Enzyme Combinations with Fungal Proteases:


ENZOBAKE®
A special blend of proteases and amylases from a non-GMO strain of Aspergillus oryzae. It is a powder preparation that can be added to the sponge or dough side to improve fermentation and to relax the dough when using strong flours.

Application: Baking- In the production of high-quality bread, a certain amount of diastase and protease is necessary. The fungal amylase in the enzyme produces a softer bread crumb, deeper crust color, a greater volume, and improved texture, and grain. The fungal protease in this product decreases the dough-mixing time, and produces increased volume and improvement in bread symmetry, grain, and texture, as well as improvement in flavor. Both of these enzymes produce a bread with better keeping qualities and delay the onset of bread staleness.

Activity assays: Hemoglobin Units on Tyrosine basis (HUT) and a Modified SKB method (Sandstedt, Kneen, and Blish, Cereal Chemistry 16:172, 1939)
