New product in this range
With its formulation based 100% on vegetable proteins (patatins), VEGEFINE® is part of the new line of LAFFORT® fining preparations. Thanks to the physicochemical characteristics of these proteins, VEGEFINE® ensures effective fining of musts and wines, also allowing very good compaction of solids and lees. With its non-allergenic formulation, suitable for Organic winemaking and easy to use, VEGEFINE® can replace traditional fining agents of animal origin.
The expertise of our teams around the world allows us to offer a 100 % vegetable protein solution (patatin and pea) dedicated to flotation. VEGEFLOT® is a non-allergenic formulation, suitable for Organic winemaking, combining a high flocculation speed with a wide spectrum of action for the elimination of phenolic compounds, promotes rapid, complete flotation, with good foam compaction. The presence of patatin in the formulation helps to reduce the risks of wine oxidation at an early stage.
A non-allergenic preparation, suitable for Organic winemaking and based on vegetable protein and sodium and calcium bentonite, POLYMUST® NATURE ensures effective clarification of musts and wines. The balance of the formulation promotes remarkable compaction of lees while contributing to protein stabilisation. In red wine, POLYMUST® NATURE contributes effectively to the stabilisation of colouring matter through the combined action of plant proteins and bentonites.
Our latest research developments (fining agent Zeta potential, identification and stabilisation of colour compounds) has given us a much better understanding of the mechanisms in play, allowing us to adapt the type and dosage of finings agents to specific applications. The sheer diversity of raw materials used also enables us to adapt fining to the type of wine must and to the desired flavour and aroma profiles.
Moving beyond the classic sources (animal, mineral or synthetic), LAFFORT® was one of the pioneers in the field of allergen-free alternatives (the POLYMUST® range) and a new plant source ( VEGECOLL® made from Patatin – quote: Sitevi trade show 2015).
LAFFORT® works just as hard on the application side of the process: VEGECOLL®, for example, can be used during tangential filtration with the Flavy® FX ICS system developed in partnership with the Bucher-Vaslin Company. This patented process (FLAVY® VEGECOLL® quote: Vinitech Sifel 2016) accelerates fining by simplifying the process. It reduces the cost of treatment while hitting all the same stability improvement targets.

Specific preparation for correcting and/or limiting development of coloured changes in rosé wines, as well as the risk of “pinking” in certain white wines.
