Malt diastase is a carbohydrolytic enzyme useful for digestive support and general nutrition support. Breaks down maltose (two sugars) into two single sugars of glucose in a pH range of 4-9. •
Malt diastase is characterized by the ability to break down amylose and other polysaccharides. The enzyme works with amylase and glucoamylase to digest carbohydrate rich foods such as grains as well as malt, maltose, and sugars.
Malt diastase may be produced by the cells lining the small intestine.
