Papain, also known as papaya proteinase, is a cysteine protease (EC
18.104.22.168) enzyme present in papaya (Carica papaya) and mountain
papaya (Vasconcellea cundinamarcensis). Papain is usually produced
as a crude, dried material by collecting the latex from the fruit
of papaya tree. A purification step is used to remove contaminating
substances through a government-registered process, and than ultra
purification and concentrated by refined spray.
Our ultra refined papain powder was produced by tapping the latex
from the fruit of Carica papaya. The latex under goes various steps
of filtration, micro filtration, ultrafiltration and polishing
filtration. It is finally spray dried into a free flowing white
color powder. Our papain enzyme is mainly used for the baking,
brewery, and protein hydrolysis. etc.
This product was produced by Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, which fermented in submerged medium.
- Food grade, GRAS, high security;
- High activity 100,000 U-600,000 U/g;

【DEFINITION OF ENZYME ACTITIY】
Unit definition: One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 micro moles of
N-alpha-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester (BAEE) per minute at pH6.0
at 30 oC.
【PACKAGE AND STORAGE】
Package: 25 kg/bag or 25 kg/drum for solid product.
Storage: we recommend to store the product under the environment
with temperature <25oC, humidity <50%, and its better the temperature within 4oC-10oC.We recommended you use up the enzymes in 5 months under <25oC conditions, and 10 month under 4oC-10oC conditions.
Hydrolyze protein from food’s giant molecules into peptide or amino
acid through enzymic reaction.
Applied for hydrolyzing animal and plant’s protein, making
tenderizer, hydrolyzing placenta and soybean, making cracker
swelling agent, noodle stabilizer, beer and beverage clarifier,
premium oral medicine, soy sauce, and wine starter.
It can effectively convert protein, greatly improve food’s
nutrition value, and lower cost; it is also beneficial for body
digestion and absorption.
Used for feeds additives to explore protein source;
It helps with absorption, improves feeds utilizatin rate, saves
cost, and aids animal digestion and growth.
It can be added into feeds for pig, cow, sheep, chicken, duck,
goose, fish and shrimp;
