Danisco A/S is a Danish bio-based company with activities in food production, enzymes and other bioproducts as well as a wide variety of pharmaceutical grade excipients. It was formed in 1989 from the largest Danish industrial merger ever of the two old C.F. Tietgen companies Danish Sugar , and Dansk Handels- og Industri Company .Danisco was one of the world's leading producers of ingredients for food and other consumer products and was also one of the biggest sugar producers in Europe until the divestment of its sugar division to Nordzucker in 2009.Headquartered in Copenhagen, the group has approximately 6,800 employees in more than 80 locations in 40 countries.Danisco shares were listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange and a member of the blue chip OMX Copenhagen 20 index until June 2011, when DuPont completed a US$6.3 billion acquisition of the company.

Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-01-18

Provided herein are variants of Buttiauxella sp. phytases that may be used in industrial applications including methods for starch liquefaction, alcohol fermentations and for enhancing phosphate digestion in foods and animal fees.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-05-17

The present disclosure relates to endo-beta-mannanases from Paenibacillus and Bacillus spp., polynucleotides encoding such endo-beta-mannanases, compositions containing such mannanases, and methods of use thereof. Compositions containing such endo-beta-mannanases are suitable for use as detergents and cleaning fabrics and hard surfaces, as well as a variety of other industrial applications.

Provided herein are variants of Buttiauxella sp. phytases that may be used in industrial applications including methods for starch liquefaction, alcohol fermentations and for enhancing phosphate digestion in foods and animal feeds.


A conversion process provides using different co-cultured cell lines to express different sets of enzymes catalyzing the same process. For example, in a Simultaneous Saccharification and Co-Fermentation (SSCF) process, a starch substrate is converted to alcohol by contacting the substrate with yeast and Aspergillus niger cells. Because A. niger expresses an endogenous glucoamylase and alpha-amylase, these enzymes do not need to be added during the SSCF process.


Aspects of the present disclosure are drawn to methods of improving the expression of secreted cuproenzymes from host cells by manipulating the expression level of one or more proteins involved in copper transport in the host cell, e.g., membrane-bound copper transporting ATPases and soluble copper transporters. The present disclosure also provides compositions containing such improved host cells as well as products derived from the improved host cells that contain one or more cuproenzymes of interest.


The present invention provides methods for protein engineering. Specifically, the invention provides methods utilizing site evaluation libraries to design libraries that optimize two or more properties of a protein. The present invention also provides variant subtilisins suitable for various uses.


The present invention provides a method for producing an alcohol comprising: (a) admixing a tripeptidyl peptidase, predominantly having exopeptidase activity, with a feedstock or a fraction thereof before, during or after fermentation of said feedstock or a fraction thereof; and (b) recovering an alcohol. Also provided are uses of a tripeptidyl peptidase and by-products of alcohol production obtainable by the method of the invention.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-01-25

The present disclosure relates to serine proteases cloned from Bacillus spp., and variants thereof. Compositions containing the serine proteases are suitable for use in cleaning fabrics and hard surfaces, as well as in a variety of industrial applications.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-07-12
