HEMICELLULASE ENZYMES

BioPro – ACDX (Hemicellulase Enzyme for Fruit and Vegetable Processing)

DESCRIPTION:

BioPro – ACDX is a Hemicellulase / Xylanase enzyme complex derived from a selected strain of fungal species. It has been developed to breakdown the Xylan, Arabinan and other Hemicellulolytic components in cellulosic materials. Its high level of Xylanase / Hemicellulase activities enables it to break down non-starch polysaccharides.

APPLICATION:

BioPro – ACDXis an optimized formulation of Hemicellulase / Xylanase Enzyme. It breaks down the cell wall of fruits thus providing excellent yields in fruit processing. It is also used for processing of vegetables and viscosity reduction.

Application of BioPro – ACDX in mash treatment and juice clarification gives the following benefits:
Rapid extraction of juice with decreased pressure build up.
Efficiently breaks the cell wall structure.
Increase in extraction capacity due to faster filtration rate.
Fast viscosity reduction.
