Optimization of Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Manihot Esculenta Root Starch by Immobilized-Amylase Using Response Surface Methodology

Abstract

Enzymatic hydrolysis of starch from natural sources finds potential application in commercial production of alcoholic beverage and bioethanol. In this study the effect of starch concentration, temperature, time and enzyme concentration were studied and optimized for hydrolysis of cassava (Manihot esculenta) starch powder (of mesh 80/120) into glucose syrup… (More)
