RSM was applied to optimize the production of inulinase (dependent variable) using yeast extract ([X.sub.1]) as the source of nitrogen and agave syrup ([X.sub.2]) as the carbon source (independent variables).

These strains are Gram-negative, rod shaped, nonmotile with 1.5-2.0 um long, and 0.9 [micro]m width, the biochemical tests indicated that the strain RCRI4 is capable to produce amylase, lipase, DNase, inulinase, pectinase, but is not capable to produce other hydrolytic enzymes.
In determining the total fructose content, fructans were hydrolyzed at 60 [degrees] C for 30 min by 12.5 U m[L.sup.-1] of the inulinase Novozyme SP 230 (Novo Industries, Copenhagen, Denmark) as described by Klaushofer and Wolfslehner (1983).
The process uses comminuted chicory roots or other plants, demineralizing the material and treating with an enzyme called inulinase to remove the small sugars.
Depolymerization of inulin involves the action of enzymes namely, inulinase. They can be divided into exo-inulinases and endo-inulinase [3].
