So, what is cellulases?

Cellulases are a group of enzymes that break down cellulose, a complex carbohydrate found in plant cell walls. These enzymes are commonly used in food processing to enhance the texture and appearance of foods. They are also used in the production of biofuels, paper, and textiles. Cellulases work by breaking down the long chains of cellulose into smaller, more manageable components. This process not only improves the texture of foods, but also increases their nutritional value by making the nutrients more accessible to the body. Overall, cellulases play an important role in the production of many everyday products and contribute to sustainable manufacturing practices.
