Maxigum® F is a liquid solution of Gum Arabic obtained from Acacia Verek. Maxigum® F undergoes a special filtration treatment that makes it filterable. Therefore, it can be added before microfiltration. Maxigum® F is highly effective in preventing color compound precipitation, softening astringency and increasing mouthfeel structure. The free sulfur dioxide in Maxigum® F provides a long shelf-life and permits its use after microfiltration without any microbial contamination concerns.
Citrogum is a clear, almost colorless Gum Arabic preparation with a low calcium content. Citrogum is recommended for the treatment of wines ready for bottling. It integrates the colloidal content of wine, improving its balance, organoleptic features and stability, mainly tartaric. It enhances aroma, reduces bitterness and astringency, and increases softness and body. Citrogum’s low membrane blocking capacity (it’s the most filterable gum in the market!), purity and microbial stability ensure that it can be added with confidence at any stage during preparation for bottling. The sulfur dioxide in the preparation gives the product a long shelf life and enables direct addition to wine even after microfiltration without any risk of microbial contamination.
