Vicant Beer Antioxidant

Designed to enhance flavor and colloidal stability in beer

Overview

Vicant is an anti-oxidant and anti-browning agent designed to enhance flavor and colloidal stability in beer. It is a white, crystalline powder which is fully soluble in water.

Vicant supplies sources of sulphur dioxide and ascorbate.

Principle

The active components function in two ways, by scavenging dissolved oxygen and blocking staling reactions.

Vicant slows the formation of off flavors, typically described as paper or cardboard, by binding with the causative carbonyl compounds, particularly trans-2-nonenal.

Vicant also contains oxygen scavengers. These act at different rates, the faster acts to protect the beer during pasteurization, the slower to protect during storage.
