Abstract

Abstract: The present study was aimed to enhance the extraction of lycopene from tomato peel waste with cellulase mediated process. Cellulase was produced by cellulose degrading bacteria through submerged fermentation utilizing tomato peels agro wastes as substrate. Cellulolytic bacteria Bacillus cereus KR9 was optimized for pH, temperature, and suitable carbon and nitrogen sources. The data obtained indicate that Rice Straw was found as best substrate with high enzyme production (60.8 Uml-1). The yield obtained with cellulase mediated extraction lycopene from tomato peels was 12. 25 mg/100g of lycopene. Enzyme mediated lycopene was found to more effective in colouring both Bioplastic and Sugarcubes. Hence, B. cereus KR9 cellulase assisted lycopene proves to be a potential biocolourant. Further the strain B. cereus KR9 can be investigated for scale up processes and other suitable industrial applications.
