Naturex Introduces Kemfe, a New Flavoring Ingredient to Improve Taste

29 Nov 2011 --- Naturex is launching Kemfe, a new flavoring ingredient that has a direct action on taste perception and enhancement.

Nov 29 2011 --- Kemfe is extracted from the Thaumatococcus Daniellii, which grows wild in the West African rain forest. Katemfe is the traditional name for this fruit and has been consumed for hundreds of years by the local people.

This slightly sweet ingredient is very diverse and provides manufacturers with many benefits. Kemfe is used for flavoring purposes; it is capable of improving, enhancing and balancing a wide variety of taste profiles. It can also be used as an effective bitterness masker, thanks to its ability to overcome the perception of off-notes.

Harvested with respect to traditional methods and to sustainable working practices, the edible part of the fruit is quickly frozen. The Naturex dedicated factory then extracts the flavoring ingredient using water extraction.

Katemfe complies with the definition of a natural flavoring preparation according to EU Regulation 1334/2008/EC and should be declared as a flavor.

Kemfe can be used in the flavor industry as well as directly in many Food and Beverage applications such as soft drinks, dairy or savoury products etc.
