Chinova Bioworks introduces MycoKleer, a vegan fining agent for beverages.

MycoKleer is an all-natural alternative to synthetic or animal-based fining agents for clarifying beverages. Derived from upcycled white button mushrooms, MycoKleer is a vegan, clean-label, self-affirmed GRAS processing aid. It attracts and binds with yeasts, tannins, proteins, and other unwanted particles from a variety of beverages such as juice, coffee, tea, cider, seltzer, beer, and wine. Within 12-24 hours, it settles a solid layer at the bottom of the tank. This allows brewers to rack off the remaining clear liquid.

“When clarifying beverages, MycoKleer replaces synthetic and animal-based fining agents like isinglass, silica, PVPP, bentonite, and gelatin,” said David Brown, COO and co-founder of Chinova Bioworks. “Additionally, the natural and vegan nature of MycoKleer resonates with consumers demanding clean-label and sustainable ingredients.”
