MODE OF ACTION AND HYDROLYSIS
MODE OF ACTION
Velcorin® (dimethyl dicarbonate, DMDC) is added during the production of the beverage. Even at low concentrations, Velcorin® is very effective against typical microorganisms such as yeast, bacteria and mold. Velcorin® penetrates the cell and deactivates enzymes, leading to the destruction of the microorganisms.

Prominent bodies, such as the EU Scientific Committee on Food, the FDA in the United States and the JECFA of the WHO, have all confirmed the use of dimethyl dicarbonate in the beverage industry. The production of Velcorin® is certified according to ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2005 and FSSC 22000. Velcorin® is also certified to meet Halal & Kosher requirements.
