BioConvert – ACDX (Xylanase Enzyme for mash viscosity reduction)


BioConvert – ACDXis a Xylan hydrolyzing Xylanase enzyme derived from a selected strain of fungal species. Xylans are polysaccharides composed of β-1, 4- linked Xylopyranose units. They are one of the major constituents of plant cell walls and account for more than 30 % of the dry weight of terrestrial plants. The enzyme falls into the category of endo- β-1, 4-xylanase which is of prime importance for hydrolysis of Xylan polymers in Cereal Grains and Lignocellulosic Biomass. The enzyme breaks Xylan to short chain xylo-oligosaccharides of varying lengths.

BioConvert – ACDXoffers the following benefits in Starch Industry:
Concentrated Xylanase / Hemicellulase complex.
Rapid viscosity reduction.
Better grain water retention at lower doses.
Process flexibility and robust performance.
Eco-friendly & Biodegradable.

The activity can be customized according to performance requirements or current use.

The optimal usage level of the enzyme in viscosity reduction depends on processing parameters such as type of Raw material, Processing time, pH, Temperature and the quality composition. A typical BioConvert – ACDX dosage rate for viscosity reduction during liquefaction of starch is 0.02 - 0.04 % w/w of the material and degrading Xylan in lignocellulosic biomass is 0.15 – 0.6 % w/w of the material.

It conforms to the quality specifications as recommended by JECFA / FCC for food enzymes.

It is available in 25 KG & 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.
