Inulinase enzyme catalyses the breakdown of Inulin (a prebiotic) which is a polysaccharide called fructan. Inulin is a chain of fructose molecules, and when inulinase hydrolyses it then fructose molecules are released along with glucose and inulin oligosaccharide, which are further utilized for different purposes.

Functional properties:

  • pH: 5.0 - 6.0

  • Temperature: 55°C

Prime industrial use:

  •  Production of bioethanol,

  •  Production of single cell protein

  •  Fructose syrup production
