Givaudan Develops New Lemon and Lime Flavors

Givaudan (Dübendorf, Switzerland) has created 10 new lemon and lime flavors for its widely publicized TasteTrek Citrus collection. The new flavors are variations of traditional citrus blends, and have been developed in part from data collected at the citrus grove of University of California, Riverside (UCR). The collection includes India lime (sweet, with notes of blood orange, lemon and lime candy with hints of light kiwi, and a mild grapefruit finish), lo porto (exotic lemon flavor with a green-fruity, floral profile with hints of jasmine and candy-banana elements) and femminello (light, fruity, astringent lemon with a sweetness and kaffirlime qualities) among others.

Of the new flavors, Dawn Streich, global product manager, citrus, said, “[Consumers] want great-tasting products relevant to their lifestyle and need for refreshment … For the beverage and food industry, this new expanded ingredient palette, combined with our technology, offers our customers unique, authentic and brand differentiating flavors to help increase their market success with new citrus product launches.”
