Clarifying Agent, Filtration aid, Flavor Improvement

SYLOPUTE has characteristics of an amorphous, high purity silica offering extraordinarily specific impurity adsorption. Finely formed micropore substructures and surface characteristics give it all the advantages of xerogels and hydrogels, without the significant disadvantages. Specific SYLOPUTE grades were developed through a cooperative effort between Fuji Silysia Chemical and leading breweries in Japan.


Advantage of SYLOPUTE

・SYLOPUTE gives selective adsorption in liquid foods.

・SYLOPUTE does not effect on flavor, color, or foam retention characteristics.

・SYLOPUTE’S tight particle size distribution provides quick and easy filtration.
