What is Xylanase?
Did you know that your body doesn’t actually produce all of the enzymes required to digest the fiber you consume? Nope, it is actually beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract that produce xylana...Read More
What is Hemicellulase?
Hemicellulase is an enzyme that breaks down a specific form of cellulose called hemicellulose, which is a major component of plant cell walls. There are many types of hemicelluloses – pentosans, xy...Read More
What is Lactase?
Lactase is an enzyme that breaks down a dairy-based sugar called lactose into the simple sugars galactose and glucose. Although the body’s small intestines typically produce lactase to digest dairy...Read More
What is Peptidase?
Peptidase is an enzyme that breaks down proteins into amino acids. More specifically, peptidase breaks down peptides, which are chains of two or more amino acids, into single amino acids. When prot...Read More
