Hazy drinks report From April 2016

Hazy drinks report

Haze formation is a quality problem that can affect a wide range of drinks for a number of different reasons. Nonmicrobiological particles that can cause haze include starch, beta-glucan, proteins, lipids and crystalline substances.

This member-funded project investigated haze formation in three categories of novel alcoholic beverages - red fruit ciders, flavoured beers and beer-mix beverages - by characterising the chemical parameters of the drinks and inducing haze formation through several forcing tests.
