Extraction of Gags
GAGs are the carbohydrate part of proteoglycans found in animal tissue like mucosa, trachea, rooster combs, skin and lung tissue from which they can be extracted.
Effective process – less water and waste
Prior to the complicated extraction of the GAGs, the surrounding tissue protein to which the GAGs are covalently linked has to be hydrolysed.
An enzymatic hydrolysis produces a cleaner raw material for the GAGs extraction and reduces the waste and the amount of water required for downstream processing.
