Kiwifruit Extract Applications

KiwiEnzyme produces a food grade extract powder containing Actinidin, a proteolytic enzyme (which is a member of the protease family). Kiwifruit extract applications in health, nutrition and meat processing are now well documented.

What is a protease enzyme?

Put simply, proteolytic enzymes are responsible for breaking down protein molecules. These enzymes fragment long chain protein molecules into their component parts or amino acids. The process is called protein hydrolysis.

How are kiwifruit Actinidin extracts used?

  1. Formulating Health & Nutritional Supplements
  2. Meat tenderising and flavour enhancers
  3. Protein hydrolysis

Aid to Digestion

Our bodies break proteins down during digestion and thus, enzymes are essential to our well-being. Actinidin aids digestion by hydrolysing proteins in the gut, which are converted to amino acids for use by our cells.

Meat Tenderising

For the meat industry, the enzyme increases product value, significantly improves the consumer experience and provides processors a substantially better return.
