In the acidic method, oligosaccharide branches are not completely broken down, and the presence of alpha- 1, 6 linkages in the polysaccharide branch prevents production of glucose with the highest DE value. In addition, the impurities formed during the production process reduce the degree of purity of the final product with the reduction in the temperature.
Use of enzymes is a modern solution for a more complete breakdown of polysaccharide branches in the shortest possible time. It also results in high stability of the finished product. Alpha-amylase is used in the liquefaction stage and glucoamylase and pullulanase in the saccharification stage
The advantages of the product:
