Microbial lipases play a significant role in the hydrolysis of fats in milk, altering the fatty acid chain length, enhancing cheese flavor, and facilitating the formation of soft cheese. Recent advancements include the utilization of individual microbial lipases or combinations for producing high-quality cheese. Furthermore, lipases sourced from microbes are commonly employed to enhance the flavor of rice, improve the aroma of apple wine, and modify soybean milk. Additionally, lipases are utilized in bio-lipolysis processes to reduce fat levels in meat, resulting in leaner meat products.

In the processing of black tea, lipases play a vital role in initiating the hydrolytic breakdown of membrane lipids, thereby initiating the synthesis of distinctive volatile compounds that contribute to its unique flavor profile. The quality of black tea relies on the dehydration and enzymatic fermentation of tea leaves. Recent studies have explored the application of fungal lipases sourced from Rhizomucor miehei to enhance the aroma of black tea. These lipases have been found to increase the level of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) by reducing the overall lipid content.

Enhancing the quality of wool involves the removal of surface fatty acids using anhydrous alkaline lipase, thereby reducing cracks in denim during abrasion processes. Researchers worldwide, particularly those in the textile industry, are increasingly interested in utilizing microbial lipases for modifying synthetic fiber surfaces and de-sizing cotton fabrics. This application often involves the use of lipases individually or in combination with other enzymes like proteases or xylanases.

Lipases with active properties are predominantly employed in cosmetics for surface cleansing, anti-cellulite treatments, and enhancing overall body slimming, as well as for removing dirt and small flakes of dead skin. Moreover, lipases are utilized in other cosmetic applications such as nasal cleansing, hair care, and beauty masks. Proper preparation of lipases is essential to ensure their effectiveness as active ingredients in cosmetic formulations or as biocatalysts in chemical synthesis.
