Enzymes are proteins that are formed in the body and act as catalysts. They break materials down by increasing the rate of chemical reactions and biological processes. However, those chemical or biological processes do not change enzymes. Enzymes play a key role in lowering the activation energy for a reaction enhancing the rate of reaction. Comparing enzymes and catalysts, catalysts catalyze many biochemical reactions without any selectivity while enzymes are highly selective to a reaction. Enzymes do not affect the equilibrium of the reactions. However, enzymes are chemical-specific to their functions. Invertase is a yeast-derived enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of sucrose. This results in the production of fructose and glucose mixture referred to as inverted sugar syrup.
