BELOIT, Wis.— Kerry, a world chief in style and diet, is happy to introduce two new sustainable plant-based processing aids for enhancing beer high quality, enhancing course of effectivity and delivering value financial savings in brewing. These merchandise, Biofine Eco and FermCap Eco, are a part of Kerry’s new Eco Vary household of plant-based and sustainable brewing options, a group of instruments designed to assist brewers create exceptionally consumer-friendly beers whereas lowering their impression on the atmosphere.
Biofine Eco is an assist that tremendously improves beer clarification, whereas FermCap Eco is a foam-control product that optimises course of effectivity by rising fermenter capability, enhancing hop utilization and eliminating over foaming and beer waste. The merchandise ship vital advantages, offering clear, environmentally pleasant and value saving options for brewers globally.
Commenting on the brand new brewing options, Deborah Waters, PhD, Product Director Brewing Components, Kerry mentioned: “We’re proud to introduce Biofine Eco and FermCap Eco which have been particularly designed as environmentally pleasant options to exchange conventional fining and antifoam choices with plant-based options. These modern substances are higher for the planet and the manufacturing course of by enhancing the beer high quality, rising manufacturing efficiencies, lowering carbon footprint and rising throughput.
“They’re additionally appropriate with each membrane and crossflow filtration, confirmed to cut back membrane fouling and being plant-based processing aids, are interesting to the vegan client. The Eco Brewing Vary is a results of Kerry’s dedication to scrub and environmentally pleasant brewing options.”
About Biofine Eco
Biofine Eco is a brand new, modern, allergen-free, plant-derived clarification assist that tremendously improves beer clarification by delivering virtually on the spot flocculation of yeast. It really works effectively each with and and not using a centrifuge and has been developed as a chemical and allergen-free different to conventional clarification aids.
A constant performer, Biofine Eco delivers a extra compact yeast sedimentation, removes haze throughout the brewing course of and is extra economical to make use of. It’s a pure, plant-based product that delivers two invaluable brand-building advantages: sustainability advances and the flexibility for brewers to provide beer with vegan-friendly claims.
Biofine Eco has been discovered to shortly scale back turbidity, outperforming conventional brewery fining choices. It additionally improves beer restoration and enhances product high quality. In its work to optimise course of efficiencies, Biofine Eco leaves no impression on flavour or beer foam. Importantly, by means of focused binding of a number of haze-forming actions, Biofine Eco produces a compact sediment that delivers simple cleansing and reduces the price of disposal.
About FermCap Eco
FermCap Eco is an modern, plant-based, foam-control product that optimises course of efficiencies by rising fermenter capability, eliminating overfoaming and enhancing hop utilization, in addition to enhancing beer foam stability. It’s appropriate with crossflow membrane filtration and extends filter run size and membrane life considerably. FermCap Eco delivers as much as 15% improve in fermenter capability versus untreated beer. When in comparison with conventional antifoam, FermCap Eco reduces cleaning-in-place (CIP) time and frequency, and permits longer filter run lengths with out membrane fouling.
FermCap Eco is a processing assist that has been developed to be a extra sustainable different to conventional silicon-based antifoam merchandise, particularly when crossflow filtration is used. Along with maximising fermentation vessel capability and rising CO2 restoration whereas lowering wort losses, FermCap Eco shouldn’t be delicate to chilly temperature storage. This final characteristic offers an necessary logistical benefit for freight and storage within the Northern Hemisphere throughout colder months.
The optimised course of efficiencies delivered by FermCap Eco embrace elevating fermenter capability by lowering foam top by as much as 15% within the vessel. FermCap Eco additionally enhances hop (alpha-acid) utilisation by as much as 10% whereas maximising CO2 restoration and lowering costly wort losses
