DEXTRANASE ENZYME

BioConvert – DXTR (Dextranase Enzyme for Sugar Industry)

DESCRIPTION:

BioConvert – DXTRis a Dextranase Enzyme produced by the controlled fermentation of a Non GMO Fungal Strain. It hydrolyses the alpha (1, 6) glucosidic bond contained in dextran to release either glucose or isomaltose (exodextranases) or isomalto-oligosaccharides (endodextranases).

APPLICATION:

BioConvert - DXTR is used in the Sugar Cane Industry. In sugar production dextrans are undesirable compounds increasing the viscosity of the flow and reducing industrial recovery, bringing about significant losses. The use of dextranase enzyme is the most efficient method for hydrolyzing the dextrans at sugar mills.

BioConvert – DXTRoffers the following benefits:
Modification in final molasses purity.
Increase in clarity of juice and final yield.
Increase in extraction capacity due to faster filtration rate.
Fast viscosity reduction.
