Malolactic Bacteria Nutrients
- Learn More
Nutriferm ML is a nutrient specific for malolactic bacteria. Increasing nutrients in wine stimulates the growth of bacteria at inoculation and improves cell division. Nutriferm ML provides polysaccharides, amino acids, co-factors and vitamins. The cellulose contained in the preparation acts as a support for bacteria cells and absorbs compounds that may inhibit cell growth. The combined effect of Nutriferm ML’s components ensures the domination of the inoculated strain over natural flora and dramatically reduces the length of malolactic fermentation. It’s particularly recommended to promote malolactic fermentation in difficult wines.
Application: Promote malolactic fermentation; high acid wines.
Dosage: 20-30 g/hL (1.7-2.5 lb/1,000 gal)

Nutrient and regulator of osmotic pressure, Nutriferm OsmoBacti helps selected malolactic bacteria survive in difficult wine conditions. When used at the end of the rehydration phase and prior to inoculation, OsmoBacti increases the rate of surviving cells thus allowing a more rapid start and faster conclusion of malolactic fermentation.
Application: Nutrient for malolactic bacteria for difficult ML conditions.
Dosage: 50 g for each 25 hL (660 gal) dose of bacteria
