More recently, the company announced its alliance with Broin, the largest privately held ethanol producer in the US, to further develop technology used to create raw starch hydrolyzing enzymes for Broin's BPX[TM] process, a patent-pending method that converts starch to sugar, which then ferments to ethanol without heat.
Our previous collaboration to create raw starch hydrolyzing enzymes for our BPX[TM] process was highly successful.
The resulting polysaccharide-a new class of drugs called carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzyme inhibitors (CHEI)-is taken before meals, working in the gastrointestinal tract to "disable" the carbs.
