Biotechnological Applications in Food Technology

Beta-Galactosidases produced by microorganisms are being utilized in food technology for hydrolysis of lactose in milk and milk bio products. The catalyst has gained much consideration in perspective of lactose intolerance in human population and because of significance of milk in human eating routine. Beta Galactosidases hydrolyse Beta-galactopyranosides, that is, lactose, and shape a scope of transfer galactosylation items or galactooligosaccharides (GOS) fit for giving a few medical advantages as prebiotics.
