M2 and M8 yeast lysates (refining products)
At LEV2050 we have many types of products developed through our R&D Department, looking for innovative and biosustainable solutions for the food chain. Today we are going to talk about two products created especially for the refinement of finished wines: the M2 and M8 yeast lysates.
M2 and M8 are Non-Saccharomyces yeast lysates with differential cell wall protein and polysaccharide compositions. They can be used as organic nutrition in fermentation or as refinement of finished wines, helping to reduce aggressive sensations, bitterness and astringency.
First of all, the M2 lysate consists of a yeast lysate from a strain very rich in parietal polysaccharides. This product is recommended for white, red, rosé and sparkling wines.
It improves the sensation of sweetness and volume. It also reduces aggressive sensations, bitterness and astringency.
Regarding its dose of use, it is between 0.05ml – 0.3ml per litre of wine. Maximum dosage is 0.5 ml per litre of wine.
Secondly, the M8 lysate consists of a yeast lysate from a strain that is very rich in a higher percentage of parietal proteins. At LEV2050, we recommend this product for red wines.
It improves the structural sensation. Like the M2 lysate, the M8 lysate also reduces aggressive sensations, bitterness and astringency.
Its normal dose of use is between 0.05ml – 0.3ml per litre of wine. The maximum dosage is 0.5 ml per litre of wine.
The method of use of both lysates is simple. Here are the steps to follow:
- Shake the container to homogenise the content
- Add to the wine to be treated
- Homogenise and leave to act for 5-6 days
- Filter before bottling
