PRODUCTION OF A FUNCTIONAL BEVERAGE FROM WINEMAKING BY-PRODUCTS: A NEW WAY OF VALORISATION

Abstract

In the challenge of transforming waste into useful products that can be re-used in a circular economy perspective, winery by-products can be considered as a source of potentially bioactive molecules such as polyphenols. The wine industry generates each year 20 million tons of by-products. Kombucha fermentation is an ancestral process which allow to increase the biological properties of tea by the action of a microbial consortium formed by yeasts and bacteria called SCOBY. It belongs to the field of healthy food for which the interest of consumers is growing. The objective of this work was to propose a new functional beverage made from winemaking by-products fermented by a Kombucha SCOBY.

In a preliminary step, 2 types of by products were evaluated for Kombucha fermentation, wine lees and grape pomaces in order to assess their ability to ferment. Then the work was focused on grape pomaces originated from red winemaking. Several parameters were varied during the fermentation process: temperature, pomace concentration, sugar concentration, temperature and duration. The fermentation kinetics and final composition of grape Kombucha were monitored. Several biological activities were assessed in vitro at the beginning and at the end of fermentation: antioxydant, antidiabetic and anti-inflammatory. Depending on their physico-chemical and biological characteristics, some of the pomace Kombucha beverages were submitted to a sensory evaluation.

For all fermentation conditions the biological activities were increased, at least by a factor 2, at the end of fermentation compared to the non-fermented grape pomaces infusions. However according to their concentrations in sugar and total acidity, the grape pomace Kombuchas were not equally appreciated by the panellists. A majority of them preferred the Kombucha flavoured with natural fruity aroma.

This work confirmed the feasibility of making a grape pomace Kombucha beverage. Even if the kombucha fermentation improved the biological activities of this new beverage, results showed that there is no significant impact of the tested processing parameters on the biological activities in vitro. This new functional beverage consists into a new way of winemaking by-products valorisation. As for future perspectives, the organoleptic aspect must be improved.

INSIGHT THE IMPACT OF GRAPE PRESSING ON MUST COMPOSITION

The pre-fermentative steps play a relevant role for the characteristics of white wine [1]. In particular, the grape pressing can affect the chemical composition and sensory profile and its optimized management leads to the desired extraction of aromas and their precursors, and phenols resulting in a balanced wine [2-4]. These aspects are important especially for must addressed to the sparkling wine as appropriate extraction of phenols is expected being dependent to grape composition, as well.

DOES LIGNIN AN ACCEPTABLE MARKER OF GRAPESEED MATURATION AND QUALITY?

Usually the winemaker consider polyphenols from the grape berry as an actor of the wine quality. There are frequently consider as a marker of grape maturity. It is commonly known that winemaker consider tannins and anthocyanins as main polyphenol actors for winemaking practices and wine quality. Here we will focus on the characterisation of lignins in grape seeds. Previous studies suggest that the seed is lignified [1], which could explain the change in colour of the seed when it reaches maturity and thus provide a reliable indicator for describing the maturity stage in the seed.

IMPACT OF MUST NITROGEN DEFICIENCY ON WHITE WINE COMPOSITION DEPENDING ON GRAPE VARIETY

Nitrogen (N) nutrition of the vineyard strongly influences the must and the wine compositions. Several chemical markers present in wine (i.e., proline, succinic acid, higher alcohols and phenolic compounds) have been proposed for the cultivar Chasselas, as indicators of N deficiency in the grape must at harvest [1]. Grape genetics potentially influences the impact of N deficiency on grape composition, as well as on the concentration of potential indicators in the wine. The goal of this study was to evaluate if the che- mical markers found in Chasselas wine can be extended for other white wines to indicate N deficiency in the grape must.

IMPACT OF FINING WITH K-CARRAGEENAN, BENTONITE, AND CHITOSAN ON PROTEIN STABILITY AND MACROMOLECULAR COMPOUNDS OF ALBARIÑO WHITE WINE PRODUCED WITH AND WITHOUT PRE-FERMENTATIVE SKIN MACERATION

Pre-fermentative skin maceration is a technique used in white wine production to enhance varietal aroma, but it can increase protein concentration, leading to protein instability and haze formation [1]. To prevent protein instability, wine producers typically use fining agents such as bentonite, before wine bottling, which can negatively impact sensory characteristics and produce waste [2,3]. The aim of this study was to understand the impact of alternative techniques such as the application of polysaccharides (k-carrageenan and chitosan) on protein stability and on the wine macromolecular composition.

EFFECTIVENESS OF APPLIED MATERIALS IN REDUCING THE ABSORPTION OF SMOKE MARKER COMPOUNDS IN A SIMULATED WILDFIRE SCENARIO

Smoke taint (ST) is a grape-wine off-flavour that may occur when grapes absorb volatile phenols (VPs) originating from wildfire smoke (1). ST is associated with the negative sensory attributes such as smoky and ashy notes. VPs are glycosylated in the plant and thus present in both free and bound forms (2; 3). Wildfire smoke has resulted in a decline in grape and wine quality and financial losses which has become a prominent issue for the global wine industry.
