Enzyme Supplement Protects Gluten-sensitive Patients

CHICAGO — The prolyl endoprotease enzyme derived from Aspergillus niger might help people with a gluten sensitivity who unintentionally consume wheat or other grains avoid troublesome gastrointestinal symptoms, a small study suggests.

The enzyme, known as AN-PEP and marketed as Tolerase G by DSM in the United States, "actually works," said lead investigator Julia König, PhD, from Örebro University in Sweden. "There are a lot of enzymes on the market, but this functions in the stomach where the pH is acidic. Often enzymes don't work in this environment."
