A novel, robust and fast ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-MS method has been developed for the simultaneous quantification of reduced glutathione (GSH) and oxidised glutathione (GSSG) in grape juice, wine and model wine solution. Sample preparation is minimal and does not require derivatisation. The method has very good performance in terms of sensitivity and selectivity. The limit of detection was 0.002 and 0.001 mg L(-1) for GSH and GSSG, respectively. The amount of GSH and GSSG released by commercial glutathione-enriched inactivated dry yeast preparations (GSH-IDYs) into a model solution was assessed. Significant differences in the amount of GSH and/or GSSG released into a model wine by different GSH-IDYs were observed, with ethanol influencing this release under certain conditions. The GSH and GSSG levels in grape juice fermentations supplemented with GSH-IDY were also assessed in relation to different addition times during fermentation. GSH-IDY addition can lead to elevated wine GSH levels, provided the supplementation is done early during alcoholic fermentation.
