Pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes. Pancreatin production and secretion by the pancreas is essential to digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats.
Much of the pancreatin (and pepsin) on the market is actually diluted with hidden lactose as a means of diluting the potency of a digestive enzyme to meet a given specification. The U.S. Pharmacopeia calls for pepsin and pancreatin to have a specified digestive power. Anything greater than the specified U.S. Pharmacopeia requirement is listed on the label as 2X, 3X, etc., – meaning the product has two or three times the specified digestive power. Pure, raw pancreatin typically has a 9X digestive power. In other words, 9X means the pancreatin is undiluted. Anything less than 9X is diluted, often with lactose. And both prescription and non-prescription digestive enzyme products might contain lactose.
Thorne's pure pancreatin is a lactose-free product and has the highest potency and purity possible. Thorne uses only pure, undiluted pancreatin.
