Module description

This course will build on understanding on the mechanism and kinetics of food enzymes. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how to control the activity and the stability of food quality related enzymes during food preparation and processing. In addition, the potentials of using exogenous enzymes in food applications will be given in different case studies.

Topics

  1. Classification of food enzymes
  2. Mechanism and kinetics of enzyme activity and inactivation
  3. Potentials of using exogenous enzymes in food applications
  4. Controlling the activity and stability of food quality related enzymes during processing
