Your solutions for hydrolyzed plant proteins
Novozymes Alcalase® is used for broad variety of applications, including hydrolysates from dairy, fish and meat, and plant proteins. Alcalase® is a broad-spectrum protease with high activity from mildly acidic to alkaline pH ranges. Well-established applications include yeast extract, extraction of gelatin or heparin, whey and plant protein hydrolysates, and conversion of animal co-products for pet food and animal feed.
Used concurrently with Protana® Prime a degree of hydrolysis higher than ever seen before can be obtained.
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 Protana® range is ideal for industrial, large scale production of high-quality, natural flavor enhancers from substrates such as soy bean meal, pea protein and wheat gluten*.
The full savory potential is captured when used together with Protana® UBoost which transforms glutamine with limited taste into umami tasting glutamic acid. The efficiency of Protana® Prime and the affordability of Protana® UBoost bring natural plant-based flavor enhancers (eHVP) within reach for cost neutral and label friendly exchange of e.g. acids hydrolyzed proteins (aHVP) and yeast extracts.
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® which break proteins up into free amino acids and smaller peptides. The Protana® range is ideal for industrial, large scale production of high-quality, natural flavor enhancers from substrates such as soy bean meal and wheat gluten*.
Novozymes Flavourzyme® is a unique enzyme able to provide a deep hydrolysis of plant and animal proteins to generate high-quality flavor. Used alone, it can hydrolyze protein to generate savory flavors from a variety of substrates. When more extensive hydrolysis is needed to solubilize a substrate, Flavourzyme® can be used in combination with Alcalase® to generate even more intense flavors. At lower dosages, Flavourzyme® can also be applied to reduce bitterness in hydrolysates produced from Alcalase® and Neutrase®.
Flavourzyme® 1000L is a wild-type blend of endo-and exo-peptidases which can be used as an alternative to Protana® Prime/Alcalase® in production of eHVP which must comply with certain labelling requirements (Organic, Ohne Gentechnic ets.).
