Enzymes have many uses, and there not just in the body. Here are a few uses;
Removing `stickies' from recycled paper
The textile industry
Food and Drink
These shall be explored in greater detail later on.
We have been using enzymes for a long time to improve the products that we use.…read more

Stickies are bound with ESTER
BONDS and the use of
ESTERASE enzymes is very
good for removing them. The
Removal of `stickies'
esterase's break down the
stickies into smaller
compounds, making them more
water soluble. Making them
removable from the actual

Enzymes have been used in detergents for the past 40 years.
Protease is the most used enzymes used in
detergents as they remove proteins like,
blood, egg, grass and human sweat, all of
which finds their way onto your clothes
at some point.
These Proteins are glue like substances
which stick strongly onto the texture and
fabric making them difficult to remove
with water alone.
These proteases do something called
HYDROLISATION , where they break
down the organic proteins into smaller
AMINO ACIDS which are then more
WATER SOLUBLE. And can be removed.…read more
