Lipase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fats (lipids). Lipases are a subclass of the esterases. Lipases perform essential roles in digestion, transport and processing of dietary lipids (e.g. triglycerides, fats, oils) in most, if not all, living organisms.
Types of lipase enzymes:
1.lipase for animal feed
2.lipase for detergent
3.lipase for textile
Lipase for animal feed:
Lipase Enzyme in Liquid and Powder Form. It is designed to break down Fats present in the Animal Feed. The composition of animal feed contains various fats which are hydrophobic. Lipase breaks these fats to soluble fatty acids which can be easily absorbed by the animal as a nutrient.
Lipase offers the following benefits Animal Feed Industry:
- Specific action on Lipids.
- Assists in the digestion process.
- Decreases viscosity of the feed.
- Improves uptake of nutrients.
Lipase for detergent industries:
Lipase is a new enzyme in the detergent industry. Its primary use is as new enzymes used in the detergent industry. Its unique properties decompose the clothing oil into diglyceride, monoglyceride and fatty acid and other water-soluble substances, which significantly improve the washing effect of washing powder, especially the impact of removing the macula. We use a variety of enzyme-containing detergents, the enzymes of which mainly include alkaline proteases and alkaline lipases. Alkaline proteases are used to break down proteinaceous stains such as perspiration and bloodstains. Alkaline lipase acts primarily to fatty acids and their esters, which is what we usually refer to as oils.
Lipase for textile industries:
Lipase used in bio-scouring in textile industries. Bio-scouring is a process of removal of protein, wax and oil by using of lipase enzyme.
