As compared to fruit, bromelain concentration is high in stem and is thus a cheaply available source of bromelain Tochi et al. Other parts of pineapple are also investigated for the presence of bromelain Ketnawa et al. Extraction of bromelain from these parts is attractive not only from environmental point of view but also economically Novaes et al.


Bromelain can be easily extracted from the juice of pineapple by ultrafiltration Larocca et al. Extractjon marketable bromelain is mostly extracted from the stem of pineapple through centrifugation, ultrafiltration, lyophilization Corzo et al.

Once extracted, the crude mixture containing required enzyme is then exposed to numerous purification stages to eradicate impurities that may interfere with bromelain to hinder its application and reduce the specific activity of the enzyme Illanes Product purity is the key factor which may constitute a large proportion of the total enzyme production cost Lightfoot Several conventional isolation and purification techniques are now obsoleted because of their low purification potential Soares et al.

So the extraction and purification strategy Figure 1 designed should be selective for the desired product, cheap, high yielding and speedy Gupta et al. Due to increased interest of scientists toward bromelain, several new purification techniques have been employed for its extraction and purification Table no. Micelle is an aggregate of molecules possessing both polar and non-polar regions.

Reverse micelles are thermodynamically stable, minute surfactants that hold water in their interior surrounded by organic phase Andray et al.

Only protein of interest is entrapped in micelle Figure 2 whereas other impurities remain in organic phase Lee and Chong Reverse micellar system is an encouraging strategy for downstream processing.

It is ideal to extract biomolecules through diluted samples. Reverse micellar system possess higher sample loading capacity, are specific and easy to operate Chen et al.

RMS are also being used for the extraction and purification of bromelain from ananas stem and waste. There is also reported use of RMS for extraction of bromelain from pineapple where it yielded Researchers are implementing various modifications in RMS to upgrade the yield and purification fold.
