GENERAL ASPECTS OF THE ENZYMES
Enzymes act as catalysts and like an engine they allow to accelerate the biochemical reactions on which they act on a specific manner, but they do not have any kind of effect on the rest of the ingredients they come into contact with.
Enzymes are part of a sustainable environment. They act under mild conditions of pressure, temperature and pH. They are found in our body and in nature.
One of several possible ways of classifying enzymes can be based on the substrate they modify:
- Proteases that through hydrolysis split the bonds that make up the protein chains.
- Carbohydrases that split (hydrolyze) the bonds in starch, sugars, and carbohydrates.
- Cellulases and hemicellulases that split the bonds of cellulose and other related compounds.
- Lipases and Esterases. Lipases enzymes that hydrolyze fats and oils giving fatty acids and alcohols, and esterases that hydrolyze the ester bond.
- Other enzymes.
