Rising consumer awareness and interest in health and wellness is driving year-on-year increases in demand for fruit and vegetable juice-based products.

Single-strength and concentrated juices from an ever wider range of traditional fruits and vegetables are processed for use in many final products, including clear and cloudy juices, concentrates, purées and nectars, fruit preparations and extracted oil products.

Yet fruit processors today must constantly deliver the best quality products, while dealing with fluctuating raw material quality and quantity and pressure on final products pricing.

Our world-leading fruit processing enzymes are known and respected globally for their reliability and performance.

We continuously monitor trends and growing conditions to ensure our products provide solutions to real market challenges. Tailored to each specific process, we have an extensive array of enzymes for key fruit processing markets. So for maximum quality without the muscle, team up with DSM, your partner for smart processing.


Taste & indulgence

Fruits are tasty, colorful and appealing. Established favorite juice flavors include apple and orange, and typical berries ( like cranberry, raspberry or blackcurrant ), while many others are rapidly gaining prominence, such superfruits ( pomegranate or açai berry ). Fruit processors must deliver consistent taste and quality, while adapting their extraction techniques for new products to satisfy consumer tastes. Our enzymes give you the flexibility to process any fruit or vegetable in your portfolio, whatever your needs.


Health & vitality

Consumers today are increasingly health-conscious, and many are looking for products with no additives or preservatives. Five-a-day campaigns across the world underline the importance of fruit as part of a healthy diet, while a variety of superfruits take the spotlight, offering new health benefits. It’s challenging to create healthy, appealing products, without sacrificing taste and stability. We work alongside fruit processors to offer solutions that deliver products with real health rewards and clean label status.

Food safety & ethical

There’s growing interest in products that are ethically sourced and produced. Our enzymes are reliable, worry-free and deliver safe, consistent results every time. DSM adheres to strict regulatory standards, and has rigorously tested all of its products, giving you complete peace of mind. What’s more, our products are non-GMO, kosher and halal, and many have organic status, offering opportunities for differentiation in end product labeling.
