Enzymes are natural proteins that act as biological catalysts.
Catalysts accelerate chemical reactions. The molecules upon which enzymes may act are called substrates, and the enzyme converts the substrates into different molecules known as products.
Enzymes play an amazingly vital role in business and are essential to the assembly of a lot of industrial products.
Perhaps the foremost obvious use for enzymes is the production of cheese, bread and alcohol. In these ancient applications, the enzymes are a part of microorganism machinery like bacterium or yeast. Enzymes are generally isolated from microorganisms, animal, or plant sources.
There are many industrial uses of enzymes across different industries such as the production of Food, Animal Feed, Pharmaceutical products, Detergents, Textiles Biofuels and Others.
Enzymes are secreted by all animals as part of the process of feed digestion. The stomach, small intestine, and pancreas all secrete a wide range of enzymes to digest carbohydrates (major source of energy), lipids (also a good source of energy), proteins (amino acids), and mineral complexes.
Enzymes chop down large compounds (such as starch, for example) into smaller pieces and eventually into component building blocks (in the case of starch, being glucose – a simple sugar). These simple compounds are then absorbed to be used by the animal for maintenance and production. Basically, the nutrients can't be absorbed without the enzyme's digestion process.
Biofeed's digestibility and performance program offer the Fullzyme® range of multiple and single enzyme products that provide the most cost-effective solutions to your feed formulations.
