Good to know
Enzymes are bio-based cleaning agents. They are powerful ingredients that work specifically on certain types of stains, i.e. for one type of stain there is one type of enzyme. They work as catalysts, so that each molecule works more than once.
The main enzymes in dishwashing are amylases. Amylases remove sugar and starch such as pasta, potatoes, rice, and cereals such as wheat or corn.
How do we use enzymes?
We use enzymes to remove specific stain classes, such as starch or stains from food ingredients. Cold-active enzymes, additionally, help remove stains already at low washing temperatures such as 20° or 30°C.
