AIMS To determine acetic acid, acetaldehyde and glycerol production by wine yeast throughout Icewine fermentation. The expression of yeast cytosolic aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALD3 and ALD6) and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GPD1) were followed to relate metabolites in the wines to expression patterns of these genes. METHODS AND RESULTS Icewine juice(More)
Am. J. Enol. Vitic. 57:2 (2006) 113 Many potentially toxic substances can be present in food and beverages. Advances in detection methods have lead to the discovery of many compounds in wines, such as ethyl carbamate, that could be harmful to humans. This naturally occurring compound is considered potentially dangerous to humans, as it exhibits carcinogenic(More)
To remain competitive in increasingly overcrowded markets, yeast strain development programmes are crucial for fermentation-based food and beverage industries. In a winemaking context, there are many yeast phenotypes that stand to be improved. For example, winemakers endeavouring to produce sweet dessert wines wrestle with fermentation challenges particular(More)
AIMS We previously reported that the aldehyde dehydrogenase encoded by ALD3 but not ALD6 was responsible, in part, for the increased acetic acid found in Icewines based on the expression profile of these genes during fermentation. We have now completed the expression profile of the remaining yeast aldehyde dehydrogenase genes ALD2, ALD4 and ALD5 during(More)
AIMS The objective of this study was to determine the effect of increasing juice soluble solids above 40 degrees Brix on wine yeast's ability to grow and ferment the juice, with particular focus on acetic acid production, titratable acidity (TA) changes and the maximum amount of sugar consumed by the yeast. METHODS AND RESULTS Riesling Icewine juices at(More)
