DSM Food Specialties Identifies Positive Synergies in Wine Ingredients


DSM Food Specialties, a world leader in beverage enzymes, has identified synergies between key products in its portfolio of wine making ingredients which includes yeast, yeast-derived products and enzymes. DSM Food Specialties now offers ingredient combinations which, when used together, interact in ways that enhance or magnify one or more effects, or even create new beneficial effects. Simply defined, the result obtained through these synergies is superior to that of using each product alone.

DSM Food Specialties uses its unique technical insight into oenological yeast and enzymes to improve specific aspects of a wine’s profile. The sequential action of its Rapidase®(1) Maxifruit enzyme and Fermicru®(2) XL yeast, for example, allows for the production of fruitier red wines with enhanced mouthfeel and improved colour stability. For white wines with thiols precursors, the recently introduced Rapidase Expression works particularly well in synergy with Collection Cépage Sauvignon yeast for a green varietal character. Alternatively, when combined with Fermicru 4F9, the synergy delivers a fruitier, more tropical profile.

An effective solution to the challenge of stuck or sluggish fermentation is also available through the interactive effect of DSM Food Specialties’ fructophilic yeast, Fermichamp®(3) , and the highly adsorbant, low odour detoxifying yeast hull Extraferm®(4) . When used together, these ingredients enable a fresh fermentation start until dryness.

DSM Food Specialties is a leading manufacturer and supplier of ingredients for the wine industry. Developed by winemaking experts in close contact with leading oenological universities and institutes, the company produces and supplies a complete range of specially designed wine biotechnology ingredients for selected oenological applications. Whether producing bulk or super premium wines, DSM Food Specialties’ enzymes, wine yeasts and fermentation aids provide solutions tailored to any winemaking style.
