Invertase enzyme is also known as beta-fructofuranosidase, saccharase, glucosucrase, invertin, fructosylinvertin and others. This enzyme is widely found in plants and microorganisms and helps in metabolism regulation along with development and defence systems. Invertase enzyme is mostly isolated from baking yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Invertase enzyme catalyses the hydrolysis of sucrose into glucose and fructose. Most common use of invertase enzyme is invert sugar.
