February 2008 Flavoring Ingredient Roundup

Feb. 4, 2008

Yeast extract improves flavor

Maxarome Select yeast extract can help reduce sodium and replace MSG while creating a whole new flavor dimension especially in salted snacks and chips. This natural, clean-tasting yeast extract is effective in creating balance, as well as accelerating flavor intensity and release – while having just a clean, neutral taste profile of its own. It also enables a clean label.

Optimize flavor

While consumers may want low-cal beverages, high-intensity sweeteners such as sucralose and aspartame often cause undesirable aftertastes. Fit masks off flavors and unpleasant aftertastes and enhances beverage flavors as well. Making the right balance of sweetness and sourness in a beverage is easy because it has a lingering, mildly sour taste that complements high-intensity sweeteners. It’s label-friendly and, as with all lactic acid ingredients, it is safe, nutritious and delicious.
