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 SDS for further information regarding safe handling of the product and spills.


The product is produced by fermentation using a nonpathogenic, nontoxigenic microorganism known to be safe. The product is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for the intended use as a processing aid in the production of fuel ethanol in plants that also produce distiller’s grains co products (DDGS). The enzyme is nonfunctional in both the fuel ethanol and the DDGS. The product complies with the safety requirements of the US Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), including non-adulteration and suitability for use in animal feed.

Technical service
