CAS: 9001-37-0 Glucose Oxidase (GOD) is a yellow lyophilized powder produced through genetic engineering of the glucose oxidase gene from Aspergillus niger in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It has high specificity for converting β-D-glucose and effectively removes oxygen without causing precipitates or turbidity. In the food industry, GOD acts as a safe and eco-friendly additive, preventing beer aging, preserving flavor, and extending shelf life. It enhances stability in red wine, grape juice, and packaged foods by deoxygenation. Additionally, GOD is used to preserve milk, fruit juice, and vegetables. It also plays a crucial role in measuring glucose content, enabling rapid and accurate testing in various food products and blood glucose monitoring for humans. Glucose oxidase is widely applied in the food industry, biopharmaceutical sector, and beyond.

Glucose Oxidase (GOD), produced through genetic engineering of the glucose oxidase gene from Aspergillus niger in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is a yellow lyophilized powder. It is free from animal-derived components.
In terms of functionality, GOD exhibits high specificity in converting β-D-glucose, while having low efficiency towards other monosaccharides. It demonstrates fast oxygen removal, excellent thermal stability, and does not generate precipitates or turbidity after reactions.
In the food industry, GOD serves as a green and environmentally friendly additive with no toxicity or side effects on human health. It can prevent beer aging, preserve the original flavor, and extend the shelf life. It enhances the stability of red wine and grape juice. When applied in packaged foods, it acts as a deoxygenation agent, prolonging the preservation period. It is also utilized for the preservation of milk, fruit juice, vegetables, and more.
Another significant application of GOD is in determining glucose content in samples. By utilizing its specific oxidase properties, GOD-based analyzers and test papers enable rapid, accurate, and convenient measurement of glucose content in various food products, as well as for blood glucose testing in humans. Currently, glucose oxidase finds widespread applications in the food industry, biopharmaceutical sector, and beyond.
