Key Benefits Description Safe handling
  • Higher oil yields

    By converting phospholipids into extra Diacylglycerol (DAG) oil, this product generates more oil. This process also reduces emulsification strength, which releases neutral oil from gums. The result an increase of between 1% and 2% in oil yields. The amount of extra oil generated depends on the P content of your crude oil.

  • Higher profitability

    By generating more oil and lower gum levels, this product brings extra revenue and boosts your profitability.

  • Higher protein content in meal

    By allowing you to capture more oil, this product reduces protein dilution. The result is that you can consistently meet your meal's minimum protein level requirements and cut your drying needs.

  • Easier gum separation

    This product breaks down phospholipids. The result is lower viscosity in gums. That makes your separation process easier and reduces your neutral oil losses.

  • Improved sustainability

    By generating more oil, this product allows you to get more with lower raw material and process inputs. That can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions from your process by up to 2%.

Phospholipids create a range of challenges for your refining process. They compromise the quality of your oil and cause oil waste in production. Quara® Boost consists of two phospholipase C molecules that hydrolyze around 75% of the phospholipids PC, PE and PI.  Quara® Boost can also deliver 2% more oil compared to traditional water degumming. It does this by converting phospholipids into Diacylglycerol (DAG) oil and releasing more neutral oils from gums. 

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.


Please follow the precautionary handling recommendations below:

  • Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray
  • Avoid contact with eyes, skin, or clothing
  • In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection
  • IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing
  • If experiencing respiratory symptoms: Call a POISON CENTER or a doctor
  • Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container
  • Dispose of contents/containers in accordance with local regulations
