Invertase

Invertase

An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose into glucose and fructose. Also called saccharase, sucrase. Invertase is a yeast derived enzyme. Invertase splits sucrose into glucose and fructose. Invertase is mainly used when fructose is present due to it being sweeter and it not crystallizing as easy. A digestive aid that breaks down milk sugars.
