Lipase catalyzed formation of flavour esters

Thirteen commercial lipase preparations were checked for their ability to catalyse the formation of flavour esters (isoamyl or geranyl acetate, propionate and butyrate) by either direct esterification or ester solvolysis in n-heptane. The formation of isoamyl or geranyl butyrates and propionates by direct esterification was catalyzed by the majority of the… CONTINUE READING
