Enzymes for saccharification

Boost dextrose levels and dry solids in saccharification


What is saccharification?

During starch refining, the liquefact must be converted – or saccharified – into a high-dextrose sweetener.  With Novozymes, you can lower your cost of conversion, boost dextrose levels and dry solids, and reduce energy costs.

How can enzymes help?

Saccharification should run smoothly with high dextrose yields and lower reversion rates. But things don’t always go smoothly.

The challenges can include things like fluctuating demand that can cause the time in saccharification to be uneven, making enzyme-dosing inefficient. Or reversion to isomaltose. Or the inability to run at higher dry substance and obtain your DX target.

Novozymes can help you achieve efficient saccharification and high dextrose targets with lower reversion rates and isomaltose.
