Glucoamylase 300K (farm & fuel)

An Enzyme Supplies high-strength glucoamylase for the starch, alcohol, & ethanol industries


Glucoamylase 300K is a highly efficient, concentrated glucoamylase produced by submerged fermentation of Aspergillus niger. The enzyme hydrolyses 1,4-α-glucosidic linkages in starch from the nonreducing end to produce glucose, & can also hydrolyse 1,6-α-glucosidic links. At the branch of a 1,6-α link, Glucoamylase 300K will hydrolyse 1,6 then 1,4 bonds. The enzyme therefore successively slices off glucose units of amylase from the non-reducing end to rapidly produce glucose.
Glucoamylase 300K can also be produced free of Transglucosidase activity. Transglucosidase when added to normal brewery wort, produces predominantly isomaltose, panose and small amounts of isomaltotriose. The isomaltooligosaccharides produced cannot undergo fermentation by brewer’s yeast, and the resulting reduction in fermentation decreases the level of alcohol produced. However, the presence of Transglucosidase activity can be beneficial for the production of low carbohydrate and super-attenuated beers, and the presence of this activity can also reduce the formation of acetic acid during high gravity brewing.

Typical Characteristics

Activity minimum 300,000 μ/ml (where 1μ/ml is defined as the amount of enzyme in 1ml enzyme solution to hydrolyze soluble starch to produce 1mg of glucose/ hour at pH 4.6 & 40°C) Appearance – brown liquid Bulk density 1.15g/ml


Glucoamylase 300K is available in 25Kg ‘non-toxic’ plastic barrels or 1 tonne IBC’s


To maintain optimum activity, Glucoamylase 300L 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 6 months. At temperatures below 5 deg C, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 1 year.


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


Glucoamylase 300K has an optimum pH range of 4.0-4.5 (effective range 3.0-5.5). The enzyme is effective over a temperature range from 40°C to 65°C, with an optimum performance at 60°C to 62°C. At temperatures above 65°C the activity of the enzyme decreases rapidly with rising temperature.

Application Scope

Glucoamylase 300K is used in the production of alcohol, distilled spirit, ethanol & widely used in the production of various kinds of glucose.

Our Expertise

We have greatly benefitted from working with Enzyme Supplies, and we recommend their thoroughly professional service to anyone seeking technical expertise and a reliable, reputable source of industrial enzyme products.”

We have been supplied by Enzyme Supplies for over 3 years and have found their material and service very satisfactory. On one occasion they helped to supply at very short notice when another supplier let us down which could have resulted in very serious disruption.

have been working with Enzyme Supplies over the last twelve months and am extremely grateful for their expert advice, consistent and reliable service and most importantly, the ability to meet the continuing demands of my business, particularly in the area of API sourcing.  They continue to assist me with this key function and are willing to provide additional services when needed which may arise from time to time. I highly recommend using Enzyme Supplies to future customers and appreciate their ongoing support for our business

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’.
