Fats Oils & Grease (FOGs)
Digestion of Fats, Oils, and Grease
Instead of emulsifying Fats Oils and Grease (FOG), as enzyme products and surfactants do, EM•1® will digest them, thereby eliminating them from the system. During the natural fermentation process, over 100 different enzymes are produced by the microbes in EM•1®. Since there is no freeze drying or pasteurization of the EM•1®, all the enzymes are left in solution and continue to be produced by the live microbes in the culture. In regards to grease digestion, the most important of these enzymes are protease and lipase. Microbes use enzymes to accelerate the breakdown of various materials. This is one of the main reasons EM•1® does such a great job at digesting grease. If you inoculate a system with only enzymes, you don't necessarily have the microbes in place that can use them and finish the process.
