Novozymes Enzymes

Novozymes - Catazyme® 25L

Novozymes has developed a new solution for enzymatic acidification of juices or wines.

Catazyme® 25L is unique because of its patented combination of glucose oxidase and catalase activity that acts on glucose present in juice and wine.

When using Catazyme 25L®, glucose is converted to gluconic acid, a mild acid that helps to balance the sweet/sour ratio in a beverage. The catalase simultaneously removes produced hydrogen peroxide, avoiding oxidation and potential off-flavors.

Benefits of Catazyme® 25L

• Significant amount of gluconic acid can be produced, up to 20 g/L has been demonstrated if enough glucose is present.
• In-situ conversion results in reduction of sweetness, e.g. glucose, balancing the sweet /sour ratio.
• Fast reaction within hours.
• Robustness - pH lowering effect of up to 0.4 pH decrease.
• No extra equipment cost; all necessary equipment already present.
• Sensorial properties e.g. sweetness balance, tartness, mouth feel and color.

Pectinix Ultra Tropical

Filter cleaning

Enzymes for membrane cleaning can be used to restore the flux rate in ultrafiltration (UF), microfiltration (MF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membranes that have been clogged with colloidal substances. The enzymes should be applied prior to chemical cleaning to break down clogged material, allowing more effective removal by detergents.

Pectinex Ultra Tropical features:
• Enzymes can solve challenges/clogging where detergents fail in cleaning
• Soft, natural cleaning and protection of the environment because less aggressive chemicals are used
• Extension of shelf life of membranes, which is more cost effective and leads to more sustainable approaches

Industry Wine Guide

Enzymes for wine production

Enzymes are natural protein compounds found throughout nature. Enzymes are an important part of the winemaking process as they assist with increasing extraction, improving yield, and speeding up the process. Pectinases, one of the main enzymes used in winemaking, break down the pectin in the grapes allowing for better tannin extraction and improving color intensity and stability.
