Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides from the shrimp shell waste (SSW) were isolated using different proteases. The orthogonal test results showed alcalase hydrolysates with ACE inhibitory activity of 67.07% under the optimal hydrolysis conditions of 60 °C hydrolysis temperature, pH = 9.5, 25 g L−1 substrate and 4000 U g−1 of enzyme, whereas neutral protease hydrolysates had an ACE inhibitory activity of 84.04% under the hydrolysis temperature of 50 °C at pH = 7.0 with 25 g L−1 of substrate and in the presence of 2000 U g−1 of enzyme. Neutral protease was more suitable for the production of ACE inhibitory peptides from SSW, where peptides with MW <5 kDa were recommended. The results of this study indicated that peptides obtained from SSW are as beneficial as antihypertension compounds in the functional food resources.
