Are your wine additives the real thing?

Are you taking advantage of the inexpensive wine additives such as DAP or tartaric acid available this vintage? Not sure whether what you’re getting is the real deal? AWRI Commercial Services can give you confidence by testing wine additives for compliance with either the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) or the product’s Certificate of Analysis.

Testing to basic FCC requirements ensures your raw material is not contaminated and meets the purity specifications required for food ingredients, safeguarding public health and ensuring you don’t contaminate your wine.

The current suite of additive analyses covers DAP, ascorbic acid, citric acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, PMS, PVPP, potassium sorbate and potassium carbonate. For further information please contact
