Chickpea hydrolysates have shown bioactivity towards type 2 diabetes by inhibiting dipeptidyl peptidase (DPPIV) activity. The objective was to compare the effect of adding different levels of an optimized bromelain hydrolysate from chickpea isolated protein on DPPIV inhibition capacity and physicochemical properties of maize tortilla. White and blue maize tortillas, with no added chickpea hydrolysates were compared with fortified tortillas at the levels of 5%, 10%, and 15% w/w. Changes in color (L* a* b*, hue angle, and ΔE), texture (hardness, cohesiveness, and puncture force), and moisture were tested. Soluble protein determination and SDS-PAGE electrophoresis were used to characterize the protein profiles, and LC-MS-MS was used to sequence the peptides. DPPIV inhibition was evaluated before and after simulated gastrointestinal digestion. Peptides in the hydrolysates had high hydrophobicity (7.97-27.05 kcal * mol-1) and pI (5.18-11.13). Molecular docking of peptides showed interaction with DPPIV with an energy...
