Flashgum R Liquide is a 25% gum arabic derived from Acacia seyal. This preparation offers both colloidal protection and the perception of sweet and soft characters on the palate. Gum arabic products can help reduce the risk of colloidal deposits in the bottle in wines bottled without fi ltration. Natural polysaccharides reduce astringency and increase feelings of volume and fullness in the mouth. Flashgum R Liquide can provide color protection in rosé and fruit wines.
Flashgum R Liquide should be the last commercial product added to the wine. It is best to do inline additions 24-72 hours prior to the final pre-membrane and membrane filtrations. Filterability trials prior to membrane filtration are recommended. If using on wine that is not going to be filtered, add Flashgum R Liquide just prior to bottling.
Dated expiration. Store in a dry, odor-free environment at or below 25°C(77°F).
The current TTB maximum dosage guidelines allow for 2 lb/1000 gal of pure gum arabic. This figure was established many years ago. Some of the IOC recommended addition rates, however, are higher. If you wish to use Flashgum R Liquide at these higher rates, a letter must be sent to the TTB and a positive response must be received from the TTB prior to use. **Bench trials are always recommended.
