Beta Glucanase is a water dispersible extract of Trichoderma sp. that includes high concentrations of beta glucanase (gumase), and moderate levels of cellulase and xylanase activities.
Beta Glucanase helps break down beta-linked glucose polymers often associated with grains, such as barley, oats and wheat, and other products, including soybean meal and locust bean gum. This digestive action is broadly classified as a gumase activity. The other enzymes catalyze the breakdown of complex carbohydrates other than beta glucans. Hemi-cellulase activity attacks plant walk components. The presence of soluble calcium has a stabilizing effect on most enzymes of this type.
Beta Glucanase is particularly useful in industrial and agricultural processing applications due to its high degree of stability. This enzyme’s resistance to denaturation by higher than moderate temperature and pH extremes makes it particularly durable. It hydrolizes beta D-glucan components, bypassing branch points which often serve as blocking points to other exo-acting enzymes. In addition, cellulase and xylanase in the product are particularly useful due to its activity upon a broad range of Cellulosic substrates including wheat and barley.
