Inulinases are enzymes that mostly hydrolyze inulin, a polyfructan, but also levan and sucrose.
Inulinases can have either endo- or exo-action. Inulin is a dietary fiber(already present in plants) that has benefits which would improve gut health.
The former, endo-inulinaseendohydrolysis of 2,1-β-D-fructosidic linkages in inulin, resulting in the formation of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), used as prebiotics; then latter, exo-inulinase hydrolyzes terminal, non-reducing 2,1- and 2,6-linked β-D-fructofuranose residues in fructans, and are used in the production of ultra-high fructose syrups.
Inulinases release fructose and oligo fructose polymers from inulin, a β-(2-1) linked polymer that serves as a storage polymer
