Distiller’s Alpha-Amylase Enzyme is used for converting gelatinized starches to sugars in fuits, grains and other starchy ingredients. The enzyme works by breaking down dextrins and other simple sugars before beginning a saccharification process for conversion.
Please note: This product is used in conjunction with Glucoamylase for full conversions. Gluco Amylase can be found here
