Supreme Extra

Glucoamylase, fungal α-amylase, and de-branching GA blended product

Description

Supreme Extra is a multi-component glucoamylase and fungal α-amylase that hydrolyzes (1, 4)- and (1.6)- alpha-D-glucosidic linkages at the non-reducing ends of polysaccharide. The product also contains a de-branching glucoamylase which breaks down the starch into linear polymers for more efficient glucoamylase activity and prevents formation of resistant limit dextrins at branching points. The fungal α-amylase portion breaks down amylose and amylopectin of starch to shorter chain dextrins and maltose. The Glucoamylase portion’s application is to yield monomeric glucose molecules that can be fermented by yeast into biofuels of interest such as ethanol.

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 SDS for further information regarding safe handling of the product and spills.
