DSM Food Specialties

We believe food should be healthier, tastier, and more sustainable

DSM Food Specialties

At DSM Food Specialties, Enabling Better Food for Everyone is our purpose. Providing specialty food enzymes, cultures, bio-preservation, savory, and sugar reduction solutions to the food industry is our business. 

Our ingredients and solutions are widely used to create a broad range of food products, from grocery favorites like yogurt, cheese, and soups to specialized food formats like gluten-free bread or beer, meat substitutes, lactose-free milk, and sugar reduced beverages.

Consumers today are more aware than ever that their health depends, for a large part, on what they eat every day. At the same time, consumers crave on-the-go and convenience foods to suit their busy lifestyles. In our product development and innovation process, we address the desire for delicious, healthier foods.

Innovation inspired by the global megatrends

Scientific curiosity and thorough research in the food application arena is key to our innovation power. Key megatrends inspire our innovation agenda, and we deeply invest in research to discover and develop specialty food ingredients with the help of our microorganisms. We use our yeasts, fungi, bacteria, and their natural fermentation processes to develop and produce specialty food ingredients. Employing just the right fermentation technology and knowing the ins and outs of strain development, we can deliver safe and sustainable ingredients to our customers, ensuring a reliable supply.

Our solutions are aimed at enabling customers to reduce sugar, enhance taste, provide healthier options, extend shelf life, and increase food chain efficiency.
