Diastase, in the human body, helps make carbohydrates digestible. By turning the carbohydrate into sugar, they help the body process the carbs. Glucoamylase and amylase are the enzymes in human saliva that do this work – when they are not present in sufficient amounts, diastase (in supplement form and in food like HONEY) can help make up the difference.
Honey can contain a number of different enzymes. Some of these are introduced by bees, and some are found in the nectar. As with most aspects of honey, different nectar/honey sources have widely varying enzyme activity. Typically enzymes are proteins of complex structure that catalyze a specific chemical reaction. They are sensitive to heat, visible and UV light and other forms of energy such as microwaves.
Of all the enzymes in honey, Diastase and Invertase have received the most attention. They are introduced to honey by bees but their presence [in fresh honey] is variable. Factors that affect their presence are thought to be nectar composition and concentration, the age of the bees, and the intensity of the nectar flow.
Lovoury Honey is certified 100% natural honey which has been tested by independent, accredited laboratories in Thailand and Germany. The results show high diastase enzyme activity of over 12 units for our Wildflower Honey and 18 units for our Longan Flower Honey.
