CONTRACT PROCESSING SERVICES
At Austflavor we have been providing processing services to the domestic wine and beverge industries for more than 25 years, using state of the art equipment, managed by experienced winemakers and food technologists, to ensure the desired results for our customers
Dealcoholisation through our spinning cone column allows the removal of alcohol to < 0.5%.
By drawing the wine into super fine layers for efficient vapourisation, our new technology allows us to remove alcohol at lower temperatures than ever before .
The key contributors to the high quality of our concentrates are the low temperatures and short heating time of our new CT12 evaporator. For those customers that would prefer to supply their own juice we are happy to offer contract evaporation services. We concentrate juices up to 68.5 Brix (or as per customer specifications) and return, along with condensate, to sender.
Using a combination of the dealcoholisation, evaporation and ion exchanging processes we are able to reduce the VA on a wine by up to 60%.
We are able to stabilise both red and white juices through the use of our cation exchange columns.
Acid ion exchange is also available for adjustment of pH and TA.
The thermoflash allows us to extract maximum colour into our red juice. Heating the must and injecting into partial vacuum causes the explosion of phenolic containing skin cells. This method of juice extraction also has benefits in laccase control.
At this moment we are installing new aseptic packing equipment allowing us to package juice or concentrate that can be stored and shipped without the need for freezing.
