Boost your maltose concentration

What is maltose production?

Maltose syrups can be tailored for use in a wide variety of applications, including as a stabilizer or texturizer in confectionery, as a fermentation feedstock in alcoholic beverages, or as a building block for blends of high maltose and high dextrose or fructose syrups. 

During wet milling, converting liquefied starch into high-DP2 syrups requires using a combination of maltogenic amylase, beta amylase and pullulanases.  With Novozymes, you can reduce risk of infections and chemical costs.

Tailor-made maltose syrups for specific applications 

How can enzymes help?

Making maltose syrups is a process that can be challenged by infections, chemical costs to adjust pH and calcium, and polishing steps of the finished syrup (IX or carbon, etc). 

Novozymes’ range of enzymes lets you tailor-make your maltose syrup production in a consistent manner – from low- to very-high-maltose concentrations.

Novozymes supplies a unique, low-pH beta amylase, Secura®, that tolerates higher temperatures as well as lower pH, enabling you to optimize production parameters, reducing both the risk of bacterial infection and processing costs.

Depending on your requirements, Novozymes’ range of products gives you full control of the sugar spectrum and reduced viscosity.

Our solutions for maltose production

Novozymes Secura® tolerates higher temperatures as well as lower pH, reducing both the risk of bacterial infection and processing costs. It is also more stable during storage. 


  • Simpler operations and lower costs
  • Keep a lower pH all the way from liquefaction to saccharification
  • Allows higher saccharification temperature, reducing risk of infections and increasing maltose yields
  • Simpler, more consistent dosing

Fungamyl® and Maltogenase®

Used in combination with other Novozymes enzymes, Promozyme® increases yields of dextrose or maltose during saccharification by reducing the amount of branched oligosaccharides.

Novozymes BAN® reduces the viscosity of gelatinized starch. It is used in several processes in the starch industry often as a processing aid when filtration problems appear after a saccharification (in either maltose or dextrose syrup production), or when making maltodextrins.
