Biscuits, Crackers and Wafers

When strong flour (high protein content) is used for wafer making, the batter becomes thick and the protein partially forms lumps, which in turn clog the sieves and pouring nozzles. AB Enzymes’ special proteases produce a liquid and homogeneous batter, making it possible to manufacture wafers from any type of flour.

Weak flours (low protein content) with a weak gluten structure are most suitable for biscuit and cracker production. The dough from such flours should not shrink. By adding suitable proteases, strong flours (high protein content) can also be used.

The best enzyme for the best purpose

Our proteases are a good alternative for achieving dough relaxation similar to that with sodium sulfite, which may no longer be used in many countries. Enzymes used in biscuits, crackers and wafers are used as processing aids in the initial steps of the manufacturing process and are deactivated by the oven’s heat during baking.

VERON® W Special proteinase preparation with xylanase activity for fast liquid action of gluten in wafer batters. It reduces the batter viscosity thereby often reducing the water content by 10% compared to untreated batter. This gives considerable savings in energy and improved quality and production safety.

VERON® L10 Liquid proteinase preparation based on papain for the production of biscuits and crackers. The enzyme hydrolyzes the gluten structure to such an extent that the dough loses its elastic properties, is easy to laminate and does not shrink.

VERON® HPP is typically used to manufacture long-life confectionery products. VERON® HPP reduces dough resting times and improves dough extensibility and dough handling in biscuit and cracker production. The quality of the final products is better, e.g., a pleasant brown color, a smooth surface, round edges and the desired packaging size and weight.
