Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Protease in the Food Industries

The demand for protease has been witnessed significant growth in recent years as a brewing enzyme. Proteases are used in brewing for many benefits and the most important two are digestion of protein for clarification and facilitation of malting. Its other functionalities include improving the fermentation and chilling and storage qualities of the brewed drink. It also increases the degree of solubility of the proteins and accordingly lowers the viscosity of beer, thus developing a good condition for yeast growth by satisfying the availability of free amino nitrogen which is necessary for yeast growth. During mashing, protease softens the kernel layer by hydrolyzing the cell wall protein leading to the exposure of the starch to the mashing enzymes and accordingly better mashing and wort fermentability.
