Amylase MT–3K (food grade)

An Enzyme Supplies medium temperature α-amylase for medium temperature starch conversion


Amylase MT-3K is a medium temperature α-amylase produced by submerged fermentation of Bacillus subtilis. The enzyme is an endo-amylase, hydrolyzing 1,4-α-glucosidic linkages in amylase & amylopectin at random, producing dextrins of different chain lengths & oligosaccharides. The enzyme works both on the amorphous & crystalline components of amylopectin, resulting in a rapid decrease in the viscosity of starch solutions.

Typical Characteristics

Activity minimum 3000 μ/ml (where 1μ/ml is defined as the amount of enzyme in 1ml enzyme solution to liquefy 1g of soluble starch / hour at pH 6.0 & 50°C)
Appearance – brown liquid
Bulk density 1.2g/ml


Amylase MT-3K is available in bulk (1000Kg IBC’s), and in 25Kg ‘non-toxic’ plastic barrels


To maintain optimum activity, Amylase MT-3K should be stored at moderate temperatures (below 25 deg C), in the original containers and with the lid closed. When stored at temperatures below 25 deg C, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 1 year. At temperatures below 10 deg C, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 2 years.


Inhalation of aerosols from liquid enzymes should be avoided. Open in a well-ventilated environment. In case of contact with skin/eyes, promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Clean any spillages with low-pressure water hoses, avoiding the formation of aerosols. For more detailed information please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product

Application Scope

Amylase MT-3K is widely used for liquefaction applications in the starch, alcohol, brewing, & ethanol industries. The enzyme is also an effective desizing agent for the textiles industry

Enzyme Supplies’ has been supplying us with a range of enzymes for over 3 years…consistently high quality…competitive… efficient…will continue to use Enzyme Supplies as it’s supplier of enzyme

We changed from one of your competitors and now purchase our enzymes from Enzyme Supplies. The improvement in lead time has been fantastic and your service is excellent. Any question has been answered promptly and with a deep understanding of the material you provide, this did not happen with our previous supplier. I have already told you that I intend our relationship will be a long term one’.
