Kiwi Fruit Extracts

Bulk Actinidin Proteolytic Enzyme Kiwi Fruit Extract (Actinidain)

kiwifruit-2-kiwi-enzymesKiwienzyme.com produce commercial grade Actinidin products, extracted from New Zealand kiwifruit, which can be used for similar applications as papain and bromolein.

These applications include:

  • Meat tenderising - controlled breakdown of tendonous proteins while maintaining textural quality
  • Protein/Meat Hydrolysis
  • Nutritional Supplements
  • Dietary Fibre

Our Actinidin products have a number of distinct advantages:

  • Reliability of Supply
    Sourced from New Zealand kiwifruit. The New Zealand kiwifruit industry has a long history of stable production producing fruit that meet the highest standards of horticultural practice and food safety. Continuity of supply is assured.

  • Safety
    The regulatory controls on fruit production prevent harmful chemicals from entering the food chain. Ensures compliance with New Zealand's high food safety standards.

  • Formulation
    The product is a powder provided in a way that will be compaitible with the customer's requirements.

  • Shelf Life
    Packed in multi-layer metallised barrier bags, moisture and air uptake is minimised. Our physical and enzymic stability is in excess of 2 years at ambient temperature.

  • Low-Temperature
    Actinidin enzymes exhibit activity at low temperatures, enabling controlled hydrolysis while minimising microbial risk.

  • Thermal Stability
    Actinidin activity is optimal at 55º - 60ºC ensuring that hydrolysis can be performed at temperatures preventing microbial growth.

  • Long Storage Life
    The actinidin extract is converted to a powder with a low moisture content and corresponding low water activity. Benefits compared to traditional liquid enzyme products include:
    • Greatly reduced microbial load
    • Greatly enhanced enzyme stability, longer storage life
    • Less susceptible to microbiological contamination after the pack is opened compared with liquid products
    • Does not require refrigeration

  • High Activity Levels
    Our Actinidin extracts can be produced with proteolytic enzyme activity levels that are higher than those produced by papaya and pineapple extract. Kiwienzyme© Actinidin enzyme activity is expressed in units per gram based on the synthetic substrate CBZ-lysine-ONp. If you are unable to relate your application to the units stated on our product then we will be happy to assist in making the correlation/comparison.
