The application of bioactive components in modern industries has increased dramatically. Consumers’ rising awareness of health and well-being has induced industries such as food, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals to develop products containing bioactive ingredients. The increased demand led to researching other sources for extracting and incorporating the bioactive substances. Ultrasonic enzymatic extraction has developed a highly effective approach for extracting bioactive compounds from plant sources. This novel methodology combines the advantages of ultrasonic waves with the specificity and selectivity of enzymes, providing a promising alternative to existing extraction methods. Although efficient in producing better yields, ultrasonic extraction has met certain limitations, which cause heat generation and high energy consumption. The ultrasonic process can generate heat, potentially leading to the degradation of heat-sensitive compounds during extraction. This review focuses on the properties of ultrasonic enzymatic extraction on bioactive compounds, including the effect of enzymes on ultrasonic extraction and its potential in industries. This study briefly describes the development of this integration method and the application of ultrasonic-assisted enzymatic extraction across sectors in various fields. In the future, more recognition should be given to ultrasonic-assisted enzymatic extraction to enhance production efficiency.
