Looking for a kosher and halal-certified cysteine for bakery goods?

WACKER is the only commercial manufacturer in the world to produce cysteine from purely vegetarian-grade
raw materials
by our patented fermentation process.

This means that our cysteine is not only certified for vegetarian,
and halal-compliant food, but also carries absolutely no risk of TSE/BSE.

Our cysteine is used, for example, as a processing auxiliary to make
baked goods
. Cysteine causes the disulfide bridges in gluten to break down, making
the dough softer and easier to knead
