Papaya Enzyme Pills
    #1760860 - 07/29/03 09:47 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hi, I was wondering where I could get papaya enzyme pills? What else would help nausea/upset stomach etc. and where could I get it?

i can't find my old food science book right now, but i know papaya and pineapple contain an acid which breaks down fat's molecular bonds which is why alot of people put pineapple on ham while roasting etc.. you don't need pills of the specific enzyme canned or fresh pineapple or papaya work fine.

It's not an acid, it's an enzyme -- and they don't break down fat -- they break down protein.  This makes them a natural meat tenderizer.

If you want to see something neat, get some fresh pineapple and put it on some jello.  After a few hours, the enzymes will completely liquify the jello.  Canned pineapple doesn't work well if at all, because the heat of the canning process denatures the relevant enzymes.  :smile:

papaya enzyme = papain
pineapple enzyme = bromelein
proteolytic enzymes

there are enzymes that break down fats & enzymes that break down starches as well (lipases & amylases, i think...)
