IFF Launches New Line of Proprietary Mint Flavors

Posted: March 10, 2009

International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF; New York) has launched a new line of proprietary mint flavors that delivers profiles of popular piperita oils such as Far West, Willamette, Yakima and Madras mints. The line is intended for use as both flavors and extenders.

The mint flavors have been developed from new ingredients discovered by researchers at IFF, who collected samples form the prime mint-growing region in the United States. The mint oils and fractions were then analyzed using IFF’s Generessence analytical techniques to identify more than 325 different compounds in the process.
