Recently, pectin has introduced as one of the food additives. The presence of pectin naturally or intentionally is pronounced regarding to know its technical characteristics depending on the application targeted. One of the industrially processor agents of pectin is pectic enzymes. These enzymes are not only effects on food industries but also can be used technically in other industries such as textile and so on. The aim of this overview is to study of pectin structure and different pectolytic enzymes from the viewpoint of both study and commercializing.
Keywords: pectin, pectolytic enzymes, pectin methyl esterase.
