Science – Enzymes

Enzymes Make Life Work

Wherever there is life, there are enzymes. They are the digestive catalysts that speed up all reactions involving the transformation of energy and other nutrients.

There are many types of enzymes and all are specialized for specific chemical reactions. Everything that is coming into the animal’s body has a certain chemical shape. These shapes can’t be absorbed into the blood or consumed by the cells. Enzymes attach to these shapes, rearrange them into something more bioavailable, and send them on their way.

Enzymes can perform multiple jobs. For instance, fibrolytic enzymes are targeted to break down fiber.
Barley enzymes
Barley malt contains a tremendous amount of enzymes. When you germinate (malt) the barley seed, it sends out these enzymes that would normally utilize the seed’s storage pod to convert starches and proteins into a plant stem. By halting this germination process, the abundance of liberated enzymes are harnessed for use in SweetPro.

As an example, phytase is not added separately to SweetPro, but since it occurs naturally in the barley malt, it is still very prominent in the product. Prebiotic and enzymes are found in the blend additive, ProBiotein.
