- Converts Starch into simpler sugars.
- High activity enzyme.
Amylase is a digestive enzyme that acts on starch in food, breaking it down into smaller carbohydrate molecules. It hydrolyzes alpha bonds of large, alpha-linked polysaccharide, such as starch and glycogen, yielding glucose and maltose.
Alpha-amylase is the major form of amylase found in humans and other mammals. It is also present in seeds containing starch as a food reserve and is secreted by many fungi.
Some of the industrial applications of Amylase enzyme are:
- 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.
