A potential tannase producing fungus S3-07 was isolated from the tannin-rich soil sample and screened as better tannase producer with 38 ± 3 mm diameter of hydrolysis zone formation. It was identified as T. verruculosus (accession number KX863699) on the basis of the internal transcribed spacer ribosomal DNA (ITS-rDNA) sequence analysis. Tannase was produced with 8.22 ± 0.35 Unit per gram dry substrate (U/gds) activity in the unoptimized condition through solid state fermentation (SSF) using Babul (Acacia nilotica) bark as a solid substrate. Central composite design (CCD) was used to maximize the production and achieved 3.91 fold increments (32.18 ± 1.31 U/gds). Ammonium sulfate precipitation with 70% saturation and DEAE fractionation obtained 13.289 specific activity, 47.489% yield and 6.896 purification fold. SDS-PAGE and zymographic analysis showed two bands of tannase with ∼75 kDa and 58 kDa pH optima of tannase was measured at 8.00, whereas pH stability was recorded between 4.0 and 8.0. Tannase had temperature optima at 60 °C, however, stability was observed between 30 and 60 °C. In presence of ethanol, SDS, Mn2+ ions and gallic acid increased tannase activity, whereas ethyl acetate, tween 20, Ba2+ ion and urea inhibited maximum activity. Most of tannin reduction (93.27%) was measured in case of orange juice after 15 min incubation and 89.36% reduction in pomegranate juice after 30 min, whereas aonla juice was measured with 75.49% tannin reduction after 45 min incubation.
