Your solutions for hydrolyzed yeast extract
Novozymes Alcalase® is particularly applicable for hydrolysis of yeast extracts. Alcalase® is an amylose-free broad-spectrum endo-protease with high activity from mildly acidic to alkaline pH ranges.
Novozymes Flavourzyme® is a unique enzyme combination of endo- and exo-peptidases providing deep hydrolysis of e.g. yeast extract to generate high-quality flavors. Used alone, it can hydrolyze protein to generate savory flavors from a variety of substrates. When more extensive hydrolysis is needed Flavourzyme® can be used in combination with Alcalase® to generate even more intense flavors.
Novozymes Protana® Prime is a unique exo-peptidase blend releasing free amino acids from proteins. Applied in high dosages in combination with Alcalase® an unsurpassed deep hydrolysis of proteins is obtained.
The full savory potential is captured when used together with Protana® UBoost which transforms glutamine with limited taste into umami tasting glutamic acid.
Novozymes Protana® UBoost is a cost-effective glutaminase which converts glutamine into glutamic acid. While glutamine has little taste, glutamic acid is a strong flavor enhancer. Together with smaller peptides glutamic acid constitute the natural umami flavor of protein hydrolysates.
The full savory potential is captured when used together with Protana® Prime and Alcalase® or Flavourzyme® which break proteins up into free amino acids and smaller peptides.
