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.
