Chinova Bioworks Launches Natural Preservation Ingredient

Chinova Bioworks has announced the launch of Mycobrio, a dual functioning mushroom-derived fining agent and natural preservation ingredient for alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages. Mycobrio is a natural liquid chitosan fiber extract derived from the stems of white button mushrooms. The ingredient is designed to replace synthetic and animal derived fining agents that are traditionally used in fermented drinks. The company says it can protect against spoilage as a natural antimicrobial agent in wines, beers, ciders, and seltzers.
