Enzyme Technology

Enzymes are used in a variety of food products asadditives or tools in food processing. Marine enzymes have been used for various purposes in the food industry, including selective tissue degradation, fermentation and curing of fish, production of hydrolyzed products, extraction of pigments, coagulation of proteins and waste management.

In the food industry, as well as inorganic industries, enzymes are used to increase the process rate and since they are all natural they do not contaminate or interfere with the food after deactivation. The benefit of marine enzymes is the low temperature needed for maximum activity, which means that food process lines with heat sensitive products could in particular profit using marine enzymes.
