BioPro – APEC (Pectinase Enzyme for Fruit Processing)
BioPro - APEC is a Pectinse Enzyme derived from a selected strain of Aspergillus spp. It has been specifically developed for extraction and clarification of juices such as Apple, Pear, Plum, Mango, Pomegranate etc. It increases juice yield in mash treatment of Apple, Pear, Mango, Pineapple, Grape & Citrus fruit processing while facilitating clarification and viscosity reduction.
BioPro - APECis a whole Pectinase Enzyme with various activities such as Poly Galacturonase, Pectin Methyl Esterase and Pectin Lyase. It breaks down the cell wall of fruits thus providing excellent yields in fruit processing. It is also used for Fruit and Vegetable Juice clarification (de-pectinization).
Application of BioPro - APEC in mash treatment and juice clarification gives the following benefits:
Rapid extraction of juice with decreased pressure build up.
Increase in free run juice and total yield.
Increase in extraction capacity due to faster filtration rate.
Fast viscosity reduction.
|Operative pH range||3.5 - 5.5|
|Operative Temperature range||30°C - 55°C|
|Solubility||Soluble in water|
The activity can be customized according to performance requirements or current use.
The initial recommended dosage is 50 – 80 gm per ton of fruit mash. The optimum dosage needs to be standardized on basis of trials only.
It conforms to the quality specifications as recommended by JECFA / FCC for food enzymes.
It is available in 50 KG HDPE Drums.
Cool & dry conditions are recommended. Extended storage or adverse conditions may lead to higher dosage requirement.
It can be stored in closed container up to six months at 25°C.
Enzyme preparation belongs to protein, which may induce sensitization and or cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Prolonged contact may cause minor irritation for skin, eyes or mucous membrane of nose, so any direct contact with the human body should be avoided. If irritation or allergic response for skin or eyes develops, consult a doctor. MSDS is available on request.
As each country has its own specific food regulations, the user is requested to ensure that the enzymatic preparation complies with the applicable legislation.
