Different Industrialized Products of Enzyme Preparations
1. Introduction of enzyme preparations
All life activities are maintained by the normal operation of metabolism, and various chemical reactions in the metabolism of organisms are carried out under the action of various enzymes. Enzymes are biocatalysts produced by living cells that catalyze specific biochemical reactions. It is extremely widespread and exists in animals, plants and microorganisms. The industrialized preparations of enzymes are called enzyme preparations. Enzyme preparations are biocatalytic substances extracted from organisms, supplemented by other ingredients, and processed through physical and chemical ways. Enzyme preparations are still catalytically active biological chemicals, which are mainly used to catalyze various chemical reactions in the production process. They have the characteristics of high catalytic efficiency, high specificity, mild operating conditions, reduced energy consumption, and reduced chemical pollution.
2. Industrialized products of enzyme preparations
The main enzyme preparation products include industrial enzymes and special enzymes.
Enzymes for industrial use include: enzymes for food and beverages, enzymes for washing, enzymes for ethanol production, enzymes for feed, etc.
Food and beverage enzymes mainly include amylase, glucoamylase, protease, glucose oxidase and lactase.
Enzymes for washing mainly include acid protease, neutral protease, alkaline protease and so on. Enzymes for ethanol production mainly include cellulase, amylase, and glucoamylase.
Feed enzymes mainly include phytase, protease, amylase, lipase and compound enzymes for feed.
Special enzymes mainly include: pharmaceutical enzymes, biological research enzymes, diagnostic enzymes, and biocatalysts.
The food industry is a major user of enzymes. At present, enzyme preparations have been widely used in baking, fruit and vegetable processing, dairy products, meat processing, and protein hydrolysis. At present, the variety of enzyme preparations is far from meeting the needs of the food industry. The enzyme preparation industry is constantly introducing new enzyme preparations, compound enzyme preparations, high-activity and high-purity special enzyme preparations to meet the growing needs of the food industry.
