Pectinase (polygalacturonase, pectolase) is a pectolytic enzyme for the hydrolysis (splitting) of plant polysaccharides (pectin substances). These substances are usually found in plants not in a free form, but in the form of a complicated complex, known as protopectin.
Pectin substances form a gel-like mass and hold the juice, preventing its separation. Especially it is difficult to obtain juices without pulp from raw materials with a high pectin content (plums, gooseberries, blackcurrants, quinces, etc.)
Pectinase is effectively used to increase juice yield and to improve filtration during extraction, as well as to clarify juices and wine materials.
