Ground-breaking innovations in the coagulant space are rare but Chr. Hansen, the world’s leading producer of coagulation solutions, is committed to constantly raising the industry standard for performance.


Says Soeren Herskind, vice president, Commercial Development, Chr. Hansen: “We understand the challenges of modern cheesemakers who are under pressure to generate maximum value, increase flexibility, and meet customer demand for better functionality and convenient cheese formats. To accommodate those needs, we are delighted to bring our newest innovation to the market.”


CHY-MAX Supreme is the third generation of the CHY-MAX fermentation produced chymosin (FPC) range of coagulants and a result of five years of intensive research. It helps cheesemakers deliver a greater commercial return by offering:

• Higher yield

Produces up to one percent more cheese over the market leading coagulant without compromising whey quality

• Faster and more precise production

Processes more milk and cheese in less time

• Superior functionality

Better slicing and grating of cheese with reduced giveaways and controlled protein breakdown over time

Small change – big difference


Adds Herskind: “With a small but crucial change to our renowned CHY-MAX enzyme, we are making a big difference across cheese production and functionality for Cheddar, Continental or Pasta Filata/Mozzarella cheese types.


“CHY-MAX Supreme maximises value by allowing the cheesemaker to produce considerably more cheese out of the same amount of milk. A one percent yield increase of global cheese production means more than 220 million kg more cheese without more milk to the vats. That is enough to satisfy the yearly cheese consumption of 15 million American consumers! The benefits also enable our customers to reduce their environmental footprint and go hand in hand with the increased focus on sustainability. As such, this global launch is a good example of the type of sophisticated solutions that recently secured Chr. Hansen’s recognition by Corporate Knights* as the world’s most sustainable company.” For more visit
