Tartaric Stability of Wines by Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC)
Apr 23, 2014
The effect of CMC on tartaric stability of wines was studied in this paper . The results showed t hat the most proper viscosity of CMC on tartaric stability is lower 100 mpa_s, and the degree of substitute ( D. S) is higher 1. 0 .
The addition doses of 200mg/ L of CMC on a variety of different wines gives rise to a low and longlasting tartaric stability ,not affected by heat, bunching, filtr ation and also without organoleptic effects.
The quality of wines, especially the color of red w ines, was improved after months. A hypothesis explaining the mechanism for this vegetal polymer is described.
