This product is produced by submerged fermentation of Aspergillus niger followed by purification and formulation. It belongs to the pectinase family and can break down esterified pectin.
Function and application
* Fruit and vegetable processing: Used as mashing enzyme to increase juice yield, reduce the viscosity of mash and juice to ease downstream processing; reduces viscosity of puree and avoid gelling problem during concentration.
* Plant extract: Disintegrates plant cell to liberate target component and smooth operation during extraction and purification, and improves stability of liquid plant extract preparations.
* Wine and cider: Improves juice and color yield and product shelf life stability.
Mechanism and product standard
Pectate lyase is capable of pectin depolymerization by eliminative cleavage of pectate at their non-reducing ends, yielding oligosaccharides with 4-deoxy-α-D-mann-4-enuronosyl groups.
Total viable count/(CFU/mL)
The recommended dosage is 0.05-0.2kg/t DS. The dosage has to be optimized based on each application, the raw material specifications, product expectation and processing parameters. It is better to begin the test with the convenient volume.
