Amylase activity-Michaelis-Menten modelling?

Using a simple photometer to detect digestion of iodine-stained arrowroot
starch by salivary amylase, I have gotten a graph that is FAIRLY closely
modeled by the  Michaelis-Menten equation.  But it deviates significantly.
 Do you have any suggestions as to why?
