During the day you may also encounter flavourings many times, from a healthy salad to sweet treats or reduced-fat or reduced-sugar products.
A fragrant sauce may enliven your quick, healthy, mid-week lunch. A tasty marinade may moisten meat dishes, accompanied by a mixed salad made tastier with a delicious salad dressing.
Craving for an ice cream on a hot summer afternoon? Luckily, flavourings give you plenty of choice in the taste of this little treat.
Flavourists create palettes of essential flavourings such as vanilla, mint, chocolate, butter and strawberry that lay the foundation for countless sweet goods.
Alongside taste preferences, an increasing number of consumers is demanding low-calorie, low-fat, and low-salt versions of well-known products. Flavourings can help to create tasty food and beverage products so as to reduce the concentration of some ingredients, without impacting the palatability of the food in question.
There are cases where food products have been enriched with specific nutrients or functional ingredients that provide benefits for disease prevention. However, they may come with a tendency to negatively impact the overall taste of the food. Flavours can help to create perfectly enjoyable and tasty foods.
Creating healthy alternatives does not have to mean compromising on taste. Flavourings help to create great tasting healthy food and beverage products that meet people's expectations.
