What are enzymes?
Enzymes are proteins – primary components of all living organisms: microorganisms, plants, animals and humans. They act as catalysts, which means that they make biochemical reactions happen faster than they would otherwise. Without enzymes, those reactions simply would not occur or would run too slowly to sustain life. For example, without enzymes, digestion would be impossible.
AMFEP has elected Marianne Dessen-Mugniot from AB ENZYMES as its new President. She succeeds Henk Aalten from DSM who had been President of the Executive Committee for the last 2 years.
