Alpha-amylase active at 195°F for superior survivability


Solubilize more starch and optimize yield with ourlatest line of alpha amylases with enhancedthermostability. The key enzyme activity in AMYL XTis provided by a thermostable endo-amylase thathydrolyzes (1,4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages instarch polysaccharides. Highly effective at operatingtemperatures even up to 200°F, AMYL XT expandsthe possibilities of process optimization to reachyour production goals.
