Novozymes Lactozym® Pure*
Making milk digestible – Naturally good business
Most infants are born with the ability to digest lactose, the predominant carbohydrate in milk, thanks to the fact that they naturally produce the enzyme lactase. During childhood this ability lessens for many people.
Approximately 70% of the world’s population suffers from a degree of lactose intolerance, with particularly high rates in emerging markets, the same regions where dairy products are growing in popularity.
On top of this global trend, the number of consumers who are interested in lactose-free dairy products is far larger than the number of people who actually are lactose-intolerant. This is due to strong consumer interest in foods perceived to be healthy – with claims such as “gluten-free,” “no sugar added,” “no trans fats,” and now “lactose-free.”
These factors are driving strong growth in the lactose-free category and provide an excellent opportunity for dairy companies to launch new, higher-margin lactose-free products. The lactose-free dairy product category is estimated to grow 6-8% p.a. in coming years. Novozymes Lactozym® Pure increases your potential customer base while improving your customers’ ability to savor milk products. This exceptionally pure, cost-effective technology reliably eliminates lactose based on nature’s know-how.
