Abstract

Good nutrition is key factor for human health. Conditions of secondary insufficiency of the gastric gland and a decreased production of digestive enzymes lead to changes in the gastric-intestinal metabolism, which imposes the intake polyenzyme products as food supplement. The created on the basis of freeze-drying complex polyenzyme product with its composition, containing the main groups digestive enzymes (chymosin, α – amylase, bromelain, lipase), incorporated in a hydrocolloid matrix and in combination with plant biologically active components is appropriate for prophylaxis in cases of gastric-intestinal tract discomfort and disturbed digestion. The obtained product was qualified by organoleptic, biochemical, physical-chemical and microbiological characteristics. The retaining of the catalytic activity of the enzyme substances and the chemical composition of the incorporated biologically active substances has been established.
