APPLICATION BIOPECTINASE PLUS is a balanced complex of enzyme activities which hydrolyse pectic substances leading to depectinisation and clarification of juice.
The use of BIOPECTINASE PLUS offers the following advantages:
- treatment of the fruit will lead to rapid processing with maximum yield of both free run and total juice.
- depectinisation of juice. This results in more rapid floc formation while the lowered viscosity facilitates subsequent clarification and/or filtration.
- rapid clarification leading to reduced flavour damage from oxidation or premature fermentation.
- juice concentrates with higher Brix levels are attainable due to reduced viscosities.
DOSE RATES Recommended dose rates for BIOPECTINASE PLUS are generally between 40 - 150 ppm. Please note this should be optimised to suit your particular application.
