Modern dishwashing detergents face increasing consumer demands for efficient cleaning of all tableware. As cleanness is the main criterion for dishwashing detergents, enzymes are a key ingredient for effectively removing difficult and dried on soils from dishes and leaving glassware shiny.

Enzymes clean well in mild conditions and therefore prevent degradation of glassware, ensuring the sparkling dishes that consumers demand wash after wash.

In addition, enzymes also enable environmentally friendly, phosphate free detergents. Phosphates have been used in the dishwashing detergents to get dishes clean, but they harm the aquatic environment and are increasingly being banned in detergents around the world. Detergent manufacturers can replace phosphates with a multienzyme solution that provides the same excellent cleaning performance.

Proteases and amylases are used to remove soils.
