HYDROXYTYROSOL PRODUCTION BY DIFFERENT YEAST STRAINS: SACCHAROMYCES AND NON-SACCHAROMYCES AND THE RELATION WITH THE NITROGEN CONSUMPTION

Abstract

Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is a phenolic compound with extensive bioactive properties. It is present in olives, olive oil and wines. Its occurrence in wines is partly due to yeast synthetise tyrosol from tyrosine by the Ehrlich pathway, which is subsequently hydroxylated to .

The aim of the present work is to study how different yeast strains can influence in the HT production and, how the different nitrogen consumption of each strain can interfere the production of bioactive compounds.

A total of six strains were evaluated for the production of HT, four of them were Saccharomyces and two of them were non-Saccharomyces. The Saccharomyces ones were Red Fruit, QA23, Uvaferm and Lalvin Rhone, and the non-Saccharomyces were Torulaspora delbrueckii and Metschnikowia pulcherrima.

In order to know the nitrogen consumption of each yeast, the nitrogen content in the extracellular media was measured at the early days of the fermentation.

The alcoholic fermentation was performed in synthetic must prepared according to the instructions of Riou et al., 1997. Fermentation was carried out in sextuplicate for each strain. lasting 10 days each. A total of 360 samples were collected. The growth of yeast, the weight of the flask, density, and the Baume grade of the must were recorded daily to monitor the fermentation.

Prior to the analyses of the compounds, a cleaning step was performed using a Solid Phase Extraction (SPE). The protocol for the SPE was optimized following the instructions of AOAC, 20212. All the compounds of the Erlich pathway (tyrosine, hydroxyphenylacetic acid, tyrosol, hydroxyphenylacetaldehyde acid, hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid and hydroxytyrosol) were evaluated thanks to a validated method of UHPLC-HRMS. The analysis was carried out in a Waters Acquity UHPLC (Milford, Massachusetts, USA) coupled to a Waters Xevo TQ (Milford, Massachusetts, USA) triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The MassLynx MS software was used. The column used was an Acquity UPLC BEH C18. The chromatographic conditions consisted of two mobile phases, water with 0.2% acetic acid (A) and acetonitrile (B), with a gradient elution programmed.

The obtained results show that the Saccharomyces strains have a higher production of HT than non-Saccharomyces. Significant differences were observed between strains for the production of HT. The highest production was in day 5 for Uvaferm, reaching a concentration of 4 ng/mL. A different nitrogen consumption was observed for each yeast.

IMPACT OF NEW BIO STIMULANTS ON GRAPE SECONDARY METABOLITES UNDER CLIMATE CHANGE CONDITIONS

In a context of climate change and excessive use of agrochemical products, sustainable approaches for environmental and human health such as the use of bio stimulants in viticulture represent a potential option, against abiotic and biotic threats. Bio stimulants are organic compounds, microbes, or a combination of both, that stimulate plant’s vital processes, allowing high yields and good quality products. In vines, may trigger an innate immune response leading to the synthesis of secondary metabolites, key compounds for the organoleptic properties of grapes and wines.

AROMATIC AND FERMENTATIVE PERFORMANCES OF HANSENIASPORA VINEAE IN DIFFERENT SEQUENTIAL INOCULATION PROTOCOLS WITH SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE FOR WHITE WINEMAKING

Hanseniaspora vineae (Hv) is a fermenting non-Saccharomyces yeast that compared to Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Sc) present some peculiar features on its metabolism that make it attractive for its use in wine production. Among them, it has been reported a faster yeast lysis and release of polysaccharides, as well as increased ß-glucosidase activity. Hv also produces distinctive aroma compounds, including elevated levels of fermentative compounds such as ß-phenylethyl acetate and norisoprenoids like safranal. However, it is known for its high nutritional requirements, resulting in prolonged and sluggish fermentations, even when complemented with Sc strain and nutrients.

AGEING BOTTLED WINES SUBMERGED IN SEA: DOES IT IMPACT WINE COMPOSITION?

Aging wines is a common practice in oenology, which in recent years has undergone some innovations. Currently, we are witnessing the practice of aging bottled wine in depth, immersed in the sea or in reservoirs, for variable periods of time, but so far, little is known about the impact of aging in depth on the physicochemical properties, of wines.
The objective of this work was to evaluate the impact of this practice on the physicochemical characteristics, in particular to verify changes in the volatile composition of wines bottled and subsequently immersed in depth. A red wine from Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled and a set of bottles were submerged from July to February (2020), another set of bottles were submerged from February to September (2020) and another set was kept in the wine cellar. Bottles from each set were analyzed (in triplicate) in July 2021.

UNRAVELING THE CHEMICAL MECHANISM OF MND FORMATION IN RED WINE DURING BOTTLE AGING : IDENTIFICATION OF A NEW GLUCOSYLATED HYDROXYKETONE PRO-PRECURSOR

During bottle aging, the development of wine aroma through low and gradual oxygen exposure is often positive in red wines, but can be unfavorable in many cases, resulting in a rapid loss of fresh, fruity flavors. Prematurely aged wines are marked by intense prune and fig aromatic nuances that dominate the desirable bouquet achieved through aging (Pons et al., 2013). This aromatic defect, in part, is caused by the presence of 3-methyl-2,4-nonanedione (MND). MND content was shown to be lower in nonoxidized red wines and higher in oxidized red wines, which systematically exceeds the odor detection threshold (62 ng/L).

NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE FATE OF MARKERS INVOLVED IN FRESH MUSHROOM OFF-FLAVOURS DURING ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION

The fresh mushroom off-flavour (FMOff) has been appearing in wines since the 2000s. Some C8 compounds such as 1-octen-3-one, 1-octen-3-ol, 1-hydroxyoctan-3-one, 3-octanol and others are involved in this specific off-flavour [1-3]. At the same time, glycosidic precursors of some FMOff compounds have been identified in musts contaminated by Crustomyces subabruptus [4], highlighting the role of aroma precursors in this specific taint. However, the fate of these volatile molecules and glycosidic fractions during fermentation is not well known.
