ABV AROMAZYME is a food-grade enzyme preparation with a strong glycosidase activity derived from a selected strain of Aspergillus niger. It is composed of β-glucosidase enzymes that are capable of hydrolyzing the glycosidic bonds, liberating monoterpene alcohol compounds, and glucose. It has been developed to increase the complexity of the hop aroma and flavor profile in beer. The application of ABV AROMAZYME during fermentation provides brewers with the opportunity to improve their hop utilization by releasing additional volatile aroma compounds, thereby decreasing overall hop quantities or using less sophisticated hop varieties.
- Increases the diversity of hop flavours and aroma by changing the ratio
of specific terpene compounds
- Enhances the beer mouthfeel and drinkability by reducing unpleasant,
- Slightly increases wort fermentability
- Expresses more character from less sophisticated hop varieties
