Cider's Chemical Fingerprints
John Edwards presented "Chemical Fingerprints of Cider" at the United States Association of Cider Makers annual conference in Baltimore Maryland (CiderCon) in February 2018.
The full title of this workshop was The Complex Fingerprint Analysis of Cider and other Alcoholic Beverages by Quantitative NMR Spectroscopy.
What is NMR? Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is an analytical chemistry technique used in quality control and research for determining the content and purity of a sample as well as its molecular structure. What can NMR Spectroscopy do for Cider? Interested in nutritional labels? Wonder what the cost is to do an analysis and get your own label? Have a stuck fermentation? Trying to set up a baseline for tracking terroir? Need help analyzing cider or other beverages? NMR can do all of the above, albeit not all of this is now being done with cider. However in the wine industry NMR is used to track vintages and terroir, so it is perhaps just a matter of time.
