Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0879878A1] The invention provides a beer or similar light-sensitive beverage, which has been treated with a protein that binds riboflavin, resulting in a reduced "sunstruck" flavour formation after exposure of the beverage to light and also in an increased overall flavour stability of the beverage during storage. Suitable proteins include riboflavin-binding protein and flavodoxin.
