Enzymes that break down proteins.
Enzymes that digest proteins.
Proteases are enzymes that split protein. They break up amino acid chains and thus divide proteins into smaller units. In wheat doughs they cause softening. For certain types of product (e.g. biscuits and crackers) this is desirable and necessary to prevent the dough portions from shrinking after shaping and during baking.
enzymes capable of splitting proteins into smaller molecules (polypeptides).
enzymes which break down proteins. An example is bromelain, found in raw pineapple. Some proteases have been found to stimulate the immune system.
