Transglutaminase (TG), better known to chefs as “Meat Glue, ” which is widely distributed in nature,
is an enzyme with the revolutionary ability to improve the physical properties of various protein containing foods.
TG is produced through fermentation process which is similar to making beer, wine and cheese, using conventional microorganisms.
TG is not active in the stomach, which is characterized by acidic pH, and that TG is completely degraded by pepsin. TG is a safe food enzyme which has been utilized in Europe for more than 15 years and approved in numerous other regions, including, but not limited to, U.S.A., Canada, Brazil, Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. Technologies of TG are used in processed meat/fish, combined quality meat/fish products, dairy products and bakery products.
