Abstract: Pectin methylesterase (PME) was extracted from carrots and purified by affinity chromatography. The thermal high-pressure inactivation of the PME was investigated in a model system. Under these conditions, the (thermo) stable fraction is not inactivated and the isobaric-isothermal inactivation followed a fractional-conversion model. At lower pressures (< 300 MPa) and higher temperatures (> 50 degreesC), an antagonistic effect of pressure and heat was observed. A 2nd- and 3rd-degree polynomial model (derived from available thermodynamic model) was successfully used to describe the heat pressure dependence of the inactivation rate constants. From the purified carrot PME sample, the thermostable PME fraction was isolated. The thermal inactivation of this fraction followed first-order kinetics.
