With 100 years of expertise in bread making,  Puratos was the first company to launch a complete bread improver in 1953: T500, in paste form. We continuously optimized our formulas, and in 1975 S500 was born, a powder improver.  This allowed us to reach more bakers around the world, helping them to make even better breads. Thanks to our unique enzyme technology, coming from Antarctics, S500 can bring breads ultimate tolerance. This enzyme is at the heart of the S500 formula, allowing you to bake with consistent great results, batch after batch.
