Saccharification Enzymes

Gusmer Enterprises is proud to be the authorized distributor for DuPont™ Danisco®

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

DIAZYME® 480
A unique blend of glucoamylase and pullulanase.

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

DIAZYME® FA
Non-GM derived fungal alpha-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® SSF
Non-GM derived blend of glucoamylase and protease for Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation.

  • Improve yeast vitality for consistent fermentations
  • Increase fermentation rate
  •  Increase alcohol yields

DIAZYME® SSF2
Enhanced enzyme system with amylase, glucoamylase, and protease for Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation.

  • 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
    Application:  Add to cooling mash when temperature reaches 60 – 65 °C (140 – 149 °F) before pitching yeast.

DIAZYME® TGA MASH
Robust glucoamylase for saccharification.

  • Maximize starch conversion
  • Minimize residual carbohydrates
    Application:  Add directly to mash along with, or after grist at mashing in.

DIAZYME® X4
The Non-GM derived choice glucoamylase for complete saccharification.

  • 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.
