New innovations and technologies at this year’s Institute of Food Technologists Expo…

Flavor Modulation for Better Health

Mastertaste introduced new flavor modulation technology aimed at lowering sodium and caloric contents in foods and beverages. The company’s natural salt modulation technology purportedly cuts sodium by up to half while boosting both overall flavor profile and salinity perception, without an aftertaste. Mastertaste’s sweet/beverage modulation technology aims to reduce calories and preserve flavor, even in alcoholic beverages, and may improve aftertaste in products containing diet sweeteners.

Natural Savory Flavors

DSM Food Specialties showed off its meat-free, yeast extract-based natural flavors. The boiled range included chicken and beef varieties imparting an aroma similar to the first pan drippings from the roasting process, sans the roasted flavor. The range is intended for use in soups, sauces and processed meat.
