Abstract

Inulinase activity produced by a mixed culture of Aspergillus niger and Kluyveromyces marxianus growing on Jerusalem artichoke powder was investigated. Inulinase produced by this mixed culture had a higher invertase-type activity than inulinase from respective monocultures. When hydrolysis was carried out at 50 degrees C with Jerusalem artichoke exctract (total sugar 16% w/v) at pH 5.0, 90% hydrolysis was achieved after 4 h with 5% v/v of crude cell free enzyme preparation.
