Invertase is a carbohydrate-digesting enzyme that splits sucrose (common table sugar) into its component parts, glucose and fructose. It is essential to the body’s ability to digest sugar.
Invertase is commonly derived from a beneficial strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and then purified to be used either by itself or as a part of a multi-enzyme formula. Combined with other carbohydrates, it enhances the overall digestion of starch, sugar and other carbohydrates.
Invertase has antioxidant properties and can be found in Natural Honey and asparagus tips.
