Enzymes play key roles in the processing of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Generally, endogenous enzymes are more challenging to control than commercial enzymes that are, therefore, used to facilitate operations, such as clarification and filtration, to modify sensory attributes, to improve product stability and extend its shelf life.
Original and review papers dealing with all aspects of enzymes in beverages processing are welcome for inclusion in this Special Issue that will focus primarily on:
- enzymes in alcoholic (e.g., beer, wine, cider, distilled spirits) and non-alcoholic beverages (e.g., fruit juices, milk-based, tea, coffee, ready to drink and functional foods)
- innovative technologies to keep endogenous enzymes under control
- enzymatic treatments to improve processing and quality, to stabilize and extend shelf-life
- effects of enzymatic treatments on sensory attributes
