Dairy Related Enzymes

These enzymes are used in milk related applications. These include the production of low/no lactose milk, enzyme modified cheese, and cheese production.



LACTASES

ENZECO® FUNGAL LACTASE
An acid optimum beta-D-galactoside galactohydrolase derived from Aspergillus oryzae. Generally used in dry mixes containing lactose or in lactase type tablets or capsules.  The activity of the enzyme is expressed in FCC Lactase units/gram.  Galactose has a strong inhibitory effect on this enzymes activity.

ENZECO® LACTASE NL
A neutral liquid lactase preparation derived from the dairy yeast Kluyveromyces that catalyzes the conversion of lactose to its component sugars (glucose and galactose).  Generally used for the production of no/low lactose milk.


LIPASES

ENZECO® MICROBIAL LIPASE CONCENTRATE
A powder microbial lipase derived from a select strain of A. niger.  Product can be measured on the LU or FIPU Assay.  Maximum activity is 145,000 LU/g or 25 FIPU/g.

ENZECO® ESTERASE/LIPASE
A triacylglycerol lipase derived from non-genetically modified strain of Mucor javonicus. Optimum pH 7.0 – range of 5.0 to 8.0.  The enzyme hydrolyzes (breaks) the acylester bonds in triacylglycerols (esters of fatty acids and glycerol); yielding mono- and diglycerides, glycerol, and free fatty acids.

ENZECO® LIPASE RO 20
A unique lipase derived from Rhizopus oryzae. The enzyme produces significant levels of short chain fatty acids such as C8.  The action on longer chain fatty acids is not as aggressive as the lipase from A. niger or pancreatic lipase.

ENZECO® LIPASE CONCENTRATE
A microbial lipase derived from Candida cylindracea (aka candida rugosa).  It is an aggressive lipase that can hydrolyze 90%+ triglycerides to fatty acids.  In this respect it is superior to pancreatic lipase, and it does not contain protease, amylase or cellulose.


PROTEASES

ENZECO® FUNGAL PROTEASE
A highly concentrated food grade fungal proteolytic enzyme with some alpha amylase activity. It is derived from A. oryzae and is available as a powder at different activity levels up to 1,000,000 HUT/g.

ENZECO® FUNGAL PROTEASE 180
A fungal protease preparation containing approximately 180,000 HUT/g of fungal protease and very high levels of amylase (as measured by the SKB)

ENZECO® FUNGAL PROTEASE 400
A fungal protease preparation from A. oryzae that contains proteases with an acid pH optimum as well as an alkaline pH optimum.  It contains moderate amounts of debittering enzymes as well has endo-action proteases for rapid hydrolysis of the protein.

ENZECO® FUNGAL ACID PROTEASE
Derived from A. niger, this protease has a pH optimum of 2.5 – 3.5.  Its low pH optimum has proven useful in protein hydrolysis as a kosher/halal alternate to pepsin.

ENZECO® DPP (dipeptidyl aminopeptidase)
A protease enzyme preparation derived from A. oryzae and containing high levels of dipeptidyl-aminopeptidase.  Primary used in flavor modification and protein hydrolysis.

ENZECO® PROTEASE FNP
A fungal neutral protease preparation derived from A. oryzae that has optimum activity from pH 5-7 and contains the highest level of aminopeptidase activity and carboxypeptidase.

ENZECO® PEPTIDASE AO-30

An enzyme derived from A. oryzae  that has debittering side activities.

ENZECO® NEUTRAL BACTERIAL PROTEASE 160B
This is a neutral protease derived from B. subtilis that has optimum activity from pH 5.5-8 and contains no/very low amylase side activity.

CYNZIME®
A new milk clotting enzyme derived from Cynera cardunculus is now approved for use in the USA and in Canada.  This enzyme is a true vegetable derived rennet alternative.  Primary use is clotting milk from sheep and goat for cheese.
