Granulated pectinase with high content of secondary activities, developed for the cold settling and pre-flotation of “difficult to depectinize” grapes.
Ideal for: Settling of Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Malvasia, Ehrenfelser and Muller Thurgau juice
· Improved settling and filtration of difficult to depectinase grapes
· Increased yield
Varietals like Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Malvasia, Muller Thurgau, are all characterized by their high content in ramified pectins, and so called “hairy spots”. These ramifications of the polygalacturonic acid molecule (pectin) are much harder to process than regular ones. Secondary activities such as arabinase and rhamnosidase are key ingredients that allow this enzyme to quickly depectinize the most challenging varietals. These secondary activities are all encoded on the DNA of the Aspergillus niger producing the enzyme, thanks to the inducers applied during the solid phase fermentation system in our production plant in Paris.
Utilization: Dissolve directly in 20-30 parts of non-sulfurized must or de-mineralized water and add to must or directly onto the grapes. The activity of Endozym Muscat is reduced by lower temperatures. If the grapes aren’t too rich in phenolics, the product can be added directly into the receiving line, thus allowing for good contact time with must before refrigeration. Precaution needs to be taken in order to avoid the enzyme coming into contact with high dosage levels of SO2 or bentonite.
Dosage: 20-40 grams per ton of grape depending on contact time, temperature and SO2 content.
Shelf life and storage: Endozym Muscat is stable at room temperature for at least two years, with a loss lower than 5% per year starting from the third year.
Packaging: 500g vacuum sealed cans
