Preparation of pre-activated chitosan from Aspergillus niger and purified yeast hulls, Enartis Stab Micro M is designed for treatment of grapes, juice or must, where the presence of solids limits the microcidal effect of pure chitosan.
EnartisStab Micro M is effective in reducing a large number of spoilage yeast and bacteria that contaminate must and wine. It can also be used as a non-allergenic alternative to lysozyme for the control of malolactic bacteria.
White, red and rosé must: reduction of spoilage microorganism populations during prefermentative maceration, in alcoholic fermentation.
Reduction of SO2 addition: works in synergy with SO2 as antimicrobial agent during maceration.
MLF control: non-allergenic alternative to lysozyme, it can be used to reduce ML bacteria growth to delay or inhibit MLF.
Helps to control the development of microbial contamination during fining on fine lees.
Helps Saccharomyces cerevisiae dominate over non-Saccharomyces populations.
Enartis chitosan is obtained with a unique production process, which has the objective of increasing the positive charge and widening the contact surface. Activated Chitosan has a better antimicrobial effect and is able to prevent or stop the development of numerous yeasts and bacteria: Brettanomyces, Acetobacter, Zygosaccharomyces, Pediococcus, Lactobacillus and Oenococcus.
Adapting to climate change is perhaps the greatest challenge of the 21st century, it becomes therefore essential to understand how to protect must and wine. EnartisStab Micro M is the only chitosan activated through a patented process that increases the positive charge and the contact surface amplifies the antimicrobial action.
EnartisStab Micro M is microbiological and mold control in less than 24 hours, improvement of clarification and filtering, aromatic improvement, management of malolactic fermentation, enhancement of resistance to oxidation, Allergen-free alternative to lysozyme and SO2.
