Cellulose Microcristalline

Cellulose Microcristalline


Fining agents for musts


The microcrystalline cellulose is a partially depolymerised purified cellulose. It is produced by the acid treatment of alpha cellulose extracted solely from non-resinous wood of guaranteed non-GM origin.

Microcrystalline Cellulose is totally insoluble in musts and is therefore defined as a technological additive with regard to legislation. Classified by the OIV in the fermentation activator category, microcrystalline cellulose cannot be used to compensate for a nutritional deficiency of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, but its ability to detoxify the medium by facilitating the nucleation of CO2 ensures a proper process of alcoholic fermentation. 

Application fields
Microcrystalline Cellulose can be used for two purposes :
  • Correction of the turbidity level of an over-racked must
  • Detoxification of the medium through a capacity to significantly improve the emission of carbon dioxide during alcoholic fermentation and so improve the quality of yeast fermentation.
Dose d'emploi : 
From 5g/hL to 60g/hL according to the required level of turbidity correction
Conditionnement : 
20 kg
