Alpha-amylase is an enzyme that hydrolyses alpha bonds of large, alpha-linked polysaccharides, such as starch and glycogen, yielding glucose and maltose. It is the major form of amylase found in humans and other mammals.
Amylases are used in alcohol, food, fermentation, detergent, textile, paper and pharma industries. It is widely used in alcohol production in the liquefaction process to convert starch into glucose & fructose concentrate. While, 90% of enzymatic detergents contain amylase enzymes as it helps in removing food stains.
- Starch is hydrolyzed into smaller oligossaccharides by α-amylase, wich is one of the most important commercial enzyme processes.
- Amylase hydrolyse the starch and converts starch into fructose and glucose.
- Amylase is widely used in detergent industry because of ability to remove tough stains and making the detergent environmentally safe.
- Amylase is extensively used in food industry such as baking, brewing, preparation of digestive aids, production of cakes.
- Amylases Enzyme are used in textile industry for desizing process.
