The Pioneering Process of Manufacturing Papain

Papain, a crucial enzyme extracted from the papaya fruit, plays a pivotal role in the pharmaceutical industry and beyond. The process begins when papaya fruits, about three months post-setting, are lanced directly on the trees. The latex collected is a treasure trove of papain. This latex, after being collected in trays, undergoes a meticulous cleaning process, passing through a mesh sieve to eliminate extraneous matter before being dried using sophisticated methods like hot air drying or vacuum shelf drying. The dried product, boasting an average yield of 0.25% papain, is then carefully packed in airtight containers to maintain its potency and stored in cool, dry conditions to ensure its longevity. This process underscores the precision and care B.Sen Barry & Co. employs in producing high-quality papain.

The Intricate Extraction of Pectin from Papaya

Pectin, widely recognized for its gelling properties, finds extensive use in the food industry, particularly in jams, jellies, and as a stabilizer in dairy products. The extraction of pectin from papaya is a testament to our commitment to quality and efficiency. Following the end of the tapping period, the collected papaya fruits are meticulously prepared, minced, and steeped overnight in a sulphur dioxide solution to ensure the highest purity and quality of the extracted pectin. The subsequent process involves a series of extractions and adjustments to pH levels to clarify the solution, which is then precipitated to form aluminium pectinate. This substance is further processed, dried, and prepared for use in various food production applications. Each step in the pectin extraction process is a reflection of B.Sen Barry & Co.’s dedication to delivering superior products that enhance food texture and stability.
