Lactase is derived from Aspergillus sp. lactose (4-O-β-Dgalactopyranosyl-D-glucose) and produces β-D-galactose and α-Dglucose.
The use of Lactase increases digestive capacity. Lactase has optimum activity in an acidic environment, thus being effective in conditions encountered in the digestive tract of humans.
Lactase is used in combination with other enzymes to make digestive enzyme formulations.
Lactase has optimum activity at pH 3.0 to 5.0. It has an optimum activity at a temperature of 35-50oC.
