ULTRA-FERM is a liquid amyloglucosidase (highly concentrated) from selected classical strain of Aspergillus niger.

A suitable substrate for saccharification is a liquefied starch with a dextrose equivalent (DE) between 10 and 20. A higher DE than 20 might reduce the saccharification efficiency. The concentration of the substrate will also influence the saccharification efficiency. A concentration of 20-25% is a general practice. ULTRA-FERM dosage, for given reaction time, depends on the amount of glucose requested. It is usually recommended to add 400 ml per ton of starch for a fast hydrolysis. Possible pH range of use is from 3.5 to 5.5 with optimal between 4.0 and 5.3.

Optimal temperature is 60°C. Amyloglucosidase activity is completely destroyed when the saccharified liquor is held at 85°C for 10 minutes. As an example: a yield of 94% glucose can be obtained after 40 hours with 36000 AGI per kg dry matter; after 72 hours with 17000 AGI/kg and after 85 hours with 13000 AGI/kg, at pH 4.5 with temperature 60°C.
