Fining is the addition of a reactive or adsorptive substance to remove or reduce the concentration of one or more undesirable constituents. Fining agents are added to juices, wines, and sparkling wine cuveés for the purposes of enhancing clarity, color, aroma, flavor, and/or stability modification. Fining agents can be grouped according to their general nature.
