Are Microbial Enzyme Produced and Labeled?
Microbial enzymes are manufactured by growing the microbial cells
under specialized conditions so that these cells produce their maximal
amount of active enzymes. It is important to control environmental
conditions during productions so that a high percentage of these
active catalysts are preserved intact.
After the microbial cells have finished growing and producing their
enzymes, they may be inactivated and harvested along with
the enzymes, or the material may be process
in variuos ways in order to reach several stages
of purificatory of the enzymes. Where other concerns, like
solubility or spray ability of the final enzyme containing
product enter, the use of a semi-purified soluble or extracted, soluble
products are desirable.
Depending upon the products' degree of processing and selectivity of
enzymes contained, the products are listed as follows in the ingredients
Dried _________________ Fermentation Extract
Dried _________________ Fermentation Soluble
Dried _________________ Fermentation Product
Liquid ________________ Fermentation Product
