Potassium bicarbonate

Deacidifying agent for both musts and finished wines.
Potassium bicarbonate occurs as colorless, odorless crystals. It is a versatile chemical compound used primarily as a deacidifying agent in multiple industries, including the wine industry. Main applications include:

  • Must and wine deacidifier: potassium bicarbonate is commonly used to reduce acidity in musts and finished wines. Its special feature lies in the fact that, even when used in excessive amounts, it does not affect the color stability or organoleptic characteristics of the wine. It also reduces the pungent sensation caused by the acids in the solution.
  • Malolactic fermentation: in situations where it is necessary to promote malolactic fermentation but the pH of the wine is too low, potassium bicarbonate can be used to deacidify the wine, thus aiding the process.

Pure potassium bicarbonate (E501) (FU/BPFCC).

For the use of potassium bicarbonate, current laws in the European Community must be followed.
EU permitted deacidification: 1 g/l expressed as tartaric acid equal to 135 g/hl of potassium bicarbonate.

Add directly to the solution under stirring.

1 kg and 25 kg bag.
Store in a cool, dry place.

Here are other options:

to achieve reduction of excessive calcium content as well as tartaric stabilization

to decrease total acidity and promote a precipitation of poorly soluble salts
