Essential® Enzymes North America

Clean label enzyme-based baking solutions for tolerance, performance and overall baking quality

The trend towards natural ingredients continues to build momentum. Today’s consumers are more label-sensitive than ever before, and government and regulatory groups are acting to restrict or limit the use of many ingredients.




Our portfolio of Essential® solutions is composed of proprietary enzyme-based blends formulated without any artificial additives or preservatives and with built-in tolerance to avoid overdosing.


All our Essential® enzyme-based baking solutions are

  • Designed for convenience, ease of use and dosing in replacing the functionality of less label friendly ingredients and fast acting oxidizers.
  • Can be used to improve dough machinability, conditioning, strengthening and stability.
  • When used appropriately, they can also contribute significant time, energy and water savings, extend shelf-life and minimize waste management.
