Maxigum is a liquid solution of Gum Arabic obtained from Acacia Verek. Because of its high molecular weight and highly branched structure, Maxigum is extremely effective in preventing the precipitation of color substances in wines ready for bottling. It also improves the sensory features of wine by increasing structure and mouthfeel and reducing the astringency. The sulfur dioxide contained in this preparation ensures its microbiological stability, so it can be added following microfiltration.
Citrogum Dry is the granulated form of Citrogum. The special granulation process allows this impurity-free Gum Arabic to dissolve quickly both in water and wine without forming lumps. When dissolved, the properties of Citrogum Dry (low calcium content, solution clarity, sensory and stabilizing characteristics, filterability) are similar to those of liquid Citrogum. The applications are therefore the same.
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.
A liquid solution of Gum Arabic for the stabilization of wine aromas. During the production of Aromagum, the hydrolysis process is controlled in such a manner as to obtain a gum which is very active in intensifying the perception of fruit aromas and maintaining fresh characteristics for one year or more after bottling. When used at the recommended dosages, it only has a modest blocking effect on filtration membranes and can be added to wine before microfiltration.
Micro granulated Gum Arabic produced from Acacia Verek and certified organic in accordance with European Regulation [Reg. (EC) N° 843/2007 and Reg. (EC) N° 889/2008]. It is very effective for color stabilization of red and rosé wines.
