Leading up to Flavorcon, we will share session and speaker details. One of which is "Bitter Suppression – Functional Flavors Part of the Puzzle," featuring Kathryn D. Deibler, Ph.D., Haleon principal scientist, flavors.
In light of bitterness usually being a negative flavor characteristic, several approaches to bitter suppression will be reviewed. Functional flavors reduce bitterness using two primary mechanisms of action – select receptor blocking and psychophysics mixture suppression. Since receptor-blocking molecules are selective for bitter receptors, (and bitter molecules are also selective), the right functional flavors need to be used.
• Mechanism of bitter taste perception
• Mechanism for bitter suppression by functional flavors
• Use of bitter suppression in OTC product
