DSM Food Specialties, a global science-based company, has launched Maxilact Smart, which it says is the fastest lactase enzyme on the market.

Lactose-free is one of the fastest growing segments in dairy, creating new opportunities for dairy producers, while driving the need for a faster and more efficient production process.

Merel Roes, business manager milk enzymes at DSM, said Maxilact Smart will enable its customers to grow their businesses with premium, lactose-free products.

“Customers have confirmed in their trials that Maxilact Smart enables a double-digit increase in production efficiency by enabling faster production, meaning more throughput in less time,”​ Roes said.

Latest in range

Maxilact Smart is the latest addition to DSM’s Maxilact range of lactase enzymes.

The new enzyme is suitable for a variety of applications including milk and fresh dairy.

DSM said it is easy to implement in production, and can be added before or after heat treatment. As it positively impacts production efficiency by enabling faster production, it contributes to sustainability objectives as well.

DSM was the first to commercialize lactase in 1964, and is the leading lactase supplier in the world.
