Development of an immobilization method of L-arabinose isomerase for industrial production of tagatose

Abstract

Of the immobilization methods tested, alginate beads treated with glutaraldehyde gave the most stable and economic method for immobilizing l-arabinose isomerase for the industrial production of tagatose. l-Arabinose isomerase immobilized in a packed-bed reactor produced an average of 30 g tagatose l−1 day−1 from 100 g galactose l−1 for 8 days.
