AMYL-LP Strong

Concentrated alpha-amylase for breaking down starch during slurry and liquefaction


AMYL-LP Strong is a concentrated formulation of alpha-amylase to effectively break down starch in slurry and liquefaction. The key enzyme activity is provided by endo-amylase that hydrolyzes (1,4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in starch polysaccharides. Effective activity at lower pH ranges allows for more flexible front-end operations while maintaining excellent starch conversion.

Typical Characteristics

  • Activity: 320000 AAB-D/g
  • Appearance: Light to Dark Brown liquid
  • pH: 4.0–9.0
  • Bulk density: 1.14– 1.18 g/mL

Dosage Recommendation

AMYL-LP Strong should be dosed at 0.011% – 0.014% weight enzyme / weight as is corn. The actual dose required will depend upon the conditions of your liquefaction: time, temperature, initial pH and the level of solids.

Regulatory Status

  • ‍ISO 9001 registered company
  • Kosher certified

Storage Conditions

Recommended storage: 0–25°C (32–77°F) Packaging must be kept intact, dry, and away from sunlight. Please follow the recommendations and use the product before the best before date to avoid the need for a higher dosage.

Best before: The best before date in the certificate of analysis or on the product label. The product gives optimal performance when stored as recommended and used prior to the best-before date.

Safety and Enzyme Handling

Enzymes are proteins. Inhalation of dust or aerosols may induce sensitization and may cause allergic reactions in sensitized individuals. Some enzymes may irritate the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes upon prolonged contact. See the Safety Data Sheet for further information regarding safe handling of the product and spills.


The product is produced by fermentation using a nonpathogenic, nontoxigenic microorganism known to be safe.

The product is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for the intended use as a processing aid in the production of fuel ethanol in plants that also produce distiller’s grains co-products (DDGS). The enzyme is nonfunctional in both the fuel ethanol and the DDGS. The product complies with the safety requirements of the US Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), including non-adulteration and suitability for use in animal feed.
