Fruit, cereals and vegetables are all natural products used to produce a wide variety of finished beverages, processed foods, juices, purees and other industrial and consumer products. Biocatalysts manufacture a broad range of enzymes that are used during the production process of these products.
Enzymes are used for a variety of reasons including:
Reducing processing time by increasing speed of production
Increasing yield e.g. by increasing amount of juice extracted
Reducing cost of process either by reducing time or waste
Improving functionality of ingredients e.g. keeping fruit firm for use in yoghurts/desserts
