The cost-effective way to enhance flavor

Cheese ripening is a slow, expensive process. The main expense is the inventory costs you incur by delaying the sale of part of each year’s production. But there are also capital costs in the form of ripening rooms and controlled humidity and temperatures. With our portfolio of enzymes, you can speed up the ripening process to make it more economical. Our enzymes help you achieve mature flavors and textures faster.

Produce a wide range of distinctive flavors

Through adjustments to enzyme type, dosage, process time and/or conditions, you can get diverse flavors. Our lipases help release fatty acids that give Italian, feta and blue cheeses their distinctive sharp flavors. Our proteases help you develop a range of savory flavors. The result is the cheese flavors you want with the efficiency your business needs.
