So, what is aspergillopepsin?

Aspergillopepsin is a type of protease enzyme derived from the fungus Aspergillus. It is commonly used as a meat tenderizer in food processing, as it breaks down tough collagen fibers in meat to make it more palatable. Aspergillopepsin is also utilized in the production of cheese, where it helps to coagulate milk proteins and develop flavor. This enzyme can be derived naturally or produced through genetic engineering techniques, making it a versatile ingredient for use in various food applications. However, its usage may be limited due to potential allergenicity concerns.
