What function does starch have on the body?
It provides a slow release of energy. It can be stored in the liver, muscles or tissues and extra starch is broken down into simple sugars and stored as fat.
Maltese is an enzyme that converts maltose into glucose. Upon production, the glucose can be either used by the human body or stored within the liver as animal starch or glycogen. Found in people, yeasts, bacteria and plants, Maltese is also a carbohydrate-digesting enzyme that is found naturally in sugars produced by the body when it breaks down starch.
