Improve Baked Goods with Non-Animal L-Cysteine

More and more people are avoiding food of animal origin for health or ethical reasons. Yet, many baked goods contain non-vegan processing aids. WACKER offers the perfect solution: the first vegan L-cysteine produced by starch fermentation. It simplifies kneading and handling of dough, and thus improves the overall texture and volume of the end product.

WACKER’s L-cysteine is produced by starch fermentation and therefore has convincing advantages such as a non-human, non-animal origin. It is certified as kosher and halal and is TSE/BSE-safe.
