Papain is derived from the tropical plant Carica Papaya and is widely used for meat tenderization, flavor production, yeast hydrolysis, and much more. Its seasonal crop variant plant origin means that its quality, price, and supply may not always be constant. This can be overcome by using a microbial alternative such as Promod 950L which isn’t dependent on the production of seasonal fruit. In addition, it also has the added benefit of being produced in a way that makes it less susceptible to other problems sometimes experienced with papain from papaya.
