Category: Animal Feed Enzymes
Fungal Amylase enzyme is produced from Aspergillus sp by fermentation, isolation and ultrafiltration and is widely used in the animal feed industry as an alpha amylase enzyme that helps in the digestion of starch. It can readily hydrolyze starch molecules into smaller oligosaccharides and eventually into maltose and glucose.
Fungal Amylase increases digestive capacity and has optimum activity in an acidic environment, thus being effective in conditions encountered in the digestive tract.
Fungal Amylase 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).
Fungal Amylase has optimum activity at pH 5.0 but 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:
Fungal Amylase is available in 25 kg HDPE packs. The product should be stored under cool and dry conditions in an airtight container.
