    Product Overview

    Transglutaminase, also known as TG enzyme, is an enzyme widely found in the human body, higher animals, plants, and microorganisms. It possesses remarkable catalytic abilities for protein cross-linking, binding proteins to amino acids, and hydrolyzing glutamine residues. Therefore, it is extensively employed as a food additive. Produced through the fermentation of Streptomyces mobaraensis, the transglutaminase enzyme exhibits multiple outstanding effects in the food industry, including enhancing the foaming, emulsifying stability, heat stability, water retention, and gel-forming capability of protein-based foods. These effects further improve the nutritional value, taste, flavor, texture, and appearance of food. TG enzyme provides strong adhesion as the covalent bonds it catalyzes are resistant to breaking under typical non-enzymatic conditions. Thus, it prevents food from disintegrating after processing, such as during meat fragmentation, freezing, slicing, and cooking. Additionally, TG enzyme demonstrates excellent pH stability. Its robust heat stability allows it to function over a wide temperature range, with the optimal performance observed around 45°C to 55°C. In protein-based food systems, its heat stability is significantly enhanced. Moreover, in catalyzing protein reactions, TG enzyme exhibits an inverse relationship between temperature and reaction time: higher temperatures require shorter reaction times, and vice versa. This characteristic makes TG enzyme highly flexible and stable in food processing.
