Improved volume and crumb structure

Industrial production of bread requires a strong, stable dough for optimal machinability. Novozymes dough-strengthening enzymes match the cost-efficiency and performance of emulsifiers, resulting in consistent bread quality with delicious, soft and elastic texture, high oven spring and improved crust appearance. The enzymes mimic the effects of traditional dough-strengthening agents.

Reduce costs and carbon footprint

Reduce costs with our dough-strengthening enzymes, which can be used at lower dosages than traditional ingredients. They result in greater dough tolerance for easier handling, and a high-quality loaf.

Compared to traditional emulsifiers, you can benefit from a significant reduction of your carbon footprint supported by the use of our solution.

Why you need a phospholipase in your production

Phospholipases modify the lipids present in flour to provide a cost-effective match for emulsifier performance. They improve dough stability and bread volume.

It produces bread that looks better with consistent high quality, a clean label and a decreased carbon footprint compared to traditionally used dough strengtheners. And it leads to significant savings.
