The present study investigated the influence of ultra-high pressure (UHP) treatment on angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory (ACEI) activity and quality of milk fermented with Lactobacillus delbrueckii QS306 after storage. By varying treatment pressure, duration of pressure treatment, and duration of fermentation, optimal process parameters for the UHP treatment of milk fermented with QS306 to enhance ACEI activity were found to be 400 MPa, 10 min, and 48 h, respectively. The degree of ACE inhibition of the fermented milk was 91.63 ± 0.02%. After UHP treatment, ACEI activity, apparent viscosity, concentrations of polypeptides and volatile aromatic substances, umami, and richness had increased significantly, bitterness and astringency were significantly reduced, and antioxidant properties were maintained. In addition, UHP fermented milk maintained a high level of ACEI activity and good quality during storage. Thus, the data represent a valuable reference for improving the storage quality of fermented milk and research for the future development...
