Beta Bio 45%
A clear brown liquid at room temperature, becoming more mobile when heated. Remains fluid even at 0°C.
Beta Bio 45% is produced from CO2 extract of hops. It contains predominantly the natural β-acids fraction of hops extract dissolved in food grade Propylene Glycol.
β-acids are well-known to have potent anti-microbial properties, and are particularly active against Gram positive bacteria and certain algae.
Beta Bio 45% is typically added to molasses based feed stocks for the production of yeast or alcohol at a 5ppm dose rate
Beta Bio 45% may be dosed directly into process streams or added to solid or semi- solid products in a suitable blender. When dosing into pipelines or vessels it is best to ensure that there is vigorous mixing so as to disperse the product quickly. This can be achieved by injecting into the bulk fluid at high pressure through a suitable nozzle or small bore pipe so that a high degree of turbulence is generated.
