Category: Animal Feed Enzymes
Lipase is an enzyme prepared by extracting the juice from pancreatic glands. The pancreatic juice is extracted from the glands and by precipitating the solvents or by lyophilizing the juice itself. The powder obtained is defatted by washing with ether to produce Lipase.
Lipase is widely used in the animal feed industry as a fat splitting lipase enzyme. Lipase is responsible for the absorption of ingested fats and for the mobilization of storage fats in animals. Fat can be used as energy source only after initial hydrolysis by lipases.
Lipase 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).
Lipase has an optimum activity at pH 6.5 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 30 – 60oC.
Packing and Storage:
Lipase is available in 25kgs HDPE pack. The product should be stored under cool and dry conditions in an airtight container.
