Historical Examples of diastase
Starch converted by the action of acids, diastase, or heat, into a soluble substance resembling gum.
This malt contains a certain chemical “ferment” or enzyme, called “diastase” (“I separate”).
This increases the diastase contained in the grain so germinated, and this diastase is able to transform starch into soluble form.
This is better effected by an acid such as sulphuric acid, or by a diastase.
This saccharification of the starch may be accomplished by sulphuric acid or by the action of diastase.
