Scottzyme® Color X is a unique pectinase with cellulase side-activities. These activities help release anthocyanins, polymeric phenols and tannins. In trials we have found the tannic extraction is coarser with Color X than with Color Pro. We therefore recommend using Color X when heavier tannic extraction is desired for longer aging. The color response of Color X is similar to Color Pro.
