To prevent the progression of Type 2 DM and for the treatment of prediabetic conditions, one of the most effective therapeutic approaches is the reduction of post-prandial hyperglycemia by inhibiting the carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes [alpha]-glucosidase and a-amylase.
By acting at random locations along the starch chain a-amylase breaks down long- chain carbohydrates ultimately yielding maltotriose and maltose from amylase or maltose glucose and limit dextrin" from amylopectin by an endoacting hydrolytic mechanism thereby making it amenable to the action of amyloglucosidase for saccharification to reducing sugar [2 3].
