Beta-Glucanase GC-500® is a liquid food grade beta-glucanase specifically designed for use in the brewing, potable alcohol, winery, and juice processing industries. Beta-Glucanase GC-500® is used for non-carbohydrate haze removal caused by β-glucans, improved mash filtration, and wort viscosity reduction.
Beta-Glucanase GC-500® is a food grade beta-glucanase which specifically breaks down β-glucans by hydrolyzing the beta-1,3 and beta-1,4 glycosidic linkages. Beta-Glucanase GC-500® also contains some hemicellulase activity and can effectively break down β-glucans found in the cell walls of plant-derived substrates.
Improves the filtration rate and centrifuge efficiency (reduces filter down time)
Increases the extract recovery and yield
Reduces stickiness of spent grains to mash filter
Achieves better clarity in finished products
