Food Improvement Agents

Food additives, food enzymes and food flavourings are also known as "food improvement agents".

Why add food additives, enzymes and flavourings to food?

  • Among others, food additives preserve, colour and stabilise food during its production, packaging or storage.
  • Enzymes have specific biochemical actions which serve technological purposes at any stage of the food chain
  • Flavourings give or change the odour or taste to food
