What is Sacrosidase
Sacrosidase is an oral enzyme produced as a by-product of the manufacture of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). It is used for treating sucrase deficiency associated with congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID).
CSID is a rare genetic disease in which the body lacks sucrase and isomaltase, enzymes necessary to break down and absorb sucrose and isomaltose, respectively.
- congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID)
- abdominal pain
- laboratory monitoring not necessary
- diabetes mellitus
- glycerin hypersensitivity
- papain hypersensitivity
- yeast hypersensitivity
Food: (Moderate) Sacrosidase should not be reconstituted or consumed with acidic food, like fruit juice, since the acidity may reduce the enzyme activity.
