Digestive Enzymes

Bioseutica's member company, Neova Technologies Inc., produces purified enzymes extracted from government-certified pork pancreas glands.  These enzymes are naturally occurring pancreatic proteins that play an important role in the digestion of food.  The two main enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin, are refined and blended to meet different functional requirements as determined in consultation with customers.  A third enzyme offered is phospholipase A2 (PA2). Neova Technologies Inc. is one of the world`s largest manufacturers of porcine derived enzymes and has been active in the pancreatic enzyme market for over fifteen years.  Products include trypsin/chymotrypsin preparations as well as phospholipase A2. Market sectors include food, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals.

Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are classified as serine proteases, with specific cleaving characteristics. Trypsin preferentially hydrolyzes bonds whose carboxyl groups are contributed by lysine (Lys) or arginine (Arg). Chymotrypsin hydrolyzes peptide bonds involving phenylalanine (Phe), tyrosine (Tyr) and tryptophan (Try). Phospholipase (PA2) is a standardized product, which cleaves the fatty acid at the second position in phospholipids. Pancreatic enzymes effectively hydrolyze a variety of proteins and lipids, using the same natural process as the human digestive system

These preparations are widely utilized in food processing:

  • as a baking enzyme to improve the workability of dough;
  • in the extraction of seasonings and flavourings from vegetable or animal proteins;
  • in the manufacture of sauces;
  • to control aroma formation in cheese and milk products;
  • to improve the texture of fish products;
  • to tenderize meat;
  • during cold stabilization of beer;
  • in the production of hypoallergenic food.
  • in the development of vaccines
PHOSPHOLIPASE A2
PHOSPHOLIPASE A2 (PA2) is an enzyme derived from porcine pancreas. It serves as a catalyst in the hydrolysis of the fatty acid in the second position of phospholipids/lecithin.
TRYPSIN 1:250
TRYPSIN is a pancreatic enzyme found in vertebrates where it exists in its inactive form, trypsinogen.
TRYPSIN I
TRYPSIN I is a purified trypsin enzyme preparation which meets the defined requirements of both the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopoeia (EP).
TRYPSIN IV
TRYPSIN IV is a refined trypsin preparation specifically designed as a low endotoxin material for cell culture applications which can be standardized to a desired trypsin activity.
TRYPSIN VI
TRYPSIN VI is an enzyme preparation containing both trypsin and chymotrypsin specifically designed for food and OTC pharmaceutical applications.
