Our history with Papain
Enzyme Development Corporation (EDC) was founded in 1953. Our first product was Papain for chill proofing/clarifying beer, and is still used for this application today. Papain use has also expanded into numerous food, nutritional supplement, animal feed, and industrial processing applications that require protein hydrolysis.
EDC is the only producer of Papain in the western hemisphere. At our factory in Scranton, Pennsylvania, we produce standardized Papain powders and liquids, as well as unstandardized concentrates. We also produce a no sulfite added Papain that is OMRI Listed for use in Organic food processing applications and in Organic animal feeds.
