Bentgel

Sodium-activated bentonite that can be used on all types of musts and wines, particularly on wines that are of particular value and difficult to stabilize, or that may be affected by overly aggressive interventions.
Bentgel is a high-quality sodium-activated bentonite made from the purest and most carefully selected raw material. This product undergoes an additional activation process that enhances its natural performance, greatly improving its dispersing power and colloidal properties. This, in turn, increases the effectiveness of Bentgel in the clarification stage. Some of the main benefits of Bentgel:

  • Deproteinizing action: Bentgel is known for its exceptional ability to remove unwanted proteins in musts and wines, contributing significantly to protein stabilization.
  • Low doses of use: this product requires extremely low doses to achieve effective results, which results in minimal amounts of deposits.
  • Easy dispersion: Bentgel is easily dispersed in the working environment, simplifying the addition process.
  • Minimal inert content: the product has minimal inert content, ensuring pure deproteinizing action without contamination.
  • Absence of foreign odors or flavors: Bentgel does not release foreign odors or flavors into wines, preserving their organoleptic characteristics.


Bentgel is particularly suitable for use on a wide range of musts and wines, with particular effectiveness on high-quality and difficult to stabilize products. Due to its exceptional deproteinizing power, Bentgel is also suitable for use in microdoses, allowing precise control during the clarification process.

Montmorillonite (bentonite) clay: 90%
Compounds derived from silica: 0-10%

10-40 g/hl.
Preliminary laboratory tests are recommended, checking deproteinizing power (bentotest) and decolorizing function (DO420 and DO520).
Also proceed with an organoleptic test.

  1. Disperse Bentgel in cold water (1:15 ratio) with vigorous agitation until a homogeneous suspension is obtained.
  2. Let the solution (gel) stand for a few hours (a minimum of about 6 to 12 hours).
  3. Stir again.

0.250 kg and 1 kg bag, 10 kg bag.
Store in a cool, dry place.
