Function of Enzyme of Koji

#1 Breaking Down Nutrients
Enzymes break down nutrients so they can be easily digested and absorbed. They create amino acids that produce umami, and aids in the tenderising of food.
#2 Aids Digestion
Amylases found in Koji breaks down starch into glucose, and proteases break down protein into amino acids. Foods are eaten after the nutrients have been partially broken down by the enzymes, so nutrients are easily digested and absorbed in the body.
#3 Vitamin Production
As the bacteria metabolises, it releases vitamins necessary for skin metabolism, such as vitamin B1, B2, B6, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, and inositol.
