Bromelain powder is white to light brownish yellow amorphous powder. Soluble in water, the aqueous solution is colorless to light yellow, sometimes with milky white light, insoluble in ethanol, chloroform and ether. The main principle of action is to hydrolyze peptides into low molecular weight peptides.
Product Name: Bromelain
Latin name: Serenoa repens (bartram) small
Part used: fresh apple waste
Appearance: yellow powder
Specification: Enzymes and microbial preparations
The production method is obtained from pineapple (Ananas comoslgs and A.bracteatus) fruits and stems (mainly using their outer skin) through extraction, salting out (or precipitation with acetone or ethanol), separation and drying.
Take fresh and clean pineapple peels, thorns, cores and other leftovers that can produce more than 45% juice, squeeze , and filter out the fruit debris. Add 0.025-0.05% benzoic acid to the filtrate and 5% kaolin for adsorption. After adjusting the pH of the kaolin adsorbate to 6.7-7.0 with saturated sodium carbonate solution, add 5% sodium chloride, stir and press filter. adjusted filtrate to pH 4.8-5.1 with hydrochloric acid, ammonium sulfate is added, Keep still to precipitate, and the precipitate is dried under reduced pressure to obtain bromelain. , the yield is 0.054-0.103% calculated based on the pineapple scraps.
