Ripening Enzyme: Market outlook
In today’s world, consumers are looking for consistent and well-defined flavors, satisfying texture and an alluring appearance of the food products. Continuous competition between cheese manufacturers is making manufacturers regularly improve their process to get the finest possible yield which helps them to differentiate their cheeses with others. Manufacturers are using ripening enzymes also known as ripening cultures that have a unique property that simplify the production of different variety of cheese with permissive flavors and the prospect to renew customers’ interest in existing product lines by introducing new life into them. Ripening enzymes are used to improve the efficiency of the cheese by extending the shelf life of the products, along with adding flavor and texture to the product. Ripening enzyme accelerates the release of amino acids and small peptides in the milk during the ripening process, and the accelerated action causes an early release of the flavor component of the cheese resulting in enhanced sensorial properties. The ripening enzymes result in faster ripening time with a smaller environmental footprint. Ripening enzymes also act upon bitter peptides present in the cheese and hence reduces bitterness in cheese and optimizing the flavor content of the same.
