Food Processing

Nagase (Europa) GmbH supplies enzyme preparations produced by Nagase Viita, a consolidated subsidiary of NAGASE & CO., LTD. Nagase Viita mainly produces their enzymes by submerged fermentation of classical and self-cloned microorganism strains of the genus Streptomyces. Microorganisms belonging to the genus Streptomyces are the ubiquitously found microorganisms in soil and over 570 species of Streptomyces have been described.

Dossiers for all enzyme activities used in commercially available preparations have been submitted to EFSA for approval under the FIAP regulatory framework (Regulation (EC) No 1332/2008).

Nagase Viita has a long history and vast experience in the utilisation of Streptomyces strains for the production of unique enzyme activities that are found hardly anywhere else.  From lactase to very specific proteases to special β-glucanase for fungal beta glucans – NAGASE offers what other producers don’t.

With its specialised portfolio NAGASE is the supplier of choice for the markets of today and tomorrow.
