Trend: Ingredients for Functional Foods
Product: Taste for Life®
Symrise is presenting several taste modifiers and flavor enhancers. SymLife® Mask demonstrates competencies in encapsulation technology, further strengthened by LC Taste®, a patented, advanced, liquid chromatography process that allows technical teams to analyze extracted food or pharmaceutical products. By identifying potential masking components and assessing in real time their effect in mitigating negative effects, the technology serves as a bridge between receptor and sensory science.
Addressing the medical imperative to reduce the added salt in processed and restaurant foods by half the amount are SymLife® Salt natural and salt enhancers. They provide a complete clean label, non-intrusive flavor solution, delivering a desired amount of saltiness. They overcome the sodium reduction challenges of KCL masking agents and flavor enhancing technologies, offering up to a 50% sodium reduction while maintaining salty perceptions.
Other flavors for healthier, clean label formulations are SymLife® Sweet, providing up to 35% reduction in sugar in beverages, confectioneries, and bakery products; and SymLife® Umami, a cost effective, great tasting alternative to MSG and HVP.
Symrise’s tropical fruit flavor collection—go tropicals!—features true-to-life natural fruit taste of less familiar varieties. Some novel tropical fruit flavors are effective in masking the off-tastes of various vitamins and minerals.
The flavors are part of Symrise’s taste for life® platform, a flavor development initiative of superior flavors that demonstrate how the company is combining holistic health with pure pleasure, “making the tastes people love.”
