Project mission

The project focuses on the development of an alternative strategy devoted to the healthier and most cost-effective production of specific enzymes to be used in the dairy field. The major advantage of this method consists in the definition of a new formulation that isn’t based on animal resources but still maintain the standards of high quality and diversity of products made of natural enzymes. In order to reach that goal, the heterologous expression method will be implemented, implying first of all the isolation of encoding genes in the dairy sector. Secondly, the optimization of cell culture is needed in order to develop the co-expression in a single cell of different recombinant enzymes, leading to the promotion of process innovation in the production of diary food.
