What is Alpha Amylase ?
Alpha-Amylase is made from Bacillus subtilis,through fermentation and extraction method. This product can hydrolyze starch into dextrin of different length and other low molecular sugar,glucose,and altose,decrease the viscosity of starch paste.
Low-temperature α-amylase (AAL) is produced by submerged fermentation of Bacillus subtilis followed by purification and formulation. The product is not as heat-stable as thermostable α-amylase, bringing the benefit of easy inactivation.
The enzyme is widely used in starch related industry where degradation of starch is necessary, such as starch sugar processing(glucose, maltose, dextrin, fructose, oligosaccharide), alcohol fermentation, brewing, monosodium glutamate fermentation, organic acid production, textile, papermaking and others.
