Enzymes are mostly proteins or protein complexes, or some RNA molecules (ribozymes), which greatly accelerate chemical reactions in living systems.
Enzymes are widely used in the food industry. With its innovative products and high-end technology solutions developed by a highly skilled staff, DSM Food Specialties made a considerable contribution to the success of many of the world's favourite brands.
Fermented milk cultures
Highly concentrated, frozen (DSF) or lyophilized (DSL) starter cultures of lactic acid microorganisms intended for direct Deposit.
Mandatory for all fermented dairy products - cheese, cottage cheese, sour-milk drinks and desserts, national products.
Starter cultures produced by DSM Food Specialties have found wide application not only in creating traditional products, but manufacturing products with probiotic properties.
Protective cheese coating
Biochemical and microbiological processes occurring during cheese ripening depend greatly on handling.
Proper handling of cheese during ripening is fundamental to accelerate the creation of a rind, protect against mould growth, reduce the drying-out of the cheese, and speed-up fermentation processes.
After the brine bath, some varieties of cheese are coated with wax or latex coatings to protect against mould growth on the outside of the cheese, to make the handling of cheeses easier and to provide a presetable appearance.
Different micro-organisms that grow on food products may be harmful and cause spoilage through flavour, taste or smell deviation. But apart from spoiling, pathogenic bacteria and moulds may produce toxins harmful to the human body.
Based on innovation systems, DSM Food Specialties has developed effective preservatives to ensure the delivery of clean and safe food products.
Antibiotic residue tests
The use of tests for the detection of antibiotic residues safeguards against the financial and brand damage, ensures your products conform to the highest safety and quality standards, and prevents eventual conflicts between the producer and the processor.
A comprehensive antibiotic residue testing solution for milk allows to reduce waste and ensure high quality of products.
In view of the above, DSM Food Specialties, a Dutch company, has developed Delvotest Accelerator, a fastest broad spectrum microbiological test for the detection of antibiotic residues in milk.
Cheese ripening film
DSM Food Specialties has developed Pack-Age™, an innovative film with breathable membranes for the natural ripening of cheese.
