A high value is thus, placed on thermostable and thermoactive amylolytic enzymes in the bioprocessing of starch (Norman, 1979).
Soluble starch was reported to be the best carbon source for thermostable amylolytic enzymes production (Swamy and Seenayya, 1996a, b; Reddy et al.
This thermo stability is an important factor for the use of amylolytic enzymes in starch-processing industries.
