Plant-Based Fining Agents: Free of Animal Proteins

How to eliminate animal protein from winemaking and switch to sustainable and vegan-friendly wine production with Enartis products.

Vegan wine market is expanding: for some years now, the number of consumers looking for products which are free of animal-derived proteins has been growing considerably.

These are demanding consumers who require traceability along the entire production chain: in fact, it often happens that animal proteins are used as additives or preservatives in so-called plant-based products such as wine.
To win over this customer, it is necessary to adopt a policy of maximum transparency.
If you want to obtain vegan or plant-based certification for your wine, you must eliminate all substances that are not of vegetable origin, such as animal protein fining agents, from the production process.

Wine Clarification without Animal Protein

Clarificationis fundamental in winemaking. It is a matter of making wine clear by eliminating impurities and substances responsible for instability and organoleptic imbalance.
For years this process has been possible due to the use of proteins of animal origin, such as fish gelatin, casein and egg albumin.
Today, thanks to Enartis, you can say goodbye to animal protein for clarification and make high quality wines with entirely plant-based and allergen-free products suitable for the production of organic and vegan wines.
