Let Us Customize an Enzyme Solution to Achieve Your Food and Beverage Processing Goals

Enzymes play an important role in the processing of many food and beverage ingredients and products. Enzymes catalyze essential, highly specific reactions under unique conditions to preserve flavor and texture of food. This type of processing is often preferable to harsh chemical and thermal treatments. The use of enzymes in food processing is generally consistent with “clean label” and “all-natural” labeling.

Enzymes to help digest proteins into amino acid building blocks

Enzymes to help break down fats into energy-rich fatty acids

Enzymes to help digest starch carbohydrates

Enzyme to digest lactose

To help break down hard-to-digest carbohydrates and plant fibers

To help release nutrients and minerals from plants

Fat-modifying lipases are used in cheese production to impact both flavor and texture. Lipases are additionally used as an emulsifier in the production of dressings, mayonnaise and other food products.

Amylases are the most widely used enzyme in food processing. Amylases help break down long chains of glucose called starch. The process of starch liquefaction requires amylase during a vital step in manufacturing high fructose corn syrup. Amylases are also used in baking for anti-staling properties and in fruit juice processing for clarification.

Also known as beta-galactosidase, lactase converts the disaccharide milk sugar called lactose into the monosaccharides glucose and galactose. In food processing lactase is used in the manufacturing of “lactose-free” milk for consumers with lactose intolerance. Lactase is also used to modulate flavor and texture in yogurt processing.

Other Carbohydrases

A number of additional carbohydrase enzymes are commonly included in the processing of complex carbohydrates and fibers found in vegetables and plant-based foods. Examples include hemicellulase, alpha-galactosidase, xylanase, glucanase, and pectinase.
