Amylase, Liquid

BAN® 480 LS

BAN® 480 LS is an alpha-amylase that rapidly hydrolyzes gelatinized starch, reducing its viscosity. It's suitable for use in maltose production as a processing aid to improve filtration rates and de-hazing of syrups. It can also be used to make high-DE maltodextrins.

Key Benefits Description Safe handling
  • Filtrate clarity

    This product can produce a clearer syrup post filtration.

  • Ease of inactivation

    To inactivate this product, you just need the right temperature and pH conditions. That makes it ideal for secondary applications where residual alpha-amylase activity is undesirable. These include maltodextrin production.

  • Viscosity Reduction

    This product breaks down dextrans present in raw sugar juices and syrups. That lowers viscosity and allows you to maintain plant capacities.

You can use BAN® 480 LS in several processes. It delivers viscosity reduction and helps resolve filtration problems. These include problems that appear in maltodextrin production. BAN® 480 LS also helps resolve post-saccharification filtration problems in maltose or dextrose syrup production.

This product contains enzymes. While enzymes are safe to use in consumer applications, they need correct handling in working environments to ensure workers’ safety.

Indeed, repeated inhalation of enzyme dust or aerosols resulting from improper handling may induce sensitization and may cause allergic type 1 reactions in sensitized individuals.
