydrolysate), WPHP-s (spray-dried WPH sample) and WPHP-f (freeze-dried sample) were assessed. These samples were quite stable under acidic conditions, remaining approximately 90% of its original reducing power and 85% of its OH• scavenging activity. However, they were susceptible to alkaline treatments (at pH>10.0) and lost>50% of their antioxidant activities. In terms of heat processing, common pasteurization (65°C×30 min) or autoclaving sterilization (121°C×20 min) treatment did not show notably effects on the antioxidant activities of these three samples. Different drying methods (spray-drying or freeze-drying) demonstrated very slight influence on their structure and activities, as further confirmed by molecular weight distribution assay.
