Determination of L-Malic acid in cider
By analyzing L-Malic acid and L-Lactic acid, it is possible to assess the correct progress of the malolactic fermentation.
With CDR CiderLab, a cider analysis system, the analytical method for determining L-Malic Acid is simpler than the reference method while based on the same principles.
L-Malic acid is oxidized in an alkaline environment through an enzymatic reaction and converted into oxaloacetic acid, which in turn produces NADH. The increase of absorbance, measured at 366 nm (end-point), is directly proportional to the concentration of L-Malic acid in the sample.
The calibration curve of CDR CiderLab, obtained using reference methods, confirms the excellent linearity of the system over the whole testing range.
