Lipase is an enzyme, which helps in the hydrolysis of fats and reduces the formation of glycerol and fatty acids in all living beings. It plays a vital role in the process of digestion by transporting and processing the ester bonds in triglycerides. In addition, it helps in the keeping of pancreatic enzymes to an optimum level. Health disorders such as bloating, indigestion and abdominal discomfort are caused by the consumption of high carbohydrate and fatty food items. Lipases help in the prevention of diabetes, cholesterol, obesity and high triglycerides.

Read report Overview-

Lipases are generally produced with the help of microbial sources such as fungi, yeast and bacteria. Bacteria and fungi lipases are preferred the most in the enzymes industry. Microbial lipases can be more effective than lipases that are obtained from animals and plants because of its variety in high yield, ease of genetic modification and catalytic activities.

Lipase is one of the largest growing markets in the enzymes market due to its health and industrial advantages. In food and non food industries, lipases are used as shelf life enhancers, flavorants, texturants and cleaning agents. Lipases also find huge application in animal feeds, where it is used in improving the health of livestock. In addition, lipases are used for medical and diagnostic use. Blood test with the help of lipase can help detect acute pancreatitis and other disorders in the pancreas of human body. Lipases also assist patients undergoing pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT), where it helps in the breakdown of fats into lipids.
