[Tartarus depuratus]

Tartar: a stone that dissolves stones

Tartar is a particularly interesting substance. It settles in wine bottles and barrels and is the unloved child of wine lovers, which must be filtered out by decanter. However, tartar has very interesting properties. It has long been used in baking as a leavening agent for heavy doughs and in dyeing to regulate the pH value. In modern medicine it has fallen into oblivion, but in naturopathy it is of great importance. Its importance can be seen in its name. After all, in Greek mythology, Tartarus is the deepest place of the underworld where the Titans themselves are imprisoned.

What is Tartarus depuratus?

Tartarus is the salt of tartaric acid. It can be obtained from the tartaric acid produced during the pressing of grapes. This acid is obtained by titration and then further processed. The wine drinker therefore decants his wine. During prolonged storage, tartar can precipitate and form a solid sediment in the bottle. This is unpleasant to drink and undesirable. The tartar in the bottle is a mixture of different substances. From this mixture, the pure tartaric acid is obtained chemically by separating the substances.
