Pectinase: A Useful Tool in Fruit Processing Industries

  title={Pectinase: A Useful Tool in Fruit Processing Industries},
  author={Jyoti Singh Jadaun},
Over the past decade, fruit and vegetable juice market has rapidly grown and is expected to grow more in near future due to the changing life style, more travelling, easy adaptation to the western culture and increase in the health awareness, [1]. Good quality juice production is impossible without the use of enzymes. There is a tremendous increase in utilization of food processing enzymes such as pectinase in juice industries. Pectinase is the enzyme which is in use since ancient time and its…
