Glucoamylase

Glucoamylase

Category: ,

Glucoamylase is derived from Aspergillus sp. The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of dextrin to glucose. The enzyme hydrolyzes the 1, 4 and 1-6 linkages of dextrin to produce glucose.

Benefits:
The use of Glucoamylase increases digestive capacity. Glucoamylase has optimum activity in an acidic environment, thus being effective in conditions encountered in the digestive tract of humans.

Usage

Dosage:
Glucoamylase is used in combination with other enzymes to make digestive enzyme formulations.

Working Conditions:
Glucoamylase has optimum activity at pH 4.2-4.6 but is very effective over a pH range of 3.5 to 5.0. It has an optimum activity at a temperature of 58-65oC but is very effective between 30-70oC.

Packing and Storage:
Glucoamylase is available in 25 kg HDPE packs. The product should be stored under cool and dry conditions in an airtight container.
