Because APM is an excellent high-intensity sweetener, especially in its taste, demand for it will grow in the future, and APM will gradually become a commodity chemical. The drive for cost reductions will therefore increase. Although alternative production methods have been proposed, their yields are lower than the current, conventional production methods. The current processes will therefore continue to be used while attempts to improve them are ongoing. I focused on the reduction of enzyme costs to advance enzymatic APM production because the condensation by thermolysin is a key step of the production process used by Holland Sweetener Company. Enzymatic APM production processes will be further improved in many ways.
