We investigated the relationship between structure and in vitro peptic digestibility of heated and unheated β-lactoglobulin. Surprisingly, the native protein was digested in two distinct phases, which we hypothesise is due to the binding of an inhibitory peptide to the active site of pepsin, followed by a pH-gated transition that releases the inhibitory peptide.
