Eggs provide valuable functional ingredients to the food processing
industry and enzymes can make the quality of those functional
ingredients even better. From ensuring dried egg white remains
white to improving the emulsification properties of egg yolk.
At Biocatalysts, all your enzyme requirements can be satisfied -
we can be your one-stop shop.

Our products & applications include:

Lyso-lecithin manufacture –
Convert the Phospholipids in egg yolk into lyso-lecithin with our Phospholipase A2
Lipomod™ 699L (non GMO). Lipomod™ 699L is a specific A2 enzyme and will give
100% hydrolysis. It produces a vastly superior emulsifier compared to those made with
microbial A1/A2 enzyme products.

Prevent egg white browning –
With Glucose oxidase 168L. Make sure your dried egg whites stay white.

Remove yolk lipid contamination –
From egg white with Lipomod™ 34P. A very high potency lipase which is used at a
very low dose rate and is very cost effective.

                     Having a high quality, distinctively flavoured food product can be the key to being market leader.
                     Having the same flavour as someone else creates a me-too product of low value. Creating high
                     quality, distinctive flavours with enzymes is a main skill of Biocatalysts and the key here is distinctive.
                     Biocatalysts’ focus on custom tailored products means that we can help you develop a unique flavour

                     our enzymologists understand the biochemical production of flavours and by combining these skills
                     with our customers’ flavour knowledge, a winning combination for flavour development is created.

                           Wine, fresh fruit salad, beer, vegetable juices etc are all natural
                           products that are made with the assistance of enzymes.
                           Enzymes are used for a variety of reasons including increasing
                           yield, reducing filtration problems, increasing factory throughput,
                           reducing waste or improving the quality of the final product.
                           Fruit and vegetable processing would be slow and inefficient
    P R O C E S S I N G

                           without enzymes. For example, carrot juice manufacture would
                           take longer, use more energy and produce more waste; so the
                           non-enzymatic process would be economically unviable and
                           environmentally unfriendly.

                        Protein hydrolysis is conducted in many industries for a range of applications. Hydrolysis of proteins
                        can be used to create human flavour products such as yeast extract or to aid the extraction of
                        valuable pharmaceuticals like heparin or chondroitin sulphate and many other applications. Protein
                        substrates are complex, unlike carbohydrates that might have only one or two repeating bonds,
                        proteins have 20 different amino acids which can give 400 bond pairs. In addition to that, proteins
                        fold into complex 3D structures with a different amino acid composition on the surface compared to
                        the interior. Enzymes are proteins and are fairly resistant to protease digestion. Owing to the complex
                        nature of proteins it is very difficult to reach high degrees of hydrolysis (DH). For some applications a
                        high DH is not required anyway eg functional protein production. But for protein solubilisation, savoury
                        flavour production and pharmaceutical extraction, a much higher DH is required, usually above 30.

                        job adequately. So whilst a low-price                 specifically for the digestion of
                        standard protease will also achieve some              collagenous material. It gives
