Ammonium Sulfate in the wine industry

Due to its ammonium nitrogen content, Ammonium Sulfate is a very common additive used in wine production. The nitrogen is needed in the biosynthesis process of the yeast.

ASpure® Food is increasingly used in the wine industry. Respectable wine producers are more and more searching for a safe and reliable source of Ammonium Sulfate. ASpure® Food complies with the International Oenological Codex and FSSC22000 regulations – making it a future proof and worry-free option.

Ammonium Sulfate in baking

ASpure® Food is the first choice for the European baking industry. Bakeries use ASpure® Food because it’s very versatile.

In doughs, ASpure® Food functions as a dough conditioner or dough strengthener. It improves the fermentation capacity of yeast and supplies nitrogen, which can easily be used by yeast for protein building and thus multiplication. The extra nitrogen for yeast growth and consumption promotes the consistency, volume, crumb and shelf life of the product.

ASpure® Food also moderates the pH fluctuations that result from conversion of sugar to carbon dioxide by yeast activity. In the end product, ASpure® Food has a mild salty taste and can be recognized by its European food additive number E517.
