Biocatalysts Ltd Launch New Product for Casein Hydrolysis

Enzyme specialists, Biocatalysts Ltd, have launched a new enzyme Promod™ 517MDP (P517MDP) extending their range of Kosher and Halal certified enzymes specifically targeting the dairy protein market.

P517MDP is a highly efficient exopeptidase that achieves >40% degree of hydrolysis in casein protein. Hydrolysing casein with P517MDP breaks it down into its smaller component parts: peptides and amino acids which increases its solubility and improves its digestibility making the casein protein hydrolysate a more versatile ingredient that can be used in the production of foods for special medical purposes (FSMP*) including specialist infant and follow-on formulas.

Casein, like whey, is a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids required to support the healthy growth of human beings. The slower rate at which its amino acids are absorbed means that it can satiate hunger over a longer period and also reduce the effects of sarcopenia, natural muscle wastage, in elderly individuals. Casein’s amino acid composition makes it important for maintaining muscle strength, bolstering the immune system and promoting a healthy weight and metabolism.
