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