  • Publication number: 20200340922
    Abstract: A method for determining the degree of polymerization of a polymer is disclosed, the polymer being contained in a sample (2), the method comprising the following steps: a) illuminating the sample (2) using a laser beam (11) and acquiring (100) a Raman spectrum (S) representative of the polymer; b) identifying (110) a peak of interest (Pi) and determining (120) a position (vi) of the peak of interest in the Raman spectrum; c) on the basis of the position of the peak of interest, using a calibration function (ƒ) to determine a degree of polymerization (DP, DE) of the polymer, the calibration function expressing a variation in the position of the peak of interest as a function of the degree of polymerization of the polymer.

  • Publication number: 20200165588
    Abstract: The present invention concerns an improved method for extracting ?-amylases from a soluble fraction of a starch plant, said method comprising a step of clarification by microfiltration and a step of concentration and purification by ultrafiltration. This method is characterised in that it uses a protease during the microfiltration step, making it possible to greatly reduce the fouling of the membranes used, which increases the production time before washing. Simultaneously, perfectly clear permeates are obtained, which assists with the subsequent ultrafiltration step and makes it possible to improve the transmission of ?-amylase. Finally, the protease has no negative effect on the ?-amylase activity.

  • Patent number: 10501560
    Abstract: The invention relates to a starch hydrolysate having a Dextrose Equivalent DE of between 5 and 30 and a specific carbohydrate profile. In particular, the hydrolysate of the invention has improved retrogradation behaviour. The invention also relates to a method for the production of said starch hydrolysate.

  • Publication number: 20190233807
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for stabilising an aqueous solution of ?-amylase, in particular by the use of glycerol, potassium sorbate and sodium carbonate. Said cocktail of additives is particularly effective at maintaining the enzymatic activity of ?-amylase over time. Another aim of the present invention consists of using said cocktail for the specific function of maintaining the enzymatic activity of the ?-amylase. Another aim of the present invention is to provide an aqueous solution of ?-amylase containing the aforementioned cocktail. A final aim of the present invention consists of using said ?-amylase aqueous solution in bread-making, in malting, as a food additive, as a digestive agent, for sweetener production, in pharmacy and, finally, for maltose and maltose-enriched syrup production.
