Scott Laboratories Announces QI'UP XC and NO[OX] are Now TTB Approved

July 28, 2021

Chitosan from Aspergillus niger is approved for use in juice and wine for fining and clarification. It was previously only approved for use in wine to remove spoilage organisms; however, it has the potential for many applications. This approval is "a breakthrough for clean-crafted, vegan winemaking" as QI'UP XC and NO[OX] are both chitosan-based animal-free, non-allergenic fining agents that serve as alternatives to gelatin and casein.
