Peptone is a spray dried powder, manufactured by a controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of animal tissue. The most commonly used enzymes are pepsin, papain and pancreatin. The latter containing trypsin.

Pepsin will cut the peptide chain anywhere there is a phenylalanine or leucine bond.

Papain cuts in the peptide chain adjacent to arginine, lysine, phenylalanine and glycine. Pancreatin has its action at arginine, lysine, tyrosine, tryptophan, phenylalanine and leucine bonds.

The tissues are hydrolysed to produce straw coloured peptones which are highly nutritious and clearly soluble in water. Peptones contain a mix of peptides, free amino acids and growth factors.

Due to the low sodium chloride concentration Formedium™Pepton is well suited for cultivation of yeast cells.
