What you have learned in Lesson 1

Topic Progress:

The starch polymer can be broken down in the saccharification step of the starch hydrolysis process by

Applying acid and/or combinations of enzymes to a starch liquefact.

While acid catalysis proceeds in a random fashion, enzyme cocktails can produce almost any mixture of starch hydrolysis products.

The extend of saccharification is characterized by the DE value, while the sugar spectrum depends on the applied acid and enzymes in the conversion process.
