We've granted administrative approval, pending rulemaking, expanding the authorized use of chitosan to now include clarification and fining. The amount authorized for use has also been increased, and now must not exceed 500g/hL of wine.  

We periodically grant administrative approval to new wine treating materials and processes that we've determined are consistent with good commercial practice (see 27 CFR 24.250). To see all the administrative approvals we've granted, visit our Wine and Juice Treating Materials and Processes for Domestic Wine Production page at TTB.gov.

You’re able to use the approved treatments at your winery without filing an application with us, as long as you meet any listed limitations. Administrative approval applies only to wine distributed domestically and does not imply the treatment's acceptability in foreign markets.

Keep in mind, we may remove treatments from the approved list based on future rulemaking, so check our Wine and Juice Treating Materials and Processes for Domestic Wine Production page at TTB.gov regularly to find the up-to-date status of administratively approved wine materials and processes.
