    I understand that pectinase and cellulase can increase the yield of apple juice by breaking down the cell wall. But how? Cell wall is already permeable to water right?

    Also, why don't we need to break down the cell membrane as well, like the experiment releasing the pigment from beetroot cell?

    Thanks in advance.
