Flavors

There are as many flavors as there are ways to enjoy them. We are continually exploring and developing new flavors to meet the evolving taste preferences of consumers around the world.

Flavor Delivery Systems

Flavor can be delivered in a variety of ways—it all depends on the product and desired effect. Blending science with art, we help you craft the ideal form, function and flavor to meet your needs.

Liquids

Easy to apply and incorporate into a wide variety of products, from gels to pastes to liquids and more.

Spray Dry

Offer a burst of initial flavor; a great option when the base product makes liquid difficult to use.

Flavor Crystals

Add visual appeal, mask active ingredients, and deliver timed flavor release.

Powders

Perfect for seasoning, shaking or sprinkling for a hint of flavor.

Flavor Modifiers

Looking to give your product a little something special? Maybe you need to turn up the impact of a specific flavor, minimize the presence of healthy additives, or improve the mouth feel of a powdered mix. Our applications team is in the lab every day, exploring unique product concepts that enhance flavor in new and exciting ways.

Flavor with Modifying Properties

FMP or taste modification — can help enhance or change a beverage taste experience. Our FMPs can boost sweetness in the absence of sugar, mask bitterness and astringency caused by added ingredients, or enhance mouth feel by reducing grittiness.

Product Forms

Soft Drinks

Once the leader of the Beverage Category, soft drinks are going through a significant transformation. Traditional sodas will continue to have a place with a segment of consumers, while others are in search of new and specialty craft soda experiences.

Still & Sparkling Water

As consumers’ consumption of soda has decreased, water — in still and sparkling form — has become the most consumed beverage category. We’ll work with you to explore mainstream and novel flavor profiles, and find your next flavored water bestseller.

Coffee

In both food service and retail, coffee has been the go-to morning drink in the United States. Coffee is now an all-day option to boost energy and alertness, and brings people together in social settings. Whether the coffee is shelf-stable or refrigerated, flavors can be used to enhance or complement the coffee taste and aromatic qualities. Caramel, mocha, vanilla and more. If the consumer wants it, we can deliver.

Sports Nutrition

Sports Nutrition is a beverage category experiencing tremendous growth as offerings are designed to appeal to everyone from a star athlete to an everyday person wanting a healthy lifestyle. The sports nutrition drink category inspires new flavors and delivery formats. Dry powder blends, pressed powder tablets or liquids can be designed to deliver pleasing flavor while masking the bitterness or astringency of healthy additives.

Craft Beer & Cider

For canned or bottled beer and hard cider, liquid flavor can create a unique taste experience. Flavor profiles can be as diverse as the base products themselves — from sweet brown to honey to citrus. If you can imagine it, we can help you create it.

Tea

Iced tea in ready-to-drink cans or bottles is a great foundation for flavor — from citrus to orchard fruit to berry and more. Loose-leaf tea and teabags can be infused with flavor crystals that protect the product on the shelf and dissolve when added to liquid, creating a burst of flavor.
