Nearly 80% of American beer is treated with papain, which digests the precipitable protein fragments and then the beer remains clear on cooling. Papain is also used for de-gumming natural silk. But most of the papain imported in the U.S. is used for meat-tenderizers, chewing gums and to extract the oil from tuna liver. It has milk-clotting (like rennet) and protein digesting properties. Used to clean silk and wool before dying, and to remove hair from hides during tanning It is also used in the manufacture of rubber.
