Strive MAX

Glucoamylase blended with trehalase to convert unfermentable trehalose to glucose

Safety Sheet | Data Sheet


Innovative Sustained Response multi-component glucoamylase molecule for robust dextrin and starch conversion, while providing yeast-friendly kinetics and potential for all-upfront application. It effectively hydrolyzes (1,4)-alpha-D-glucosidic bonds at the non-reducing ends of starch polysaccharides and (1,6)-alpha-D-glucosidic branches. Supplemented with a trehalase, it completely hydrolyzes trehalose into fermentable glucose for improved yield. The product performance can be further enhanced by the addition of protease, fungal alpha-amylase and cellulase components.

Typical Characteristics

  • Activity: 320,000-340,000 GAF-C

Strive MAX will meet the declared activity upon arrival at the plant.

Recommended storage: 0–25°C (32–77°F) Packaging must be kept intact, dry, and away from sunlight. Please follow the recommendations and use the product before the best before date to avoid the need for a higher dosage.

Best before: The best before date in the certificate of analysis or on the product label. The product gives optimal performance when stored as recommended and used prior to the best-before date.

Safety and Enzyme Handling

Enzymes are proteins. Inhalation of dust or aerosols may induce sensitization and may cause allergic reactions in sensitized individuals. Some enzymes may irritate the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes upon prolonged contact. See the Safety Data Sheet for further information regarding safe handling of the product and spills.
