NADES extraction of anthocyanins derivatives from grape pomace


Grape pomace is one of the main by-products generated after pressing in wine-making. It’s valorization through the extraction of bioactive compounds is the answer for the development of sustainable processes. Nevertheless, in the recovery of anthocyanins derivatives, the extraction stage continues to be a limiting step. The nature of the sample and the type of solvent determine the efficiency of the process. Anthocyanins are responsible for the color of grapes and wine, a characteristic that is defined by their chemical structure. The color stability in their native form is affected by factors such as pH, temperature, and their chemical structure, which could limit their use as a natural colorant in the food industry. However, there are anthocyanin-derived pigments found in wines. The main interest in these pigments is that they present greater color stability against pH changes and SO2 bleaching than native anthocyanin. Emerging methods such as ultrasound-assisted eutectic mixture extraction have a high potential due to the low toxicity, chemical inertness with water, easy preparation, and huge biodegradability. There are four types of eutectic solvents, however, the mixtures that are formed from salt and a natural component such as alcohols, sugars, and organic acids are the most used in the extraction processes of bioactive compounds. The compounds were mixed with a 1:1 molar ratio with choline chloride (ChCl) as hydrogen bond acceptor (HBA) and its corresponding hydrogen bond donor (HBD) (malic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, glucose and glycerol: urea), heated at a constant temperature of 80 °C and stirring at 700 rpm until a transparent liquid was obtained. Then the volume of distilled water corresponding to each mixture (30 % v / v) was added. The extraction was carried out in an ultrasonic bath at room temperature for 45 min. A solid-liquid ratio of 1 g of pomace per 10 ml of solvent was used. Total anthocyanins were determined using the differential pH method measured by a spectrophotometer. The highest extraction using NADES corresponds to the mixtures composed of choline chloride: glucose and choline chloride: urea: glycerol reaching a value of 4.57 and 4.36 mg eq of malvidin-3-O-glucoside /g of grape pomace respectively. On the other hand, no significant differences were found for a value of p≤0.05 between the mixtures containing citric acid and tartaric acid, obtaining values of 0.81 and 0.69 mg eq of malvidin -3-O-glucoside /g grape pomace respectively. Although it is known that anthocyanins are more stable in acidic media, the extraction values obtained for mixtures with acids were lower than expected

Study of the evolution of tannins during wine aging by mass spectrometry monitoring of oxidation markers released after chemical depolymerization

Among the many compounds in wine, condensed tannins play an important role in the organoleptic properties of the products; they are partly responsible for astringency, bitterness and also contribute to the color. This research work aims to study the oxidation state of these bio-heteropolymers which is an important lock in the analysis of processed products in order to better control their quality. Indeed, their identification remains at present a challenge because of the large heterogeneity of their degrees of polymerization (DP) based on 4 monomers (epicatechin, catechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin-3-O-gallate) thus multiplying the number of oxidation products.

Wine growing terroirs: management of potential. New issues at stake for AOCs in France

Terroirs represent a heritage that must be studied and managed with appropriate methods; recourse to agronomic and oenological sciences alone is necessary, but is in no way sufficient without the contribution of the humanities.

The Bergerac guaranteed vintage area « terroirs »

The vineyard of Bergerac, a guaranteed vintage, is situated in the mid-Lot valley, which has siliceous terraced rows on its hillsides, and on its bordering plateaux, composed of limestone and clay of the tertiary geological eras.

Partitioning of seasonal above‐ground biomass of four vineyard-grown varieties: development of a modelling framework to infer temperature-rate response functions

Aims: Forecasting the biomass allocation among source and sinks organs is crucial to better understand how grapevines control the distribution of acquired resources and has a great meaning in term of making decisions about agricultural practices in vineyards. Modelling plant growth and development is one of prediction approaches that play this role when it concerns growth rates in response to variation in environmental conditions
