Clarification of juice by thermolabile valencia pectinmethylesterase is accelerated by cations.


Pectinmethylesterase (PME) was isolated from Valencia orange pulp and added to reconstituted juice at 1.2 units/mL of juice in the presence or absence of cations at 4.2 or 16.7 mM. The percent transmittance (%T) of control juices with no added PME or cation did not clarify. The %T of juices with added PME and added cation was 45-55% by the second day… (More)
