Transcript of Baby Food Industry (Trypsin)

The Use of Trypsin in the Baby Food Industry
The Biological Source of The Enzyme
How is enzyme used in it's industrial application?
Due to the enzymes ability to increase the rate of chemical reactions, trypsin is used to predigest food for babies. In addition, it's used in the production of hypoallergenic food, where proteases break down specific allergenic proteins into nonallergenic peptides. This helps decrease the risk of babies developing allergies. For example cow milk is made as an hypoallergenic food to prevent babies from having milk allergies.
How is the enzyme controlled or inactivated in it's industrial application ?
Trypsin is controlled through temperature change. Trypsin should be stored at very cold temperatures between −20°C and −80°C to prevent autolysis, which is the destruction of a cell through the action of it's own enzymes.
Trypsin's optimal conditions
Trypsin's most active at 37.1 °C with a PH of 7.5 to 8.5

What is Trypsin?
The source of trypsin is found in the digestive system of many vertebrates, although it's well known to be a pancreatic enzyme. It enables the digestion of protein eaten, as well as it controls the absorption of vitamin B-12 from the intestinal tract. The lack of trypsin causes people to experience malabsorption and suffer from deficiencies in essential nutrients, which may lead to having diseases or illnesses such as anemia or cystic fibrosis.
Trypsin is a digestive enzyme that is secreted by the pancreas in an inactive form called trypsinogen. It's role is to catalyze the hydrolysis of peptide bonds to break down proteins in the small intestine into smaller peptides to make them available for absorption into the blood stream. This is essential in protein absorption since proteins are generally too large to be absorbed through the lining of the small intestine.
