Some relatively low-cost supports were assessed for the immobilization of inulinase produced by the yeast strain Kluyveromyces marxianus var. bulgaricus. Crude enzyme inthe culture supernatant was immobilized on various solid supports: activated carbon, diatomite, hen egg shell, Amberlite, poroussilica and gelatin. The best performance was obtained in the gelatin-water support after treatment with glutaraldehyde as a crosslinkingreagent, which showed an immobilization yield of 82.60 % for inulinase specific activity.
