Enzyme Development Corporation’s Lab Manager, Andrea Dreyfus, presented a poster at IFT discussing the differences between Ficin (a new food-grade biocatalyst, a botanical protease), papain, and bromelain, comparing the enzyme’s activity and stability over a range of temperatures and pH. Ficin, a natural non-GMO proteolytic biocatalyst from the latex of Ficus species (tropical fig tree), is approved for use in food and …

Botanical Proteases

Botanical Proteases – an option for “Gluten-Free” claims.

With the new FDA regulations on “gluten-free” claims, there is a new interest in enzymes that have not been derived from fermentation. To meet the need for this growing demand for non-Fermentation enzymes, EDC offers a number of botanical enzymes, including Papain, Bromelain, Ficin, and the protease from Thistle. These proteases are plant-based, non-GMO enzymes that have no wheat or …
