Product Description

Description
Glucoamylase FERZYME PG is made from non-genetic modified strains of Aspergillus niger using submerged fermentation, extraction and refining techniques. FERZYME PG 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.
FERZYME PG is a food grade enzyme designed for saccharification in brewing industry such as potable alcohol production and production of highly attenuated low carbohydrate beers and improved attenuation.
 
Benefits
Use of FERZYME PG greatly benefits the brewing process as follows:
  • Higher conversion rate from liquefied starch to glucose
  •  Considerably improves raw material utilization
  • Faster fermentation efficacy
  • Lower processing cost

Packaging
FERZYME PG is packaged in 25kg, 30kg food-grade plastic drums or 1125kg IBC totes.  Customized packaging is available upon request. 
 
Storage & Shelf-life 
  • This enzyme has been formulated for optimal stability.
  • Typical shelf-life is eighteen months if it is stored below 25°C (77°F) in its original packaging, sealed and unopened, protected from direct sunlight.
  • Prolonged storage and/or adverse conditions such as higher temperatures may lead to a  higher dosage requirement, therefore should be avoided. 
 
Safe Handling of Enzymes
Inhalation of enzyme dust and mists should be avoided. In case of contact with the skin or eyes,  promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. For detailed handling information, please  refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet.
