Improving Emulsifying Properties of Eggs
Eggs are a valuable food source providing a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and minerals, that are essential for healthy body growth and development.
Enzymes for Superior Palatability of Pet Food
Combinations of proteases and lipases can be used to hydrolyse meat by-products and plant-based proteins to produce palatants. Palatants are flavours specifically produced by enzymically breaking down animal fats and proteins to give a sensory boost to pet food.

Precision Fermentation – a bio-based route to alternative protein
Nutrition in industrialised countries will move away from meat and dairy consumption towards alternative sources of protein and foods. These will rely on plants, microorganisms and cell cultures. Biotechnology will be the key enabler. This is where we come in.
The Use of Enzymes for Improving Foaming Properties of Egg Whites
The main functional property of egg white is its high foaming capacity useful in a wide range of food applications.

Biocatalysts Ltd launch Protease Preparation for the Valorisation of Animal Waste Protein
Enzyme specialists, Biocatalysts Ltd, announce the launch of their new enzyme, Promod® 324L, extending their range of enzymes for the pet food industry.
The Use of Enzymes for Dairy Flavour Enhancement
Enzymes have been used for centuries to produce flavour in dairy products. Traditionally flavour is generated by enzymes produced from microflora present in cheese, butter, or cream and time is required for these complex flavours to evolve. In more recent times the addition of exogenous (external source) enzymes to immature cheese, butter oil or cream has been used to speed this process up intensifying the flavour in hours and days instead of weeks and months.
