KiwiEnzyme – Actinidin Proteolytic Enzyme Manufacturer

The abundant supply of New Zealand Kiwifruit produced under a well-regulated horticultural environment provides an excellent source of Actinidin, meeting the requirements of world’s best practice in food safety. Being a natural enzyme extracted from a cultivated fruit, New Zealand-produced Actinidin offers a choice where there are objections to the use of recombinant gene technologies, often used in the production of microbial enzymes.

KiwiEnzyme produce food grade Actinidin products, extracted from New Zealand kiwifruit, which can be used for similar applications as papain and bromolein. The proprietary process for producing KiwiEnzyme kiwifruit extracts ensures a highly purified product free of seed and skin by-products. This is important as seed oil can contaminate the end product.
