1 unit of Lipase equals to the amount of enzyme, which hydrolyzes substance to get 1μmol titratable fatty acid in 1 min at 40℃ and pH7.5.
The effect of lipase in the flour product is that it can repair the weak part of the structure of gluten network; improve the stability and holding capacity of the dough; make the bread core white and luster; make steamed bread white and shiny. It can comprehensively improve flour product quality if lipase work with food grade xylanase,fungalα-amylase and glucose oxidase.
In the leatherworking industry, The enzyme is specific to the fat in the leather. It can soften the raw materials uniformly under mild conditions; increase leather yield on the basis of reducing the amount of chemicals; reduce skin wrinkles with remarkable effect. The enzyme is often used in the process of degreasing and softening. Lipase usually work with alkaline protease, in this way, it can optimize the effect.
When lipase added in the feed, it can release the short chain fatty acids; improve the utilization of raw materials; improved feed flavor.
In the papermaking industry, lipase can be used in the process of mechanical pulping and deinking agent for waster paper. In the process of pulping, lipase can remove triglycerides in pulp; it can improve the efficiency of the deinking as deinking agent for waster paper.
