Category: Animal Feed Enzymes
Pectinase is produced from Aspergillus sp by controlled
fermentation, isolation and ultra-filtration to give a produce which can be used for a wide range of applications.
Pectinase is widely used in the animal feed industry as a protease enzyme that helps in the availability of low-grade proteins, releasing readily digestible peptides and easily absorbed amino acids. Use of Pectinase increases the digestive capacity of animals and birds and also ensures availability of adequate nutrient.
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).
Pectinase has an optimum activity at pH 4.0 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 at 30 – 60oC.
Packing and Storage:
Pectinase is available in 25kg HDPE pack. The product should be stored under cool and dry conditions in an airtight container.
