Have you ever wondered what living objects were made up off? How food is digested? No not by cells, but those catalysts that break down substances. They are called enzymes. Enzymes are biological molecules, proteins, which act as catalysts and help complicated reactions occur everywhere in life. Enzymes are very precise catalysts that usually work to complete one assignment. Example being; an enzyme that helps digest proteins will not be useful to break down carbohydrates. Also, you will not find all enzymes everywhere in the body. They are also precise on the temperature they work best in which is usually about 35 to 40 degrees. Enzymes are denatureds by high temperatures. This is because they are protein molecules, which are damaged by heat. Enzymes work best at a particular PH. Some work in acidic places and…show more content…
An advantage being trypsin breaks down the protein into amino acids and those acids are the ones that build up the babies’ bodies, strengthens the muscles and boosts up their immune systems. Trypsin also has several health benefits one being, vitamins. On the other hand trypsin can trigger allergic reactions, which are dangerous to babies. Another problem where trypsin doesn’t work properly is; Low stomach acid. If the baby has a low stomach acid, it’s likely that they won’t have adequate digestive enzymes. Using trypsin in baby foods also has limitations to it working. If the baby has or inherited pancreatic problems, including cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, and acute or chronic pancreatitis or Brush border dysfunction, the most severe is long standing Celiac disease, where the brush border is flattened or destroyed the digestive enzyme being trypsin will not be able to work. Enzymes are used in industry to make reactions and process’s occur at low temperatures and pressures, which otherwise would
