Freshprotect, (previously called Viniprotect), is a proprietary IOC blend of polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP) and bentonite. It was specifically formulated to help minimize problems associated with the oxidation of polyphenols including color, bitterness and herbaceousness in oxygen sensitive juice. These characteristics are significantly mitigated with the use of Freshprotect. PVPP is intended as a processing aid. Wines made with it must be racked or filtered afterwards. Freshprotect has also been known to help correct sensory off-aromas.
UsageMix Freshprotect into 10 times its weight in cool water (do not mix in juice or wine). Allow to soak for 1 hour. Then add the mixture into the tank slowly; making sure the solution is thoroughly blended into the juice.
