VICANT SBX

VICANT SBX (SBX511) is a new generation of highly effective, multi-component beer anti-oxidant designed to give maximum protection against the oxidative deterioration of beer in the package. It is a beige powder that is soluble in water.

Benefits:

  • Improved organoleptic stability
  • Protection against color development/browning
  • Improved wort filtration
  • Protection against haze formation

Recent research has highlighted the importance of controlling oxidation during the initial stages of the brewing process as these reactions can result in oxidative deterioration in final packaged beer. An understanding of the biochemical reactions involved in the formation of the precursors of molecules involved in the oxidative deterioration (flavor, haze, color) of beer has allowed Lallemand Brewing scientists to formulate a new product that specifically targets the biochemical reactions that result in the production of these harmful precursors. VICANT SBX acts by:

  • Inhibiting LOX activity, minimizing the production of staling aldehydes
  • Chelating metal ions (Fe/Cu) which catalyze the production of reactive oxygen
  • species (ROS) so reducing non-enzymatic autoxidation of unsaturated fatty acids
  • Binding with thiol (-SH) proteins
  • Preventing Maillard reactions in wort and in final beer to eliminate color change

TREATMENT RATES

  • 5 – 10 g/hl of wort
