Why does copper sulphate affect the breakdown of starch with amylase?

Wild guess but I’m guessing the copper sulphate is binding to part of the enzyme (amylase) at an allosteric site and causing non competitive inhibition. This means the enzyme is denatured and the substrate can no longer fit in the active site.
