Therefore, for each juice, each type of edible gelatin and tannin, a clarification test is require before use. Then determine its usage. Under normal circumstances, the amount of gelatin is about 1%. The amount of tannin is about 0.3% to 0.5%. Slowly add to the juice under constant stirring. After mixing uniformly, let stand at room temperature 8-12 for 5-10 hours. If the temperature is too high, the clarification rate will be slow. Turbidity may appear if the temperature is too low.
