                                        Enabling healthy diets for all

                                        Our vision for nutrition

                                        From protecting good health and providing plant- and animal-based proteins, to enabling sustainable farming methods and improving food in Africa, we’re helping to make people and the planet healthier.

                                        Fighting hidden hunger

                                        We’re putting all our nutritional science expertise to good use by helping people who are malnourished lead fuller lives. It’s a big job: worldwide, more than 800 million people are still chronically undernourished, while around two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. However, our essential micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are now fortifying the diets of approximately 100 million people every year.


                                        Antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C): Reducing food waste

                                        Antioxidants that extend shelf life

                                        If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of global greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, behind the United States and China. And the financial cost is almost as serious as the environmental one - amounting to an astounding $1 trillion each year.

                                        One way we can fight this is by tackling food spoilage - a deterioration in color, texture, smell or taste – which is what we are doing at DSM. With antioxidants like vitamins C and E, we are creating a more natural and scientifically proven solution that slows down the oxidation processes, extends the ‘shelf life’ and reduces waste. Foods that last longer after opening are great for consumers’ pockets, but also good for their health - thanks to the intrinsic health benefits of our vitamins.


                                        Africa Improved Foods

                                        Improving food in Africa

                                        One great way to improve food for people in Africa is to work with Africa Improved Foods (AIF). So, we invested in a factory in Kigali, Rwanda, that produces fortified foods for 1.5 million malnourished children and young women… every day. Soon we expect that number to hit two million people – which will reduce growth stunting in Rwandan children by 6% (from 38% to 32% by 2020) - giving tens of thousands of youngsters increased hope of fulfilling their potential in life.

                                        But that’s only part of the story. Around 300 staff members work at the factory, producing porridge flours with added milk powder, vitamins, and minerals. And all this is based on the produce of around 9,000 local farmers, working towards healthier and brighter lives for all.


                                        Pack-Age®: Increasing sustainability in cheese production

                                        Cheese ripener solution that prevents food loss

                                        How do you produce a delicious, nutritious product that lasts? Our Pack-Age? cheese ripening product offers an ingenious way of protecting the product against mold during natural ripening, thus delivering a fantastic, fresh cheese to the consumer. The science behind Pack-Age is based on a moisture-permeable, breathable membrane that eliminates the need for an inedible crust. This avoids up to 10% of the cheese being lost. What’s more, the increased packaging efficiency lowers the carbon footprint of cheese production by 10%. Good for people, planet and profit.

                                        If all the world’s naturally ripened Gouda & Parmesan cheeses were ripened with Pack-Age, we’d save 3.6 billion liters of milk; 200,000 tons less cheese would be wasted; and there would be €200 million more profit to share throughout the value chain.


                                        Taste modulator for healthy and great tasting food and beverages: ModuMax™

                                        Building indulgent but healthy flavor

                                        People are increasingly on the search for healthier food… but taste remains the decisive factor. DSM helps with creating an enjoyable taste experience with ModuMax? taste modulator from DSM, that manufacturers can add to their foods that are low on sugar, salt or saturated fat, or have additional fibers or plant proteins, whilst keeping a delicious taste, flavour and mouthfeel but without the indulgence.

                                        The result is that people everywhere can enjoy great tasting healthy foods and beverages – in everything from savory foods and dairy to fast-growing segments like sports protein drinks, meal replacement shakes, and alternative plant-based milks. A true taste of where flavor innovation is heading.


                                        Green Ocean algae-based technology

                                        Algal oil for aquaculture

                                        The positive health benefits of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA and DHA are well known, especially for cardiovascular health and cognitive development. Salmon is an excellent natural source, both for humans and salmon aquaculture – but it’s putting severe strain on wild fish numbers. Today, 17% of all wild-caught fish is used to produce fish oil and fishmeal. This is why our bright scientists teamed up with Evonik to form the Veramarisjoint venture, which uses natural marine algae as its raw material for EPA and DHA instead of fish – and has a huge impact on the health of the world’s oceans. To produce the equivalent of 1kg of algae-based Veramaris takes 60kg of wild catch.


                                        More sustainable farming

                                        Minimizing methane emissions of cattle

                                        As the world’s demand for protein like beef continues to grow, so too does the amount of methane emitted by the cows we raise. To tackle this challenge the team at DSM developed a solution that when added to dairy cattle feed reduces methane emissions by 30% - with no compromise on animal welfare, feed consumption or performance. When you consider that cows accounts for 4% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions, that’s good news for us all.


                                        CanolaPRO™: Plant-based protein

                                        New plant proteins

                                        CanolaPRO? is an innovation that has turned previously inedible rapeseed/canola into a nutrient-rich protein source for everyone.

                                        Its potential was unlocked by a new technology developed by the bright minds at DSM, using the plant-based by-streams of rapeseed oil pressing. It can be used in a variety of foods from dairy products to cereal. 


                                        Animal feed enzyme technology: RONOZYME® ProAct

                                        Animal feed that goes further

                                        In animal feed, our unique enzyme technology - such as RONOZYME? ProAct - improves the digestibility and usability of multiple ingredients, while reducing the use of finite rock phosphate and reducing nitrogen and phosphorus emissions. Our enzymes help animals digest a larger variety of corn, reducing pressure to grow specialty soy and corn crops. This also benefits the bottom line, because farmers get more value from less animal feed.
