Malolactic Cultures Market Outlook

Malolactic cultures are basically used for balancing the wine and enhancing its flavor. They make the wine taste smoother by converting malic acid which is naturally present in fruits such as Apples and Grapes, into lactic acid and carbon dioxide by the action of Oenococcus oeni and Lactic acid bacteria (LAB). As lactic acid is a mono-acid, it is less acidic than malic acid and therefore, it helps to decrease the acidity and reduce tartness in the wine and softens its flavours. This whole process is known as Malolactic Fermentation. In addition to this, Malolactic Cultures contribute towards the aroma, alcoholic content, microbial stability and aging of the wine. Since, Malolactic fermentation is a prominent step in wine making, Malolactic cultures that aid in malolactic fermentation are being used largely which in turn is fueling Malolactic cultures market. Malolactic cultures ferment the wine gradually over a period of several weeks or months and are readily available in solid and liquid form under different brands.
