How Our Process and Equipment Keep Your NA Drinks Within Legal Limits

When producing non-alcoholic beverages, it is crucial to meet the legal alcohol limits per each customer’s product specifications. For producers, staying compliant with alcohol labeling and product regulations is imperative. BevZero, a leading dealcoholization equipment company, ensures alcohol specifications are being met through stringent processes, and specialized equipment and services.

Understanding the Importance of Dealcoholization for Non-Alcoholic Beverages

Dealcoholization is the process of removing alcohol from beverages, creating non-alcoholic versions of popular drinks. This process is vital for producers looking to cater to the growing demand for non-alcoholic products while adhering to strict regulations. Legal alcohol limits vary in percentage and terminology depending upon the country.

For instance, in the United States Federal law states that “non-alcoholic” beverages can contain up to 0.5%, whereas in the United Kingdom, “Alcohol-Free” beverages are defined as containing up to 0.05% ABV, and “Dealcoholized” products can contain up to 0.5% ABV. In Canada and Japan, “Non-Alcoholic wines should contain no more than 1% ABV. Due to the variation in regulations, the specifications provided by the customer for their product must be met to comply not only with alcohol regulations but labeling compliance. Thus, the dealcoholization company must be able to effectively remove alcohol down to the customer’s required ABV without compromising quality.

Minimal Impact on Quality: Maintaining the desired taste and quality of the beverage is crucial for consumer satisfaction. Their processes and advanced technologies ensure that the dealcoholization process has minimal impact on flavor, aroma, and overall quality. Alcohol is removed gently while maintaining the volatile aromatic compounds to return to the dealcoholized product, preserving its wine like character.

Advanced Dealcoholization Technologies

BevZero’s main focus, and the heart of its company and expertise is dealcoholization, whether it be for service or equipment sales. BevZero uses the most advanced dealcoholization technologies, utilizing thin film vacuum distillation.

Vacuum Distillation involves heating the beverage under reduced pressure, which lowers the boiling point of alcohol. The alcohol evaporates at a lower temperature, preserving the beverage’s delicate flavors. The biggest advantage of vacuum distillation is that it is much gentler than many traditional dealcoholization technologies.

With its low temperature and short residence time, vacuum distillation can remove alcohol down to <0.5% – 0.02% ABV while capturing the aromas and flavors of the original product, with less damage or stress. Additionally, no water is added in the process which makes it more sustainable than other methods.
