Present in plants, animals and microorganisms, enzymes are proteins that function as catalysts for the thousands of chemical reactions that take place in all living cells. These natural substances are ideal for use in the modern food industry.
By adding modern biotechnology and knowledge, we can not only mimic the natural enzymatic process but also speed it up. The result is enzymes that are as they would appear in nature and, yet, with an accelerating effect that contributes value-adding, previously unattainable functionalities to food products.
DuPont™ Danisco® food enzymes help the food industry to improve freshness, optimize production, add texture, ensure quality consistency and reduce costs – gains that enable our customers to reduce their water and energy consumption and waste.
Enzymes also support health and wellness aims, for example by promoting the digestion of milk lactose, starch, proteins, fats and oils.
