Amylase is an enzyme. Enzymes are catalysts, which speed up chemical reactions. In the case of Amylase, it breaks down the long chain starch molecues into smaller chains of maltose. It does so by connecting with the starch molecues and breaking them apart.
This is why many animals have Amylase in their digestive system.
