A bacterial alpha-amylase derived from a self-cloned strain of Bacillus licheniformis blended with Glycerine. Hitempase is a food-grade, heat-stable, starch-hydrolysing product derived from a genetically modified strain of Bacillus licheniformis. Hitempase is an endoamylase which hydrolyses internal -D-1,4 glucosidic bonds to reduce the viscosity of gelatinised starch, producing soluble dextrins and oligosaccharides. Its high thermal stability renders Hitempase ideal for continuous and batch liquefaction of starch or starch-containing materials.
The recommended dose rate is 0.2-0.35 g / kg of grain (dry weight basis) in the mash.
