MILWAUKEE, WI. — June 16, 2010 – Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits, a global provider of fermentation ingredients to the fuel ethanol industry, is proud to announce the introduction of Thermosacc® GOLD, a new yeast product for the fuel ethanol industry.
Thermosacc GOLD is a fresh-cake yeast of Saccharomyces cerevisiae specially selected to better withstand the rigors of fermentation. A crumble yeast that has not been dried, it produces a shorter lag phase. The increased budding rates and vitality of Thermosacc GOLD result in
quicker starting fermentations compared to dry yeast.
Designed to utilize sugars more efficiently, Thermosacc GOLD leaves less sugar and glycerol at the end of the fermentation process. This translates into increased yield, while adding dollars to the bottom line.
“Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spiritsis continually striving for product improvement,” says Bill Nankervis, General Manager. “Thermosacc GOLD is another example of understanding our customers’ needs and delivering on them. Thermosacc GOLD allows plants to achieve incremental steps toward more efficient and profitable operations.”
Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spiritsexperts will be available to answer questions about Thermosacc GOLD at Booth #1025 of the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop in St. Louis. Or, see the Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spiritsweb site, www.ethanoltech.com, for more details.
