Ethanol Determination in Low Alcohol Beverages – Megazyme Paper
Ethanol Determination | K-ETOH & K-ETOHLQR
In the spirit of healthy living and particularly as young drinkers turn away from high-alcohol beer, spirits and wine, there has been an explosion in low alcohol or alcohol-free alternatives to fill the gap. These products will all need to be assessed for compliance to the local food standard on permitted ethanol concentration.
Our supplier, Megazyme understands the labelling needs of manufacturers and provides two assay kits for the accurate measurements of ethanol, even at low levels such as those in ‘low-alcohol’ and ‘alcohol-free’ beers. These megazyme kits are currently used in the brewing industry and for other ‘low-alcohol’ beverages such as Kombucha.
K-ETOH used with AOAC Method 2019.08
K-ETOHLQR used with AOAC Method 2017.07
A peer-reviewed publication” Determination of Ethanol Concentration in Kombucha Beverages: Single-Laboratory Validation of an Enzymatic Method, First Action Method 2019.08” can be found here.
