Gentle on flavour – tough on germs.

Velcorin® is our highly effective microbial control agent for the cold sterilization of your beverages with no effect on the taste and colour. Micro-organisms are everywhere, when bottling beverages – in the ambient air, production plants, caps and the drinks themselves. When it comes to the stabilisation of beverages against typical beverage-spoilage microorganisms, the cold sterilisation with Velcorin®, a microbial control agent (Dimethyldicarbonate/DMDC), has successfully established itself as one of the leading technologies in this field. It is fast, safe and straight forward.
