Lecitase® Ultra improves your yields and profitability by releasing more neutral oil and free fatty acids (FFA) from gums. With Lecitase® Ultra you can cut chemical use. You can also reduce the formation of low value by-products such as gums and soap. Lecitase® Ultra is simple to put in place; it only needs treatment tanks, a separator and three hours' incubation. 

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.
