Application of uv-led in wine as an alternative to sulphur dioxide

Abstract

Sulfites (SO2) are commonly used in the wine industry to preserve products during storage for antiseptic and antioxidant purposes (Oliveira et al., 2011). However, the presence of sulfites at varying concentrations has been linked to allergic reactions in some consumers, such as dermatitis, urticaria, abdominal pain, among others (Vally & Thompson, 2001). UV-LED irradiation has been is an attractive technology of non-thermal nature and is an alternative to partially or totally replace the addition of SO2 to wine, due to its antimicrobial effect (Conner et al., 1998; Falguera et al., 2013). In this study, the effect of the UV-LED irradiation on the activity of Acetobacter aceti ATCC 15973 of white wine (Sauvignon blanc) and red wine (Pinot noir) was evaluated. A laboratory scale static UV LED irradiation system was designed, composed of four diodes with wavelengths of 278 nm (8-12 mW), 275 nm (3-5 mW) and 265 nm (1-3 mW) and irradiation times of 10, 20 and 30 min. The results indicate that irradiation at a wavelength of 278 nm for 30 minutes completely eliminated the A. aceti concentration (CFU/ml) in white wine. Irradiation of white wine at wavelengths of 275 and 265 nm for 30 min resulted in a logarithmic reduction of approximately 2.4. UV-LED irradiation processing of red wine was not as efficacious in eliminating A. aceti (CFU/ml), however, a logarithmic reduction of 4 was evidenced over 30 min. Therefore, the results obtained from the static UV LED irradiation process for white wine (Sauvignon blanc) and red wine (Pinot noir) showed that with diodes at a wavelength of 278 nm and a time of 30 min, the concentration of A. aceti ATCC 15973 was significantly reduced, which is relevant to control to maintain the quality of the wines. Furthermore, this technology could be an advantageous alternative to avoid the excessive use of sulphites in wine products. The effect on the final quality aspects of wine needs to be further clarified.

Effects of regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) on grape composition in Monastrell grapevines under semiarid conditions

The influence of two pre-veraison and post-veraison regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) strategies on yield and grape quality was analyzed during a two year period for mature grapevines (cv. Monastrell) in Southeastern of Spain

Management of water status in vineyards: meta-analysis of its effects on yield and grape composition

Mediterranean vineyards have been traditionally grown under rainfed conditions, but in recent decades the irrigated area has increased significantly, seeking to minimize the adverse effects of severe water stress on grape quality and yield. Given the large area occupied by vineyards, and the increasing scarcity of water resources, it is necessary to develop strategies for the optimization and efficient use of water to reduce the risk of its overexploitation. The present study aims at valorizing previous knowledge generated in different research projects by means of a meta-analysis of the effects of water status management on vineyard performance.

Screening of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosine related metabolites in commercial wines by an UHPLC/MS validated method.

Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is a bioactive phenolic compound with antioxidant activity. Yeast synthetise tyrosol from tyrosine by the Ehrlich pathway which is subsequently hydroxylated to HT. The aim of the present work is to develop and validate an UHPLC–HRMS method to assess the metabolites involved in this pathway as well as to screen Spanish commercial wines for HT bioactive compound.

Methyl Jasmonate Versus Nano-Methyl Jasmonate: Effect On The Stilbene Content In Monastrell Variety

Stilbenes, a kind of non-flavonoid phenolic compounds, have been reported to be responsible for various beneficial effects. Their biological properties include antibacterial and antifungal effects, as well as cardioprotective, neuroprotective and anticancer actions (Guerrero et al. 2009).Several strategies can be used to increase stilbene content in grapes and one of them could be the use of elicitors such as methyl jasmonate. The use of this elicitor has been proven to be efficient in the production of secondary metabolites which increases the quality of wines, but its use also has some drawbacks such as its low water solubility, high volatility, and its expensive cost (Gil-Muñoz et al. 2021).

Vineyard’s ozone application to induce secondary metabolites accumulation in grapes and wine

In viticulture sector to find new tools for pest management has become an urgent necessity. Hence, grapevines cultivation has high production rate demand and to meet the intensive market request, a massive use of pesticides is often required. In addition to the environmental problems associated with large use of chemicals, there is an increasing number of consumers which are asking for
