Blend of bentonites that facilitates the sedimentation of yeast
Clarifiant BK is a powdered blend of bentonites that was formulated specifically for sparkling wine. It facilitates the sedimentation of yeast into a compact deposit for ease of disgorgement. Clarifiant BK has a low deproteinization quality and gentle mode of action which is important for the quality of the foam.
