Strive EX

Innovative multi-component glucoamylase with trehalase and fungal alpha-amylase for increased yield


Innovative Sustained Response multi-component glucoamylase molecule for robust dextrin and starch conversion, while providing yeast-friendly kinetics and potential for all-upfront application. It effectively hydrolyzes (1,4)-alpha-D-glucosidic bonds at the non-reducing ends of starch polysaccharides and (1,6)-alpha-D-glucosidic branches. Supplemented with a trehalase, it completely hydrolyzes trehalose into fermentable glucose for improved yield. The fungal α-amylase component breaks down amylose and amylopectin of starch to shorter chain dextrins and maltose for improved starch conversion. The product performance can be further enhanced by the addition of protease, and cellulase components.

Dosage Recommendation

Strive EX should be dosed at 0.025% – 0.032% weight enzyme/weight as is corn. The actual dose required will depend upon the conditions of your fermentation: time, yeast, pH, temperature and the level of solids.

Regulatory Status

  • ‍ISO 9001 registered company
  • Kosher certified
  • GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)

GM Status

This product is not a GMO. The enzyme product is manufactured by fermentation of microorganisms that are not present in the final product. The production organisms and the enzyme effectiveness is improved by means of modern technology.


The product is available in 1,100 KG totes or bulk tankers. Please contact your sales representative for more information.


Strive EX will meet the declared activity upon arrival at the plant.

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.
