Papain is an enzyme which is found naturally in unripe papayas
,This enzyme has a number of interesting uses, and it appears in a
variety of settings. People have been taking advantage of its
properties for centuries in Latin America, and additional uses have
been discovered in the modern era with research on the enzyme and
The oldest historic use of papain is as a meat tenderizer. The
enzyme helps to break down the tough bands between fibers in muscle
tissue, making tough meats fall apart during the cooking process.
Wrapping foods in leaves may be a stereotypical activity in
fictionalizations of tropical life, but it has a sound basis in
science, as green leaves can contain papain, which will soften the
meat as it cooks while preserving moisture and preventing burning.
Historically, people harvested this enzyme by slashing the skin of
unripe papayas and collecting the resulting sticky, latex-like sap
which collected. People could also cook with upripe papayas,
relying on the green papaya to break up in the cooking process and
release the enzyme, or certain leaves could be added to a recipe to
soften the meat.

The Health Benefits of Papain
1. Boosts Digestion
One of the key areas in which papain serves the body is in the
realm of its protein-digestive properties. The University of
Michigan supports its use as an enzymatic support for the
intestines, stomach and the pancreas.
2. Skin and Wound Care
Due to papain’s beneficial capacities, it is currently being
studied for topical applications on burns, irritations, and wounds.
It has also been used for ulcers and bedsores. Traditional cultures
in Hawaii and Tahiti made poultices out of the skins of papaya, as
this part of the fruit is particularly concentrated in papain. They
applied it to the skin to heal wounds, burns, rashes and bug
3. Resistant to Fungus
Studies show that the enzyme papain is also resistant to fungus. A
2010 report from the African Journal of Agricultural Research found
that extracts from Carica papaya (papain) could statistically
reduce the fungal pathogen causing pawpaw fruit rot.
4. Immune System Support
According to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, papain may act
as an immune support system for cancer treatment, as proteolytic
enzymes such as papain help to modulate leukocytes in the immune
5. Redness Resistant
Studies confirm that the papain enzyme has powerful resistance to
redness and may help reduce joint and prostate irritation. One
study from the University of Maryland Medical Center, shows that
papain was effective in helping the body reduce the swelling
associated with prostatitis.
Papain holds compounds that may aid in protecting the body from
cellular damage caused by free Radicals. One study published in the
Journal of Dairy Science found that papain can offer a potential
alternative to chemical additives for increased survival of
probiotic bacteria in yogurt due to its oxidation properties.
Similarly, it is also a powerful agent commonly used in food
preservation, as it reduces bacterial infestations and spoilage due
(1). Applied in food field, it is usually used as food additive;
(2). Applied in health product field, which can be made into clad
sheet (digestive enzyme) and
(3). Applied in cosmetic field, as a kind of raw material, it can
mix a natural cosmetics.
