ingredient information
Amylase vegan
Amylases are enzymes which break down carbohydrates (e.g. starch and glycogen) into fermentable sugars. This function of alpha amylase is used widely in industry for the preparation of flour improvers and subsequently in flour milling and baking; also, to a lesser extent in starch hydrolysis and alcohol production. This ingredient can be derived from animals, but the manufacturer of this product has stated that it is not animal-derived.
