When enzymes are engineered for peak performance — as they are at Codexis — the result is unsurpassed purity, diminished waste and reduced environmental impact. The efficiency, selectivity and specificity of optimized enzymes are the key properties that make them especially useful in food & beverage production. Codexis’ engineered enzymes may enable you to reduce cycle times, increase yields and improve product quality and cost-efficiency.
A real-life example
Leading food industry supplier Tate & Lyle sought a healthier ingredient that would meet demanding caloric and sensory targets in addition to fulfilling requirements for speed of commercialization, safety and production cost.
Using the proprietary CodeEvolver® platform, Codexis worked with Tate & Lyle to engineer an enzyme that could meet the company’s goals and enable a simple, cost-efficient production process. Commercial targets were met in seven months and the resulting enzyme produced a 70-fold enzyme activity improvement under challenging process conditions and a 90 percent cost reduction.
