Rapidase enzymes enables better fruit texture and appearance

Maintain fruit piece identity
The Rapidase FP-Super and Rapidase PEP fruit and vegetable firming enzymes help to strengthen the fruit product during thermal and mechanical treatment.

Increase fruit puree viscosity
Fruit purees and nectars are rich in natural pectin’s. Treatment with Rapidase FP-Super activates these pectin’s, thereby greatly increasing the viscosity (up to 180%), and improving the natural mouthfeel and thickness of the puree.

Minimize color bleed
The Rapidase fruit firming enzymes help to reduce the color bleed in two important ways: The cell structure of the fruit is strengthened, reducing leaching of color components from the fruit into the white mass. Also, the viscosity and thickness of the fruit preparation is increased, resulting in reduced mixing with the white mass.

No need for artificial ingredients
Rapidase FP-Super and Rapidase PEP are processing aids which are free from all major food allergens. Therefore, the use of these products does not need to be labeled on the final food product. In addition, the use of the Rapidase enzymes allows you to avoid applying artificial texturizers and stabilizers to your recipe.

Organic and natural
The microorganism, raw materials and production process for the manufacture of the Rapidase FP-Super enzymes are in line with the regulations for organic and non-GMO certification in all major regions and markets.
