DEPOL® carbohydrate modifications
Enzymes are natural and powerful processing aids used to access valuable functionality in the production of natural sweeteners. Within the healthy carbohydrate market, enzymes can be used to assist in the release of natural sugar molecules from plant material, enhance the sweetness properties, produce bulking agents and prebiotics from simple sugars.
