Why is FODZYME a powder when most enzyme products are in a capsule/caplet?Updated 8 months ago

We love being asked this question because we get to geek out about our discoveries! We know from extensive testing that mixing enzymes directly into food is the most effective way to deliver an enzyme supplement.

This is because the enzymes need to mix well with the food to get to its substrates (e.g. fructan) within the food. Swallowing an enzyme supplement like a pill/capsule does not allow the enzyme to sufficiently work into the food! The enzymes in pill form remain localized until it is too late: the pH of your gastric tract becomes unfavorable for the enzymes to work or the enzymes become digested themselves. It is crucial to maximize food-enzyme-homogenization, and this is what our powder form achieves.
