Beta-glucanase is a thermostable enzyme, which has both beta 1 – 3 and beta 1 – 4 endo-glucanase activities.
Beta-glucanase digests high molecular weight beta glucans in grain and cereal based feeds and can be used in the treatment of endosperm cell walls that contain about 70% beta glucans.
Addition of Beta-glucanase to grain based feed offers solutions to many problems associated with beta glucans.
Beta-glucanase is in the range of 10- 100 g/ ton of feed. (Variation in dosage depends on whether the enzyme is being used independently or in combination with other enzymes to make feed formulations).
Beta-glucanase has an optimum activity at pH 5.0 but it is very effective over a pH range of 3.0 to 8.0. It has an optimum activity at a temperature of 40oC but is very effective between 35-60oC.
Packing and Storage:
Beta-glucanase is available in 25kgs HDPE packs. The product should be stored under cool and dry conditions in air tight containers.
