CalB immo Plus Food Grade is an immobilized, recombinant Lipase B from Candida antarctica (CalB) produced by microbial fermentation with Pichia pastoris. It is suitable for solvent-free or organic solvent systems, and can be used for regio- and stereoselective esterifications and transesterifications. The lipase is immobilized by adsorption onto our highly hydrophobic carrier, Lifetech ECR1030M, a DVB/methacrylate co-polymer. It  issupplied in food-grade quality and conforms to the general specifications and considerations for enzyme preparations used in food processing of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA).
