Quara® LowP releases more neutral oil. That's because its high activity on phospholipids means it hydrolyzes more of them. That allows you to increase your oil yield and your profitability. This robust and innovative PLA1  enzyme weakens the emulsifying properties of gums. That makes phosphorous removal easier.  With Quara® LowP you also reduce the need for acid and caustic soda in your refining process. That means a reduction in the formation of low value by-products like gums and soap.

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.
