Pectinases are a class of enzymes which are able to split pectin. As an example, this occurs as a normal process in flowering plants. Pectinases are used commercially to isolate protoplasts that occur in plants.

Pectinases are used in the production of fruit juice, for plant-based coloring agents, and in the production of wine.
