PECTINASE ENZYMES

BioExtract – APEC (Pectinase Enzyme for Extraction and Processing)

DESCRIPTION:

BioExtract - APEC is a Pectinase Enzyme derived from a selected strain of fungal spp. It has been specifically developed for hydrolysis of Pectin which is a major intracellular component of various plant matter while facilitating clarification and viscosity reduction by de-pectinization.

APPLICATION:

BioExtract - APEC is a whole Pectinase Enzyme with various activities such as Poly Galacturonase, Pectin Methyl Esterase and Pectin Lyase. It breaks down Pectin present in the cell wall of various plant matter thus providing excellent yields in extraction related processing. It is also used for clarification and de-pectinization during processing.

Application of BioExtract - APECin your existing processing gives the following benefits:
Enhanced extraction of intracellular components.
Efficiently breaks the cell wall structure.
Increase in extraction capacity due to faster filtration rate.
Fast viscosity reduction.
