Lecitase Ultra is an enzymatic Lipase preparation used in the degumming of vegetable oil. In vegetable oil refining it is necessary to remove impurities that affect the taste, smell, visual appearance, and storage stability of the oil. One important class of impurities is phosphatides, also called "gums". Enzymatic degumming is an efficient way of removing these gum impurities.
• Higher yields: Virtually no loss of oil to gums, Close to zero formation of soaps, No hydrolysis of the oil
• Simple process: Works with crude oil as well as water-degummed oil
• Cost-efficient: No wastewater and soapstock formation, Low consumption of water and bleaching earth, Reduced oil losses in gums
