VALORIZATION OF GRAPE WINE POMACE USING PULSED ELECTRIC FIELDS (PEF) AND SUPERCRITICAL CO₂ (SC CO₂) EXTRACTION

Abstract

Wine grape pomace quantitatively and qualitatively represents the most important fraction of wine waste. Namely, this by-product makes ~ 20% of the total mass of vinified grapes, and it is characterized with high concentrations of polyphenolic antioxidants, as well as grape seed oil. Hence, valorization of wine pomace, as an alternative to traditionally employed disposal, has drown considerable interest in recent years. Earlier studies were mostly focused on the extraction of phenolics, while mechanisms enhancing the extraction of lipid fraction from grape pomace, as well as their impact on the grape seed oil quality are far less investigated. In addition, opposed to conventional solvent extraction methods, new trends lead to the employment of eco-friendly extraction technologies as supercritical CO₂ (SC CO₂) extraction. The aim of this research was to study impact of low and high intensity pulsed electric fields (PEF) pretreatments prior to SC CO₂ extraction of grape seed oil, from Graševina grape pomace, on the oil yield and chemical composition. Results showed that PEF assisted SC CO₂ extracted more than 95% of pomace lipids and contributed to significantly higher concentrations of both lipophilic (sterols and tocochromanols) and hydrophilic antioxidants (polyphenolic compounds) in grape seed oil. These concentrations were up to 10% higher for total sterols, but even more than 50% higher for total tocochromanols and total individual polyphenols, respectively. PEF pretreated samples showed significantly higher concentrations of stigmasterol, β-sitosterol, Δ5-avenasterol, Δ5,24-stigmastadienol and Δ7-avenasterol. Moreover, significantly higher concentrations of all analyzed tocochromanols were also found in these samples, primarily of β-tocopherol, plastochromanol-8 and α-tocotrienol that showed more than two times higher values. In addition, PEF pretreatments significantly contributed to the extraction of all individual polyphenolic compounds, while more than two times higher concentrations were found for gallic, p-coumaric and ferulic acids. Moreover, PEF assisted SC CO₂ extraction showed favorable effect on the extraction of the most abundant fatty acid, linoleic acid. Finally, the highest concentrations of both lipophilic and hydrophilic compounds were extracted by PEF pretreatment of higher intensity.

STATISTICAL COMPARISON OF GROWTH PARAMETERS OF NINE BIOPROTECTION STRAINS IMPLEMENTED ON ARTIFICIALLY CONTAMINATED SYNTHETIC MUST

In recent years, consumer demand for products without chemical additives increased, becoming a priority for the wine sector. SO₂ is widely used for its multiple properties including antiseptics, antioxidants and antioxidasics and the strategy of bioprotection in winemaking represents now an alternative to this chemical additive. In oenology, results have highlighted the interest of bioprotection to limit the development of microorganisms like Hanseniaspora uvarum and thus reduce the doses of sulphite. Indeed, this species is considered because of its acetic acid and methyl butyl acetate production, the latter can cover the varietal character of wines.

THE POTENTIAL USE OF SOLUBLE POLYSACCHARIDES TO PREVENT THE OXIDATION OF ROSÉ WINES

Lately, rosé wine is rapidly increasing its popularity worldwide. Short-time macerations with the red skin of the grapes cause the partial extraction of anthocyanins, which are responsible for the pinki-sh-salmon hue of rosé wines. However, the low quantity of tannins (antioxidants) and richness in phenolic acids, which can be easily oxidized into yellowish pigments, tend to predispose rosé wines to an undesirable browning. Although the use of SO₂ for the prevention of oxidation is highly extended, this practice is expected to be reduced. Therefore, the search for alternative oenological adjuvants that prevent the oxidation and browning of rosé wines is highly desired.

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE VOLATILE COMPOUNDS PROFILE OF COMMERCIAL GRAPPAS OBTAINED FROM THE POMACE OF AMARONE WINES

Grappa is a traditional Italian alcoholic beverage, with an alcohol content generally between 40-60% vol., obtained from the distillation of grape pomace used for the production of wine. Grappa are often aged in wooden barrels. There are various types of grappa: young, aromatic, aged, extra-aged depending on whether the distillate comes from aromatic vines or is aged in wooden barrels for shorter or longer periods. There is also flavored grappa if herbs, fruit or roots are added. All this makes it an extremely heterogeneous product both from an organoleptic and compositional point of view.

METHYL SALICYLATE: A TRENDY COMPOUND MARKER OF ZELEN, A UNIQUE SLOVENIAN VARIETY

The wine market interest for autochthonous varieties, particularly from less known wine regions, has significantly raised in the past few years. In that context, Slovenia, a small country from central Europe with a long winemaking tradition, is getting more and more attention, particularly through its range of unique regional varieties. Among them, Zelen, meaning “green” in Slovene, can only be found in the Vipava valley region, located on the western side of the country, near the border with Italy. When they are young, Zelen wines display very singular aromas reminiscent of rosemary, sage and white fruit. Despite its uniqueness, Zelen wine aromatic typicality is poorly documented in the literature.

FREE TERPENE RESPONSE OF ‘MOSCATO BIANCO’ VARIETY TO GRAPE COLD STORAGE

Temperature control is crucial in wine production, starting from grape harvest to the bottled wine storage. Climate change and global warming affect the timing of grape ripening, and harvesting is often done during hot summer days, influencing berry integrity, secondary metabolites potential, enzyme and oxidation phenomena, and even fermentation kinetics. To curb this phenomenon, pre-fermentative cold storage can help preserve the grapes and possibly increase the concentration of key secondary metabolites. In this study, the effect of grape pre-fermentative cold storage was assessed on the ‘Moscato bianco’ white grape cultivar, known for its varietal terpenes (65% of free terpenes represented by linalool and its derivatives) and widely used in Piedmont (Italy) to produce Asti DOCG wines.
