ABV ALPHA ACETOLACTATE DECARBOXYLASE

ABV Alpha Acetolactate Decarboxylase is a decarboxylase enzyme which prevents the formation of diacetyl by the decarboxylation of alpha-acetolactate to acetoin, and is derived from Bacillus lincheniformis

 

BENEFITS

Reduces cold conditioning time.
Prevents formation of diacetyl.
