The enzyme alpha amylase is used by the bioethanol industry during the liquefaction stage to hydrolyze starches found in corn from long chains to shorter chains known as dextrins. The ZyloZyme™ AA is a highly active, non-GMO, alpha-amylase produced from Bacillus subtilis for use in the production of ethanol by fermentation.
For ethanol plants interested in the flexibility to optimize its production with a stand-alone and cost-effective Alpha-amylase, ZyloZyme™ AA is a specialized enzyme allowing plants to fine tune the amount used to break down starch, reduce viscosity and improve production output.
- High liquefaction temperature stability
- Generates high dextrose equivalents
- Reduces viscosity
