Why do industrial processes use immobilised enzymes
Since they are enzymes that can easily be separated out of a mixture or reactions easily
1 of 5
What is lactase
Lactase s an enzyme that breaks down lactose sugar, it can be immobilised in alignated beads before used to produce lactose free milk.
2 of 5
What is Pectinase
Pectinase is an enzyme used in fruit juice extraction it separates down pectin causing this out to release its juices
3 of 5
How are immobilised enzymes extracted
Immobilised enzymes Can attach to insoluble material e.g. fibres or encapsulated in aliginated beans and removed
4 of 5
Uses of surace and how is it made
Invertase (sucrose) is produced by cultivating yeast in large fermenters, sucrose found in beet is converted into fructose and glucose using invertase. These are much sweeter then normal sugar hence manufactures can save money since less is needed
