Healthy Alternative to Sulphur Dioxide in Wine

Healthy Alternative to Sulphur Dioxide in Wine

It is known how adding sulphur dioxide in wine can cause headache and even temporary memory loss, and knowing the same, a project was started by some organizations some time ago. Financially backed by the European Commission, Food and drink research firm Campden BRI is among the multi-million-pound European research team.

It has been claimed that the team has managed to nail down an alternative to sulphur dioxide in wine, which might be able to address the rising concerns on the same lines. The team has found two extracts contained within wine to replace sulphur dioxide, which is used to preserve wine, but it can cause serious reactions too including asthma attacks.

"European researchers have made progress towards finding an alternative to adding sulphur dioxide to red wine and other foodstuffs, such as dried fruit, holding out the hope of making future festive seasons healthier for millions", said the European Commission, which has added some 3 million euros to the project.

It has apparently also found that those who drank the wine with the extracts could actually not figure out any major difference from the standard wine.

As of now, names of the extracts have been kept under covers. There are fair chances of unveiling new wines in May in order to see if consumers would be able to approve them or not.
