So, what is polyvinylpolypyrrolidone?

Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone, commonly abbreviated as PVPP, is a synthetic food-grade ingredient that is widely used in the food and beverage industry as a clarifying agent. It is highly water-soluble and can effectively remove impurities such as tannins, phenolic compounds, and proteins from various beverages, including beer, wine, and fruit juices. PVPP works by forming a complex with the targeted impurities, which are subsequently removed through filtration. Despite its synthetic nature, PVPP is considered safe for human consumption and has been approved by numerous regulatory agencies worldwide.
