Use of UHPH processing in winemaking: control of microbial populations in grape musts 

Ultra-High Pressure Homogenization (UHPH) is a fast and efficient technique that can sterilize fluid foods at low temperatures or even under cooling conditions. A white must (Vitis vinifera L.) was processed at 300 MPa (inlet temperature 20 °C, in-valve temperature 98 °C, outlet temperature 25 °C, and time in valve 0.02 s) and their performance was compared with two untreated controls, a must that underwent a spontaneous fermentation (without SO2 addition) and another must that was sulfited with 35 mg/L of total SO2 and inoculated with the same Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast as the UHPH-treated must. UHPH treatment led to the total elimination of grape microorganisms.
