Q. Are there any benefits in using Tergazyme to reduce the risk of allergen cross contamination? As you know, allergens are proteins, so under what conditions might the protease in Tergazyme denature allergen proteins to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. A. Yes. Tergazyme contains a serine endopeptidase protease that will lyse proteins and change their tertiary structure in a way that can reduce their allergenic nature.
