Pancreatic Enzymes

Pancreatic Enzymes for Food, Nutraceuticals, and Pharmaceuticals

Neova Technologies Inc., a Bioseutica Group company, specializes in producing enzymes extracted from government-certified pork pancreas glands. These pancreatic enzymes, naturally occurring proteins, are essential for food digestion. The enzyme preparation includes two main enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin, blended with an approved excipient to meet various functional requirements. Neova Technologies also offers phospholipase A2 (PA2). As one of the world's largest manufacturers of porcine-derived enzymes, Neova Technologies has been a leader in the pancreatic enzyme market for over twenty-five years, supplying products for food, technical, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are serine proteases with specific cleaving characteristics. Trypsin hydrolyzes bonds with carboxyl groups from lysine (Lys) or arginine (Arg), while Chymotrypsin hydrolyzes peptide bonds involving phenylalanine (Phe), tyrosine (Tyr), and tryptophan (Try). Phospholipase A2 (PA2) is a standardized product that cleaves the fatty acid in the second position of phospholipids. These pancreatic enzymes effectively hydrolyze various proteins and lipids, mimicking the natural human digestive process.

Neova Technologies' enzyme preparations are widely used in:

  • Food processing
  • Dietary supplements
  • Infant formula
  • Pharmaceutical products


  • Manufacturing protein hydrolysates
  • Extracting seasonings and flavorings from vegetable or animal proteins
  • Producing sauces
  • Controlling aroma formation in cheese and milk products
  • Improving meat and fish product textures
  • Tenderizing meat
  • Cold stabilization of beer
  • Producing hypoallergenic food
  • Developing vaccines
  • Treating pancreatitis
  • Collagen extraction


Pancreatic enzymes product line:


AquaTryp™ is our ready-to-use gentle enzymatic cell detachment reagent. A non-mammalian, non-microbial enzyme mixture, AquaTryp™, can be readily incorporated into most routine cell culture protocols. With predominantly trypsin enzymatic activity, AquaTryp’s enzyme profile makes it an excellent alternative to mammalian and microbial trypsin for most applications.

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 is a pancreatic enzyme used extensively in tissue dissociation, cell harvesting, and microbiological media. Trypsin 1:250 is a trypsin preparation, derived from porcine pancreas, specifically designed as a low endotoxin material for cell culture applications.
TRYPSIN I is our highest purity, most concentrated trypsin preparation, meeting the requirements of both the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), and the European Pharmacopoeia (EP).
TRYPSIN IV is a trypsin preparation specifically designed as a low endotoxin material for cell culture applications which can be standardized to a desired trypsin activity.
TRYPSIN SE (Pancreatin)
TRYPSIN SE is a protease complex, containing trypsin (EC 3.4.2 1.4), chymotrypsin (EC, pancreatic elastase (EC and carboxypeptidase B (EC, obtained from porcine pancreas
TRYPSIN VI is an enzyme preparation containing both trypsin and chymotrypsin specifically designed for food and nutraceutical applications including infant and follow-on formulae or baby-food.
