High conversion Glucoamylase HGA-100 is made from controlled fermentation and extraction of selected strains of Aspergillus niger. HGA-100 can catalyze the release of glucose units from the non-reducing ends of soluble dextrins by hydrolyzing both linear (1,4-alpha-D) and branch (1,6-alpha -D) glucosidic linkages.
HGA-100 does not contain Glucosidase, thus enables its high conversion rate from starch to sugar.
For maximum activity, the optimal pH for HGA-100 is in the range of 4.0 to 4.5.
EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE
Effective temperature range is 40 to 65°C, optimum temperature is 58 to 62°C. Inactivation may achieve quickly at temperature above 65°C. The product is inactivated completely at 70°C.
Typical dosage of HGA-100 is at a level of 0.4 to 0.8kg/TDS. The exact dosage depends on the actual processing conditions such as raw materials, temperature, reaction time, pH and the desired results of the individual plant.
