Candida rugosa lipase – A Versatile Enzyme for Hydrolysis and Esterification Reactions.
Take a look at our technical paper on how lipases from Candid rugosa can be used for the selective hydrolysis of fatty acids to produce flavours and play a key role in rearranging fatty acids in triglycerides through esterification and interesterification reactions to produce healthy oils, biodiesels and for synthesis of intermediates.
