Fermaid 0 Nutrient ORGANIC (di ammonium phosphate free)
Fermaid O is the latest nutrient developed by Lallemand’s winemaking nutrient research team . Fermaid O is a blend of inactivated yeast fractions rich in organic nitrogen. Fermaid O does not contain added ammonia salts (DAP) or added micronutrients.
The importance of organic nitrogen from yeasts is well known as a highly efficient nutrient source for wine yeasts, especially when compared to inorganic nitrogen from DAP. In addition, Fermaid O consistently produces lower levels of negative sulfur compounds, compared with DAP.
With its high content of organic nitrogen, Fermaid O can help winemakers achieve steady fermentations, while limiting temperature peaks. When inorganic nitrogen (DAP) additions are NOT desired, the use of GoFerm® or NATSTEP™ and Fermaid O is recommended. With this combination, Go-Ferm or NATSTEP provides needed micronutrients during yeast rehydration, and Fermaid O supplies critical nutrients and survival factors to help the yeast avoid stressed conditions.
Note: In low nutrient situations, yeast available nitrogen (YAN) may be insufficient to avoid fermentation problems.
