REPCO® ZYME 5000 is a fungal alpha amylase enzyme premix derived from Asperigillus oryzae. It is standardized for alpha amylase at a minimum 5000 SKB/gm.

Fungal alpha amylase enzyme is easily inactivated by heat of baking so more may be added as needed to obtain desired level of gas production during fermentation. Flour treated with REPCO® ZYME 5000 is used to supplement the natural diastatic activity of wheat flour to support fermentation without adding sugar. REPCO® ZYME 5000 also improves dough handling and extensibility.
