Chemical and colorimetric study of copigmentation between malvidin-3-O-glucoside and wine polyphenols and polysaccharides

Abstract

AIM: The objective of this work was to perform a colorimetric study of the copigmentation between malvidin-3-O-glucoside, one of the main anthocyanins in red wines, and different wine phenolic compounds and polysaccharides. The present work also aimed to study the stabilization effect on the flavylium cation due to the copigmentation interactions with these compounds.

METHODS: Copigmentation was studied in model systems containing malvidin-3-O-glucoside and different copigments, including flavonols, flavanols, hydroxycinnamic and hydroxybenzoic acids and also polysaccharides at two pH values. The stability of the flavylium cation (25 ºC for 5 weeks) was assessed by HPLC-DAD in an acid medium whereas the study of copigmentation and its relevance on color was carried out at wine like pH (pH 3.6) by differential colorimetry using CIELAB parameters calculated from the whole visible spectra.

RESULTS: Important changes in the CIELAB parameters of the model systems were observed depending on the phenolic compound assayed as copigment, which could point out differences on the copigmentation interactions established. In the case of polysaccharides, it has been observed that they could play a role on the copigmentation effect. Moreover, copigmentation reactions seem to exert an influence on the flavylium cation stability by stabilizating the flavylium concentration during the length of the study or favoring the formation of anthocyanin-derived pigments. 

CONCLUSIONS

Color changes and stability of the flavylium cation due to copigmentation phenomenon between anthocyanin and phenolic compounds and/or polysaccharides can be related to the copigment structure.

ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION DRIVES THE SELECTION OF OENOCOCCUS OENI STRAINS IN WINE

Oenococcus oeni is the predominant lactic acid bacteria species in wine and cider, where it performs the malolactic fermentation (MLF) (Lonvaud-Funel, 1999). The O. oeni strains analyzed to date form four major genetic lineages named phylogroups A, B, C and D (Lorentzen et al., 2019). Most of the strains isolated from wine, cider, or kombucha belong to phylogroups A, B+C, and D, respectively, although B and C strains were also detected in wine (Campbell-Sills et al., 2015; Coton et al., 2017; Lorentzen et al., 2019;

Winemaking processes discrimination by using qNMR metabolomics

AIM: Metabolomics in food science has been increasingly used over the last twenty years. Among the tools used for wine, qNMR has emerged as a powerful tool to discern wines based on environmental factors such as geographical origin, grape variety and vintage (Gougeon et al., 2019a).
