Stainzyme is a new, highly active enzyme for detergents that removes difficult stains and retains the colors of clothes, according to executives at Novozymes, headquartered in Denmark.
Stainzyme is effective at low temperatures. The ingredient is an alpha amylase with different pH and temperature profiles than other amalyases, company executives said.
Stainzyme can tackle ketchup, pasta sauce, chocolate, berries and dressing, while reducing washing time and allowing whites to stay white longer and colors to be retained. This is possible because Stainzyme prevents dissolved dirt in the washwater from binding to and distributing itself throughout the clothes, Novozymes executives said.
