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.

Improved flavor stability.

Improved colloidal stability.

Slower rate of browning.

A treatment rate is typically in the range of 2-3 g/hl.
