Danisco’s LysoMax oil, an enzyme solution, increases the yield during vegetable oil refining by improving the release of oil from the gum, a viscous fraction obtained from treatment of crude vegetable oil with hot water. The method has no negative impact on oil quality and does not require investments in equipment. At the same time, it allows food producers to reduce the processed water by 50%.
Danisco’s LysoMax oil is used as a first step in the refining process and is simple to use. The enzymes are added to the water flow during the oil refining process. The process is carried out at 55ºC. According to Danisco, the LysoMax oil is sustainable in terms of water and energy consumption.
