Maxilact® Lactase enzymes help consumers enjoy the benefits of dairy

Lactose intolerance isn’t a new problem: In fact our market leadership is based on 50 years’ experience, during which time we’ve become the primary producer of lactase worldwide. For example, our scientists have found a way to remove the impurities which cause off-flavor from lactase – which in turn has proven to significantly improve the quality of lactose free products.

But the benefits don’t end here. Maxilact® also drives sweetness enhancement in dairy products, boosting taste without adding calories.
