Description Details

Saczyme® Pro 1.5X is an efficient glucoamylase that gives you low levels of residuals. It's suitable for use in no-jet cooking processes.

High ethanol yields

This product maximizes starch and dextrin conversion to sugars for
yeast fermentation to ethanol. The result is higher ethanol yields. 

Fast fermentation rates 

Faster ethanol production early in fermentation means you get more throughput from the same facility. It also helps reduce bacterial infection. That's because bacteria reproduce much more quickly than yeast and will consume sugar and reduce pH. By accelerating ethanol production, you can inhibit their reproduction. 

Low residual starch & sugar levels

High levels of residual starch and sugars negatively impact your ethanol yields. This product reduces residual levels for higher ethanol yields. 

Suited to no-jet-cooking processes

This product delivers aggressive hydrolysis and high viscosity reduction. That makes it suitable for operations that don't use jet cookers.   

Hydrolyzes unconverted starch

Engineering design limitations or a coarse grind may make your liquefaction process sub-optimal. That can result in unconverted starch entering your saccharification / fermentation process. This product converts that starch during fermentation to boost your ethanol yields. 
 
Effective on varying types and quality of raw materials 

This product delivers reliable performance on a range of raw materials, regardless of their quality. These include corn, wheat, rye, rice and cassava. 

Robust performance 

This highly thermo-stable product delivers robust performance under varied conditions. That gives you more flexibility in your operating parameters.

How glucoamylases work in distilling saccharification

Glucoamylases hydrolyze (1,4)- and (1,6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages at the non-reducing ends of polysaccharides. That process yields glucose and maltose, which are suitable for fermentation by yeast. 


Making beverage alcohol involves converting starch into fermentable sugars. Yeast then transforms these sugars into alcohol. Saccharification is the second enzymatic stage in the process, liquefaction being the first one. Saccharification breaks down the dextrins into simple sugars like glucose and maltose. The saccharification step is critical to the overall distiller's process. Effective saccharification ensures complete starch conversion to fermentable sugars. 

In liquefaction, distillers break starch down into soluble short-chain dextrins. After leaving the cooking line, the heat exchangers cool the mash down. Then distillers add a glucoamylase. 

During saccharification or simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) the glucoamylases target starch-containing substrates. They hydrolyze (1,4)- and (1,6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages at the non-reducing ends of polysaccharides. That breaks the dextrins down further, yielding glucose and maltose. 

After saccharification, yeast converts glucose and maltose into alcohol during the fermentation process.
