Transglutaminase (TGase) is a monomeric protein whose active center consists of 331 amino groups. It catalyzes the combination of the r-aroyl amino group of L-lysine and glutamic acid, covalent cross-linking occurs between proteins or peptides to form a polymer of covalent compounds.

In the food industry, TGase is used to improve various functional properties of meat and protein products, such as improving the structure of meat, gel properties, elasticity, water and fat retention, etc. At the same time, some essential amino acids such as lysine are protected from the Maillard reaction.

How To Use Transglutaminase?

Essentially, transglutaminase (TG) binds proteins together by forming crosslinks between them. This process is called protein modification. TG can be used to modify animal and vegetable proteins.

TGase can be widely used in aquatic products, ham, sausage, noodles, tofu, etc. Under the condition of 40-45℃ and pH6-7, only 0.1-0.3% TGase can achieve obvious effect.
