TriEnza® provides digestive support for a broad range of foods.
- Enzyme product for multiple food intolerances
- Supports digestion of gluten, dairy, proteins, carbohydrates, polyphenols and fats
- Includes the DPP IV ("DPP 4") enzyme to support the digestion of gluteomorphin (from gluten) and casomorphin (from dairy casein)
- Reduces occasional gas and bloating†
- Available in capsules, chewable tablets, and powder
The unique blend of enzymes in TriEnza break down foods to help prevent occasional digestive discomfort from food intolerances.
The enzymes in TriEnza offer support for:
- Food proteins
- Casein in dairy
- Polyphenolic vegetables and fruits
- Fats in foods and supplements
TriEnza was specially formulated for your dietary needs by biochemist Devin Houston, Ph.D.

What's new & improved with TriEnza?
As of July 2, 2019, we've made a few updates to the TriEnza formula to bring you even better support for digesting a range of foods.
The changes we made to TriEnza should result in a product better able to:
- Break down gluten, dairy casein, soy, and meat protein.
- Support digestion of the sugars sucrose and maltose, which will also be helpful for the gut microbiome.
- Help with occasional gas and bloating through fiber breakdown.†
Better support for protein digestion, including gluten and casein.
We exchanged a Protease.
We exchanged one of the proteases, an enzyme for proteins, for a particular newer protease which is more efficient for the breakdown of gluten, dairy casein, soy and other food proteins. This enzyme is listed as “Protease” on the TriEnza label.
We reduced the DPP IV.
In order to add the new Protease, we reduced the amount of another enzyme for proteins, referred to as “Peptidase with DPP IV”. With the addition of the new Protease, the need for the DPP IV Peptidase enzyme is less.
We also believe that the DPP IV Peptidase may be an enzyme that some consumers cannot tolerate. We hope reducing the amount of this enzyme, without any loss of ability to break down proteins, will allow others to better tolerate TriEnza.
Improved enzyme breakdown for sugars.
We added Invertase.
We’ve added the enzyme Invertase to better break down table sugar, known as sucrose.
We added Diastase.
To help with another common sugar, maltose, TriEnza now has the enzyme Diastase on the label. Diastase works to break down the maltose that results from eating starches.
More support for gas and bloating from fiber.
We increased the Cellulase.
Most gas and bloating from meals is actually due to the fiber present. To help with this issue, we added Cellulase. Celluase can work on fiber along with the other two fiber enzymes already present in TriEnza (Xylanase and Beta-glucanase).
Fiber breakdown contributes to a healthy environment for gut bacteria. TriEnza can help reduce the amount of gas and bloating by making fiber more soluble (dissolvable in water) and digestible.
We removed the Alpha-galactosidase.
TriEnza’s update includes removing the enzyme Alpha-galactosidase, which allowed for increasing the Cellulase. This enzyme is limited to working on two of the starches found in beans, cauliflower and broccoli. Other products with Alpha-galactosidase are readily available for consumers seeking that particular enzyme, such as ZyCarb or Zyme Prime.
A few changes were made to the Other Ingredients for our updated TriEnza formulas:
- TriEnza capsules now have Medium Chain Triglyceride Powder added, derived from palm/coconut kernel oil.
- TriEnza Chewables now have the sweetener Xylitol added.
- TriEnza Powder now has Microcrystalline Cellulose added. The Medium Chain Triglyceride Powder in TriEnza Powder is derived from palm/coconut kernel oil.
TriEnza is still our best broad-spectrum enzyme product for protein, gluten, dairy, starches, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and polyphenolic foods.†
Contraindications for Enzyme Supplementation
These enzymes should be used with care in cases of active stomach or duodenal ulcers, severe bowel inflammation (characterized by blood in stools), hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, or within a week of scheduled surgery. This product may not be appropriate for those with known allergies to Aspergillus enzyme proteins, though non-specific mold allergies do not necessarily preclude use of fungal enzymes. Consult your medical doctor for further advice, and err on the side of caution. Those with known anaphylactic allergic reactions to fungal proteins should NOT ingest fungal-derived enzymes.
Frequently Asked Questions
If the capsule is opened and contents put on food or in drink, will the proteases hurt the mouth or throat?
The proteases should not be harmful if taken without the capsule. Some irritation may occur if the enzyme remains on the cheeks or gums due to a debriding action on the layer of dead skin cells. We recommend drinking or eating after taking the enzymes to clear the mouth of the enzymes, or brushing teeth, gargling, etc.†
Will TriEnza help those with celiac disease?
We make no claims for enzymes helping any disease condition. Celiac disease is very serious and those with the disease should stay on the doctor-advised gluten-free diet. Taking the enzymes while maintaining a gluten-free diet should do no harm.
Do I need to be on the GFCF diet for TriEnza to work?
No, TriEnza will work regardless whether you are on the GFCF (gluten-free, casein-free) diet. Many use it as an alternative to the GFCF diet with very good results.†
