Hops-Derived Fermentation Aids
for Global Ethanol Production
VitaHop®C, VitaHop®S and VitaHop®B are derived from natural acids found in hops. They will effectively control gram-positive bacteria in fermentation during ethanol production.

How It Works
Inhibits bacteria’s glucose intake, without affecting yeast activity.
These natural acids are absorbed by the bacteria cell and lower its pH. This inhibits the cell’s ability to transfer glucose through the cell wall. In essence, bacteria commonly found in ethanol production are starved to death. They cannot eat, multiply and therefore they die. Our hop products kill bacteria, but have no effect on yeast activity. In fact, without competition from bacteria, yeast do their job more effectively and alcohol yield benefits!
