Our Levasil® BF products are used in combination with gelatin, or other vegan alternatives based on pea or soy, for clarification of wine, must and fruit juices. Levasil® colloidal silica gives a faster flocculation reaction and lower volume of more dense sediments compared to e.g. bentonite. All products recommended for wine and must applications meet the International Oenological Codex.
In beer production our Levasil® BF product is added on its own to improve flocculation. This can be done both for clarifying the wort, where it flocculates cationic species such as proteins, and to enhance flocculation of the yeast after fermentation. The formed flocs sediment fast and form a compact sediment resulting in increased productivity.
Our portfolio of Akucell® and Cekol® cellulose gums will improve the quality of numerous beverage products such as hot chocolate, fruit-flavored and protein drinks.
Our cellulose gums are multifunctional and their easy-to-tailor ability combined with cost efficient performance makes them an attractive choice for many beverage applications. Selecting the right ingredients is crucial to get the optimal composition for your product.
Ferric sodium EDTA, Ferrazone®, is a form of iron that is readily absorbed by the body, making it a safe and effective way to prevent and treat iron deficiency anemia through the fortification of food products. It is primarily used to fortify foods that are stored in dry form. Powdered drinks and ready-to-serve lemonades such as cola and beer; and functional foods like sports drinks are good targets for iron fortification with our Ferrazone® products.
Trace metals ions cause several spoilage reactions in food and beverages and degrade both quality and shelf life. Solvitar™, our high-purity food-grade chelate, forms a stable complex with the trace metal ions and prevents against undesirable food spoilage reactions without influencing taste or quality. In soft drinks, the addition of Solvitar™ products can support vitamin C stabilization and minimize color fading and flavor loss. In beer, Solvitar™ products reduces gushing and promotes clarity.
