Organic Acids in White Wine (KC-811)

Organic acids in white wine were analyzed using RSpak KC-811. Fruit contains a large amount of malic acid. For wine, malic acid is transformed to lactic acid by enzymes during malolactic fermentation. The result of this transformation is said to give wine a mild taste. For high quality white wine, the chromatogram shows almost all the malic acid has been transformed to lactic acid.
