Benefits of using microbial enzymes in the food industry
In the modern food industry, microbial enzymes are widely used. What are the benefits of using microbial enzymes?

crafts improvement

Microbial enzymes are used to soften and solidify food structure, improve separation, increase cohesion, accelerate or slow down sedimentation, or enhance the clarification process.

For example, rennet is used to produce cheese, glucanase is used to clarify beer, and papain is used to make meat tenderizers.

Quality improvement

Microbial enzymes can improve the stability of liquid and solid foods, improve their appearance, structure, shelf life and taste.

Glucose oxidase is one of the most commonly used food preservatives, it can consume oxygen, thereby inhibiting most aerobic bacteria.

Cut costs

With the help of microbial enzymes, the output of raw edible foods is increased, energy consumption is reduced, processing time is shortened, and a wider range of raw materials are allowed. 

In addition, due to the extremely low dosage of enzymes, they are used to replace additives that require much higher dosages.

The use of amylase and glucoamylase to produce starch sugars is a major advance in the history of the food industry. Since then, enzymes have been used in food processing more and more. 

Now the production of peptides, amino acids, bone peptides, xyloligosaccharides, xylitol, etc Biological enzymes are used.

Application friendly

In some cases, enzymes are used as processing aids and can be used as a substitute for additives without a statement, as long as they have no effect in the final food. 

Since their concentration in the final food is very low (in the range of a few grams per ton), they will not change the nutritional content of the food.

Exclusion of specific substances

The potentially carcinogenic acrylamide formed during baking and frying can be greatly reduced by asparaginase; other enzymes are used to avoid odors, or to make dairy products for people who are lactose intolerant to remove gluten allergies from food The original, as well as the use of enzymes to decompose the ubiquitous mycotoxins are also under study.


Some innovations can only be achieved with the help of microbial enzymes, such as cereal or soybean beverages, or organized vegetable and meat proteins.

Paragon has professional fermentation equipment for microbial enzyme production. If you are interested, you can check the official website.
