Specialty acid cellulase enzyme that converts cellulose for fermentation

Safety Sheet | Data Sheet


XC-YB is a cellulase that hydrolyzes(1,4)-beta-D-glucosidic linkages in cellulose and other beta-D-glucans. It breaks fiber bonds to release more starch and corn oil. This product is not designed for fiber conversion applications and should be considered for general yield enhancement only.

Typical Characteristics

  • Activity: 112,500 CF-A
  • Appearance: Brown liquid
  • pH: 4.0–9.0
  • Bulk Density: 1.17–1.23 g/mL

Dosage Recommendation

XC-YB should be dosed at 0.010–0.013% weight enzyme / weight as is corn. The actual dose required will depend upon the conditions of your fermentation: time, initial pH and the level of solids.

Regulatory Status

  • ISO 9001 registered company
  • Kosher certified
  • GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)

GM Status

This product is not a GMO. The enzyme product is manufactured by fermentation of microorganisms that are not present in the final product. The production organisms and the enzyme effectiveness are improved by means of modern technology.


XC-YB is available in 1,100 KG totes.


XC-YB will meet the declared activity upon arrival at your plant.

Recommended storage: 0–10⁰C (32⁰–50⁰F). Packing must be kept intact, dry, and away from sunlight. Please follow the recommendations and use the product before the best before date to avoid theneed for a higher dosage.

Best before: The best-before date can be found in the COA or on the product label. The product gives optimal performance when stored as recommended and used prior to the best-before date.
