Food Chemical Codex (FCC) is published by the National Academy Press and is the accepted standard of the US FDA.
The system for determining enzyme potency used by the American food industry is derived from the FCC.
FCC is accepted as National Standard for evaluation of enzymes. This system establishes activity levels and potency for enzymes.
|S.NO||ENZYME||Activity Units as per FCC||Current Activity Claim by Sabinsa (Units/g) & Correlation with FCC Units|
|1||Alpha-amylase||DU||24000 U/g (Dextrinizing Unit /gram)|
|2||Cellulase||CU||200 U/g = 1100 CU/g (Cellulase Unit /gram)|
|3||Lipase||FIP||1000 U/g = 200 FIP/g (Fungal Lipase International Unit/gram)|
|4||Lactase||ALU||4000 U/g = 4000 ALU/g (Acid Lactase Unit/gram)|
|5||Neutral Protease||PC||6000 U/g = 6000 PC/g (Protease Unit on L-tyrosine basis/gram)|
|6||Acid Protease||HUT||10000 HUT/g (Hemoglobin Unit on tyrosinase basis/gram)|
