Biological pretreatment technology is applied to the extraction of natural products by the action of microorganisms or biological enzymes. Under appropriate conditions, the cell walls of natural resources are decomposed, which promotes the release of natural products into the extraction medium. Therefore, the efficiency of extraction and the activity of natural products are improved. Biological pretreatment technology includes microbial fermentation technology and biological enzyme assisted technology. This paper reviews the mechanism and application of two biological pretreatment techniques, aiming at providing reference for the development and utilization of natural products.

Key words: biological pretreatment, natural products, extraction
