Part of the key to success of Belachan is the action of natural bacterial enzyme activity. Natural bacterial enzymes partially digest the whole proteins within the prawn and shrimp. The natural digestion turns the proteins into freely soluble peptides and amino acids. Free amino acids and peptides are feeding stimulants, attractants and enhancers that carp very easily detect in solution when released from bait!
The production process of Belachan and related products is natural and simple. The proteins within the shrimps etc are broken down by micro-organisms by fermentation digestion. Natural fermentation is highly significant; representing a hugely important food edge for carp and in terms of human food digestion! The fermentation of food groups such as proteins and carbohydrates fats and oils seriously enhances the taste and digestibility of foods extremely beneficially!
