The oenological interest of fumaric acid: Stop malolactic fermentation and preserve the freshness of wines
(EDP Sciences, 2019-10-23)
ABSTRACT One of the problems related to the increase in average temperatures in the wine-growing regions is the lower accumulation of organic acids in the berries. Wine freshness depends to a great extent on its acidity. ...
Biodegradable foam tray based on starches isolated from different Peruvian species
ABSTRACT Starch was isolated from three Andean-native crops — arracacha (Arracacia xanthorrhiza), oca (Oxalis tuberosa), and sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) — for use as a raw material for the production of foam trays. The ...
