During a presentation at Flavorcon 2015, Firmenich will discuss how it is exploring new territory in delivering taste and nutrition by leveraging its strong expertise in seafood and flavors.
Marine protein hydrolysates (MPH), or marine peptides, represent the new frontier in the delivery of high nutritional value from sustainable sources.
Emerging science is showing how MPH in very low concentrations can complement whey proteins to enhance their nutritional value and functionality, and also effectively manage post-prandial glycemic index, support muscle growth and recovery and even improve and prolong satiety.

Propanediol as an Alternative Flavor Carrier
Naturally-derived propanediol, an alternative to petroleum-based propylene glycol and glycerin, can be used as a carrier for flavors and extracts. This presentation will report findings on various technical studies showing the performance of propanediol as a flavor carrier, including its solubility properties, preservative efficacy and flavor enhancement of some types of flavor chemicals. Propanediol is s-GRAS from the U.S. FDA, FEMA GRAS-approved and meets the quality specifications of USP-FCC and USP-NF. It is certified 100% bio-based by the USDA.
