The specific advantages of SIHA Active Bentonite G:

  • Specially formulated for protein adsorption in beverages
  • SIHA Active Bentonite G has very high adsorptive properties in respect of proteins because of its Na content
  • Despite the higher swelling volume a compact lees deposit is formed - up to 8% improvement over alternative products. 
  • Besides protein adsorption, tannins and heavy metals are also removed to a certain extent.
  • Preparation time reduced to 2 hours @ 20C. 

Dose Rate

Prior to the additions, we recommend a bench trial be conducted to ensure the dose rate achieves protein stability and prevents subequent protein haze forming.  Below is a chart of approximate dose rates as recommended by the manufacturer:
