Boosting cheese yield  

Increasing cheese yield while keeping the same taste and texture isn’t an easy job. But our experts helped a Gouda cheesemaker achieve it, using our Maxiren®XDS enzyme. The result was a 1.5% increase in yield that saved the producer €1.5 million annually.

Plant-based expertise

Boosting the nutrition of plant-based meat or fish alternatives is key to meeting consumer needs. That’s why our nutritional premix experts work with you to differentiate your products by adding nutrition that complements your product and base protein – and delights consumers.
