Sensient Launches Range of Natural, Fat-Soluble Flavorings for Indulgent Applications


27 Mar 2017 --- Sensient Flavors have introduced a range of innovative fat-soluble flavors for fillings in bakery, confectionery and dairy applications. Nine sophisticated taste profiles have been developed as internal concepts, either as single or dual flavors: apple & almond, banana split, butter mint, cherry, mango, orange & ginger, peanut, praline and smoked coconut. All of the flavors are natural, suitable for vegan concepts and are Kosher certified. In addition, the peanut and almond flavours are ‘nut free’ nut flavors.

One key application for the new range is premium filled chocolates, in which the flavors are incorporated into the chocolate ganache filling. To achieve special visual appeal, Sensient Colors’ Spectraflecks can be used. These are colored film particles that add colour to food products and provide, for example, chocolate coatings with colorful highlights. 

With comprehensive flavoring expertise as a core competence, Sensient is able to create authentic flavor profiles. Depending on the concept, the company develops tailored solutions in collaboration with its customers. To create multisensory experiences, Sensient’s experts can make use of a broad portfolio of complementary inclusions, including flavoured sugar crystals, popcorn, ground cookies and toffees. In addition, sauces and fillings also play a key role when it comes to exciting texture combinations; products with tailored viscosities are available, from caramels, chocolate and fruit-based varieties to coffee variants. In general, the sky’s the limit when it comes to product development.

“The global chocolate market is set to grow in volume by 5% and increase in value by more than 10% between 2015 and 2020. The challenge for manufacturers is to create products that stand out from the competition. We recognize the consumer demand for sophisticated sensory experiences and, whether that need presents itself as bold flavoring combinations, exciting texture pairings or a unique appearance, with our portfolio, we are perfectly prepared to develop products that are bang on trend and fulfil the most important aspect of sweet treats — being indulgent,” says Simon Daw, Director of Marketing at Sensient Sweet Flavors Europe.

Start-up focus: Taking insect protein into America’s snacks pantries

19 Mar 2018 --- Most Westerners shudder at the prospect of eating insects, but attitudes towards them vary dramatically across the globe. In fact, around two billion people already eat bugs as part of their diet. As the global population continues to rise, more and more people are looking for insect protein as a sustainable food source. Not only do many insects, including crickets, contain all nine essential amino acids, this type of protein is also sustainable, especially in comparison to traditional meat sources. It takes one gallon of water to produce one pound of insect protein. Almost two thousand gallons of water, by contrast, are poured into every pound of beef that lands on a plate. US-based start-up Chirps Chips is on a mission to educate Western society on the benefits of insect protein in a corn snack.
