AB Enzymes is celebrating 60 years baking enzymes: Happy Birthday VERON®


Our Story: Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow


The VERON® success story started in 1957, when we registered the brand VERON® and introduced the first microbial enzyme for the milling industry to offer a standardized and economical alternative to malt flour. In 1973, we discovered and launched the first fungal xylanases for the emerging baking ingredients industry – a milestone that changed this industry forever.

We patented a novel analytical method as a tool to assist millers in adjusting their flours to the optimum amount of fungal alpha-amylase in 1980. As a result of our commitment to the baking ingredients industry, we extended our production platforms to introduce the world’s first patented bacterial xylanase in 1993, to fulfill the increased technical requirements of the market.


We offer a comprehensive portfolio of enzymatic solutions for a versatile range of applications from wheat to rye, biscuits to pasta, and wholegrain flour systems. We fulfill growing customer demands and overcome the associated challenges for today’s baking ingredients industry and bakers.

Our global baking enzyme product range was complemented with our two youngest products, powered by the new production platform “Trichoderma”, in 2017. VERON® Hyperbake-ST has excellent application performance for cost-effective, emulsifier-free improvers, and VERON® Oxibake-ST enables the substitution of specific types of oxidizing agents and supports the baking process.
