The taste and texture of many foods we consume daily are often improved by enzyme technology. Our food enzymes are used in all aspects of foods, from dairy products, seasonings, alcoholic beverages to bread products. Amano enzymes can also be used to improve the quality of tea in many ways. Such as enhancing the flavor/aroma and boosting the yield of tea extract, along with reducing bitterness for tea beverages.

With our commitment as the world’s number one “speciality” enzyme producer, Amano Enzyme will enhance the joy and satisfaction of eating and contribute greatly to the development of meal culture worldwide.

Supplemental enzymes can make it easier for us to obtain the nutrients we’re eating food. There are many ways in which enzymes can improve consumer health—from average consumers, to serious athletes, to consumers with unique health issues.

Our skilled staff can handle a variety of applications and formulations in the dietary and supplement industy with a focus on the benefits in digestion. In this regard, our formulations are geared to both an athlete seeking to maximize nutrient intake from their food, to simply someone trying to lose weight.

Our Medical Enzyme Division is continuously working on the development and marketing of enzymes for pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biocatalysis applications. Amano Enzyme launched the enzyme business with malt diastase for pharmaceutical application. A wide range of our products serve as biocatalysts and are widely used in Japan for digestive aid products, anti-inflammatory enzyme preparations, and diagnostic kits.

Many of our digestive enzymes are core products of our line which are accepted by leading pharmaceutical companies in the world as principle active ingredients for gastrointestinal products.

Enzymes are used in the food, agricultural, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as for chiral synthesis to control and speed up reactions in order to quickly and accurately obtain a valuable final product. Enzymes are also increasingly being used in the production of biofuels and biopolymers. The enzymes can be harvested from microbial sources or can be made synthetically. At Amano, we are continually upgrading and striving to expand this category to the benefit of our customer base worldwide.
