Saccharification Enzymes

Saccharification – Unfermentable carbohydrates from starch are broken down to produce fermentable sugars.

DIAZYME® X4 – Glucoamylase

  • Increase alcohol production
  • Good for high corn mashes
  • Limits polymerization of glucose units which can occur in full saccharification
  • Use in conjunction with Diazyme FA or Alphalase AFP to optimize processing
  • Application: Add at temperatures below 70 °C (158°F) at saccharification for complete saccharification or in the fermenter. 

DIAZYME® SSF – Glucoamylase & protease

  • Improve yeast vitality for consistent fermentations
  • Increase fermentation rate
  • Increase alcohol yields
  • Recommended for Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation
  • Application: Add to cooling mash when temperature reaches 60 – 65°C (140 – 149°F) before pitching yeast.

DIAZYME® SSF2 – GlucoamylaseFungal α-amylase, glucoamylase, & protease

  • Faster initial alcohol production with increased alcohol yields from better starch hydrolysis
  • Protease activity provides nutrition for yeast for fast and complete fermentation
  • Obtain more fermentable sugars during fermentation
  • Recommended for Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation
  • Application: Add to cooling mash when temperature reaches 60 – 65°C (140 – 149°F) before pitching yeast.

DIAZYME® FA – Fungal α-amylase

  • Increase alcohol production
  • Use in conjunction with Diazyme X4 or Diazyme SSF to improve processing
  • Application: Add just before or at the beginning of fermentation in conjunction with Diazyme X4 or Diazyme SSF. 

DIAZYME® 480 – Glucoamylase & pullulanase

  • Obtain more fermentable carbohydrates from dextrins
  • Increase alcohol yields and fermentation rate
  • Less residual starch in distillers grain
  • Application: Add at temperatures below 70 °C (158°F) at saccharification for complete saccharification or in the fermenter. For processes using Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation, add directly to fermenter. For pre-saccharification, add to cooling mash or liquefied starch when temperature reaches 60 – 65°C (140 – 149°F).
