Yeasts and natural production of sulphites

Maik WERNER1, Doris RAUHUT1, Philippe COTTEREAU2; 1 State Research Institute Geisenheim, Germany; 2 IFV Rodilhan, France

During alcoholic fermentation yeasts naturally produce sulphur dioxide as a metabolic intermediate of the sulphate reduction pathway. Yeast strains can be categorized into low SO2 producers i.e. Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. ellipsoideus and high SO2 producers i.e Saccharomyces bayanus Sacardo. Certain yeast strains can produce up to 300 mg/L of sulphite during fermentation…..
