Flavor strategies for sugar reduction

31 Jul 2018 --- Sugar reduction is also an area for Sensient that cannot be ignored. FoodIngredientsFirst spoke with Keerthana Perumbala, from Sensient during IFT in Chicago. “It comes as no surprise that sugar is a highly controversial ingredient. There are so many projects that seek to reduce sugar, government strategies and new regulations about how much sugar a product should contain, as the world tries to reduce obesity and other weight-related health problems.” At the Sensient stand, Perumbala discussed sugar reduction comparison between a full-sugared cookie and a cookie that contained 30 percent less sugar, to see how they compared. “Consumers don’t want to sacrifice on taste – so we wanted to display this side by side comparison and see what the reaction was,” she adds.

Flavor trends for 2018 and beyond – Sensient Flavors

08 Dec 2017 --- Sensient Flavors’ Barbara Lezzer describes some of the trends we should be looking out for in 2018 and beyond: “We are seeing a lot of complexity coming into the products, and this is across beverages as well as sweet categories.” This means that consumers are now looking for more “layered” products. Botanicals like herbs and spices are a big trend, Lezzer notes, and they also offer opportunities for decoration. For example, they can communicate a health halo in a cocktail. Spices offer support for sweet and savory combinations, and in beverages, there is also the opportunity to broaden the appeal of non-alcoholic drinks to an adult audience.
