Alcalase® for animal protein extraction is a high quality and versatile endo-protease. It provides very extensive hydrolysis. It’s used in the first stage of the hydrolysis process to liquefy and break-down animal by-products. It is often combined with other proteases to add more value in a wide range of animal protein applications.
Alcalase® is effective in most animal protein applications. These include fish, meat and feather protein hydrolysates, gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen, pet food and extraction of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Alcalase® is also suited to extraction of protein from other sources such as yeast.
