Effect on White Grape Must of Multiflora Bee Pollen Addition during the Alcoholic Fermentation Process
AbstractThe aim of the present study was to compare and analyze the impact of using bee pollen doses (0.1, 0.25, 1, 5, 10 and 20 g/L) as activator in the alcoholic fermentation process of Palomino fino and Riesling wines. In this regard, its influence on the musts composition, the fermentative kinetics, the evolution of the populations of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the evolution of yeast-assimilable nitrogen and physico-chemical characteristics of final wines has been analyzed. Bee pollen addition produces significant increases in yeast-assimilable nitrogen and maximum yeasts population and exponential velocity reached during alcoholic fermentation. Bee pollen showed an important effect on yeast survival during the death phase. Final wines showed significantly increase in volatile acidity above doses higher than 10 g/L and Comisión Internacional de L’Eclairage parameters (CIELab), color intensity and Abs 420 nm, from 1 g/L. Therefore, pollen could be used as fermentative activator for the alcoholic fermentation of white wines applying doses below of 1 g/L. View Full-Text
