INNOVATIVE HOP PRODUCTS DESIGNED FOR BREWING AND BEYOND
Most people associate hops solely with beer. Indeed, over the past few centuries, that has been their primary use. In recent years, however, new applications for hops have emerged. We participate in this market segment with a variety of innovative hop products.
Our hop extracts are made from hops via carbon dioxide (CO2) or ethanol solvent processes. Extracts retain the hop’s α-acids, β-acids, essential oils, aroma and bittering characteristics. Hop extracts are highly-concentrated hop products that provide convenience, efficiency, stability, consistency and flexibility to brewers.
Hopsteiner’s Hop Extracts also possess certain antibacterial and antioxidant properties. These special hop products can be used as processing aids for industrial fermentation, as natural aromas in foods, as animal feed, and as antioxidants in cosmetics. (Did you know? Hops have been recognized as a beneficial plant in medicine for centuries.)
