Acid Protease AP-1000S is produced from Aspergillus niger through submerged fermentation and extraction and refining process. It can catalyze the hydrolysis of proteins under acidic conditions, thus has found its wide application in the animal feed industry.
Use of AP-1000S offers the following benefits to animal feed industry:
Hydrolyze proteins in feeds and accelerate the degradation of proteins in the intestinal tract;
Supplement endogenous enzymes that are usually deficient in young animals, thus help the digestion of nutrients contained in feeds;
Destroy the cell walls of feed pellets and maximize the utilization of feed nutrients
Declared Enzyme: Acid Protease
Systemic Name: EC 188.8.131.52
Activity: 100,000 U/g (minimum)
Appearance: Pale brown powder
Effect of pH
AP-1000S can work at pH from 2.0 to 6.0, with its optimal pH from 2.5 to 3.5 (See Figure 1).
Effect of Temperature
AP-1000S can work at temperatures from 30 to 65℃, with its optimal temperature from 40 to 50℃ (See Figure 2).
AP-1000S can be used as feed additive. It can convert proteins contained in the feeds into peptides, thus help the digestion and absorption of proteins in animals.
In the feed compound enzyme, AP-1000S is usually added at a dosage level of 0.01∼0.05kg/ton.
In the production of protein feeds, AP-1000S is added to the sterilized and cooled mash, mixed well and fermented in the tank. Use of AP-1000S can increase the protein content by 4∼10%.
The recommended dosage of AP-1000S is 0.1∼0.2kg/ton of raw material.
AP-1000S is packaged in 20kg PP woven bags with inner plastic bags.
Customized packaging is available upon request.
Storage & Shelf-life
Avoid direct sunlight and rain during transportation.
The storage room should be kept clean, cool and dry, preferably with air-conditioner.
Typical shelf-life is six months if this product is stored below 25℃ in its original packaging,
sealed and unopened, protected from direct sunlight. The shelf-life will be longer if it is stored properly at 0∼10℃.
Safe Handling of Enzymes
Inhalation of enzyme dust and mists should be avoided. In case of contact with skins or eyes, promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. For detailed handling information, please refer to the Safety Data Sheet.
