Why are Food Enzymes Important?

Food enzymes play an important role in improving food quality and structural properties, enhancing food flavor and nutritional value, and simplifying processing technology.

Facilitate Food Digestion

Food enzymes are able to digest food before the body's own digestive process begins, and even if the digestive system is impaired, food enzymes can enhance the digestion of food and the delivery of nutrients to the bloodstream.

Increasing Food Flavor

Any enzyme that affects the flavor of food is called a flavor enzyme. For example, using cream flavor enzymes in milk fat-containing chocolate, ice cream, margarine, and other foods, can make these foods enhance the flavor of cream.

Keeping Food Fresh

Food enzymes can be used to keep food fresh and prevent food spoilage. For example, antioxidant enzymes can slow down the oxidation process of food and extend the shelf life of food.

Promoting Processing

Food enzymes enhance the process of food processing and production. Enzymes can accelerate the rate of chemical reactions and reduce processing time and energy consumption.

Applications of Food Enzymes

Food enzymes are used in starch products, dairy products, baked goods, flavorings, fermented products, food additives, wine and beverage manufacturing.

  • Removal of oxygen from bottled soft drinks to reduce browning caused by oxidation.
  • Removal of pectin from fruit juices to produce clear juices.
  • Conversion of starch to sugar in alcohol production.
  • Coagulation of milk to produce cheese.
  • Removal (hydrolysis) of lactose from milk to obtain lactose-free milk.
  • Tenderization of meat products.
  • Reduction of acrylamide in cooked potato products such as frozen potato chips.

Food Enzyme Optimization Services

It is inevitable to optimize the food enzymes in order to better complete the whole development process. For food enzyme optimization, enzyme structural modifications change the catalytic mechanism, substrate specificity, stability, and other characteristics of the enzyme. Aprofood focuses on structural modification of the enzyme, such as changing the amino acid sequence of the enzyme, introducing mutations, deleting, or replacing specific functional regions, and so on.

Altering The Amino Acid Sequence

Changes in the amino acid sequence of an enzyme need to be made by gene editing. By customizing the sequence of the DNA, the amino acid sequence is in turn changed.

Introduction of Mutations

Mutations are introduced into the target DNA fragment using PCR methods, including base additions, deletions, etc. The amino acid sequence is changed after the gene is expressed.

Alteration of Specific Functional Regions

By utilizing protein engineering techniques, it is possible to alter the amino acid sequences of certain functional groups by either removing or substituting them.

Process for Our Food Enzyme Development Service

Enzyme Selection

According to the customer's requirement, we provide enzyme screening and selection to find the suitable specific enzyme.


After completing the enzyme screening, the enzyme is produced. We can optimize the production of the enzyme by improving the production conditions, formulation ratio, and other parameters in order to obtain high-quality enzyme.


After completing the customization of the enzyme, the effect and stability of the food enzyme will be evaluated in a specific condition which is set according to the application.


Based on the food enzyme stability and activity data, the enzyme is then optimized to meet the needs of the specific food product.
