Compared with the traditional extraction process, the enzymatic extraction of curcumin from turmeric can increase the yield by 8.1%. The extraction process conditions were: enzymatic hydrolysis temperature 50℃, pH 4.5, time 120 min, and enzyme concentration 0.35 mg/ml. Taking the HPLC method as the determination method and the extraction amount of curcumin as the investigation index, the orthogonal test method was used to optimize the extraction process. times, 40 min each time.
