Food Enzymes catalyzes chemicals reactions in Food Products



Pepsin is the principal proteolytic enzyme of vertebrate gastric juice. Pepsin is a monomeric, two domain, mainly beta protein with a high percentage of acidic residues. Its inactive precursor form, pepsinogen, is produced in stomach mucosa.Pepsin has broad specificity with a preference for peptides containing linkages with aromatic or carboxylic L-amino acids. It preferentially cleaves C-terminal to Phe and Leu and to a lesser extent Glu linkages.It is one of three principal protein-degrading, or proteolytic, enzymes in the digestive system, the other two being chymotrypsin and trypsin.Pepsin is most efficient in cleaving peptide bonds between hydrophobic and preferably aromatic amino acids such as phenylalanine, tryptophan, and tyrosine.It is widely used for the dyspepsia caused by over taking proteinic foods and lack of stomach proteinase caused by digestive hypofunction in the recovering period. It also has effect on curing chronic of atrophic gastritis, gastric cancer and malignant anaemia.Pepsin and other proteolytic enzymes are used in the laboratory analysis of various proteins,and also used in the preparation of cheese and other proteincontaining foods.

Lactase is belongs to β-galactosidase family of enzymes.It is a glycoside hydrolase involved in the hydrolysis of the disaccharide lactose into constituent galactose and glucose monomers.It is essential for digestive hydrolysis of lactose in milk. Its deficiency causes lactose intolerance.

Maltase (EC is an enzyme that breaks down the disaccharide maltose.It is equivalent to alpha-glucosidase, but the term "maltase" emphasizes the disaccharide nature of the substrate from which glucose is cleaved, and "alpha-glucosidase" emphasizes the bond, whether the substrate is a disaccharide or polysaccharide.

Sucrase is the name given to a number of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of sucrose to fructose and glucose. Sucrase is secreted by the tips of the villi of the epithelium in the small intestine. Sucrose intolerance occurs when sucrase is not secreted in the small intestine. With sucrose intolerance, the result of consuming sucrose is excess gas production and often diarrhea and malabsorption.


CakeZyme™ is a revolutionary enzyme-based ingredient that helps cake manufacturers create products with the soft texture, good mouth feel, consistency and longer shelf life that consumers crave.


Bromelain can refer to one of two protease enzymes extracted from the plant family Bromeliaceae, or it can refer to a combination of those enzymes along with other compounds produced in an extract.It is effective for reducing swelling (inflammation), especially of the nose and sinuses, after surgery or injury.It may also be used for a variety of other effects that remain scientifically unconfirmed and not authorized by regulatory authorities like the Food and Drug Administration.Bromelain is excellent for use in dietary digestive aid supplements,effective in the hydrolysis of gluten complex in baking applications.

Cellulase( EC refers to a class of enzymes produced chiefly by fungi, bacteria, and protozoans that catalyze cellulolysis (break down of cellulose). Several different kinds of cellulases are known, which differ structurally and mechanistically.

Properties Suppliers

Peptidase is an enzyme that can break down a peptide into its component amino acids. It is a food grade proteolytic enzyme . It is developed to produce protein hydrolysates rich in amino acids.

Properties Suppliers

CereCalase is an exclusive blend of hemicellulase, beta-glucanase and phytase that is designed to synergistically disrupt the fibrous nature of plant cell walls and release trapped nutrients from plant materials.CereCalase is uniquely suited for use in human digestion, digestion supplements for pets, and agricultural feeds.

Properties Suppliers

Pancreatin or Pancrelipase is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by the exocrine cells of the pancreas. It is composed of amylase, lipase and protease. This mixture is used to treat conditions in which pancreatic secretions are deficient, such as surgical pancreatectomy, pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis.
