What is ENZYME MODIFIED EGG YOLK?

Egg yolk to which the enzymes PLA2 or MAXAPAL A2® has been added as an emulsifier. PLA2 is usually collected from pig pancreases and MAXPAL is produces through a chemical process for a vegitarian alternative made from fermentaion with aspergillus niger. In this case the emulsification of the egg yolk increases the shelf life of the product.


Where does ENZYME MODIFIED EGG YOLK come from?

Regular Chicken Eggs and...

PLA2s, also called Phospholipases A2, is found in the tissues of almost all mammals, but is traditionally harvested from pig pancreases. It is also one of the major irritants found in snake and insect bites.

MAXAPAL A2 is created in large vats of a specific strain of A. Niger (common mold that grows on fruit).


How is ENZYME MODIFIED EGG YOLK made?

Separate the yolk of an egg and then add the emulsifier PLA2 or MAXAPAL A2.

PLA2 are commonly found in mammalian tissues as well as insect and snake venom. Venom from both snakes and insects is largely composed of melittin, which is a stimulant of PLA2. Due to the increased presence and activity of PLA2 resulting from a snake or insect bite, arachidonic acid is released from the phospholipid membrane disproportionately. As a result, inflammation and pain occur at the site. There are also prokaryotic A2 phospholipases.

MAXAPAL® A2 is a liquid, purified phospholipase A2 enzyme (phosphatide-2-acyl-hydrolase E.C.3.1.1.4), produced by microbial fermentation of a selected strain of Aspergillus niger. MAXAPAL® A2 is Kosher and Halal certified and is the non-animal alternative to similar enzymes extracted from porcine pancreas.
