LANXESS has been successfully marketing Velcorin for the beverage industry for several years. The specialty product is used both for non-alcoholic soft drinks and for wine to enable producers to comply with the stringent demands on microbiological safety. After addition to the beverage, DMDC rapidly breaks down into tiny quantities of methanol and carbon dioxide, which are, anyway, natural components of many drinks. For this reason, neither the taste, odor nor colour of the beverage is influenced.
Velcorin is highly effective, neutral to the taste, cost-efficient and beverages stabilized herewith are compatible with all known forms of packaging such as PET and glass bottles, cans, cartons and BiBs (bag-in-box). Its range of use extends from wines and fruit juice beverages to iced tea and isotonic sports drinks. Velcorin is also used in non-carbonated and carbonated flavored water.Detailed information can be found at www.velcorin.com.
