Food grade powder additive alpha-acetolactate decarboxylase for beer brewing
Alpha-Acetolactate Decarboxylase is produced by submerged fermentation of Bacillus subtilis followed by purification and formulation. It is widely used in food processing.
Diacetyl, the α-acetolactate oxidative decomposition product, is an intermediate along the synthesis of amino acids in yeast, especially of valine and isoleucine. This decomposition process is very slow in yeast. Alpha-Acetolactate Decarboxylase can speed up the transformation of α-acetolactate into acetoin efficiently, avoiding the formation of the diketone, an off flavor in beer, and thereby greatly reducing diacetyl level in beer and diacetyl reduction time. In this way beer maturation time is saved.
The product complies with GB1886.174.
Total viable count/(CFU/mL)
The recommended dosage is 5-500g/t DS. The dosage has to be optimized based on each application, the raw material specifications, product expectation and processing parameters. It is better to begin the test with the convenient volume.
Enzyme preparations are proteins that may induce sensitization and cause allergic type of symptoms in susceptible individuals.Prolonged contact may cause minor irritation for skin, eyes or nasal mucosa. Any direct contact with human body should be avoided.If irritation or allergic response for skin or eyes develops, please consult a doctor.
