Lipase LP-2000 is produced from selected strains of Aspergillus niger through submerged fermentation, extraction and refining process. Its high activity and conversion rate enables LP-2000 not only hydrolyze fat to produce mono- or diglycerides and free fatty acids, but also catalyze ester synthesis and transesterification reactions. Fatty acids can act assubstrates for the endogenous lipoxygenase contained in the dough, bleach the colored materials in the dough.
Lipase LP-2000 is widely used in the production of flour treatment agents. It is typically used in compounding with fungal alpha- amylase, glucose oxidase and xylanase to achieve superior effects.
■ Reduces dough viscosity, gets better elasticity and handling properties
■ Enlarges loaf volume, ensures desirable texture and good taste of bread; reduces the volatilization of water in bread crust and helps to extend shelf life
■ Improves the surface smoothness and whiteness of noodles, enables noodles taste smooth with good elasticity; greatly reduces the amount of chemical additives to extend the shelf life of noodles
■ Improves the internal structures of steamed bread, enables a smooth surface and good taste, promotes the fermentation and re-steaming performance of steamed bread

This product is packaged in 25kg cardboard drums or kraft paper bags. Customized packaging is available upon request.
This enzyme has been formulated for optimal stability. Typical shelf-life is six months provided it is stored below 25°C in its original packaging, sealed and unopened, protected from the sunlight. Its shelf-life will be eighteen months if it is stored properly at 0∼10°C. Prolonged storage and/or adverse conditions such as higher temperatures may lead to a higher dosage requirement.
SAFETY & ENZYME HANDLING
Inhalation of enzyme dust and mists should be avoided. In case of contact with skins or eyes, promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. For detailed handling information, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet.
