“This ferment, called by them _galactase_, on account of its origin in milk, is a proteolytic enzym of the tryptic type.”
“Conn  has separated the rennet enzym from bacterial cultures in a relatively pure condition, while Fermi  has isolated the digestive ferment from several species.”
“It is impossible that there is ammonia smell because ammonia is formed when the proteins are being digested by the tripsinojen enzym and then carried to the liver where it is turned into uric asid and urea, so it doesn't poisen you.”
