Inulinase enzyme catalyzes 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 inulooligosaccharide, which are further utilized for different purposes.
Prime industrial use:
- Production of bioethanol,
- Production of single-cell protein
Fructose syrup production
