Lysonase (Phospholipase A2) [ EC ]

“For better quality of food with our original technology of extraction and purification”

Phospholipase A2 is distributed widely in living organisms and well-known to digest phospholipids from plants and produce bioactive substances such as prostaglandine by a hydrolysis of phospholipids in the cell membrane. SANYO FINE has original technologies for extraction and purification of phospholipase A2 from swine pancreas. Lysonase is one of our products containing phspholipase A2 with high potency and its ability is stereo-selective hydrolysis of the ester at 2-position of glycero-phospholipids. We can supply them both as aqueous solution and powder form depending on our customer’s need.


Phospholipase A2 converts lecithin, which is contained in egg yolk and soybean, to lysolecithin by a hydrolysis. Lysolecithin has much ability of emulsification than that of lecithin and is used as emulsion stabilizer for ice-cream and mayonnaise, dispersion stabilizer for chocolate and quality improvement for dough.
