FreshSlice contains no solvent and is highly concentrated. It is created using a mild, low thermal extraction technique, thereby minimizing by-products, which can affect the taste profile of many flavors.
Amaury Roquette, vice president Naturals Platform, Creation, Portfolio, said, “Firmenich’s sustained investment in innovation produced high-performance technologies like Durarome and Flexarome, which are well known in the industry for delivering superior taste experiences. Continuing in this tradition, and to provide customers with differentiated, winning solutions, we have developed FreshSlice, the next generation in citrus oils.”
Sonia Botta, vice president Citrus, said, “The launch of FreshSlice is a significant achievement within our Best-In-Class Citrus program. Together with our extensive global Citrus network of expert flavorists, application specialists, sensory and consumer insights and knowledgeable regional business teams, we can deliver world-class winning solutions to meet our customer’s needs and suit their consumer’s tastes.”
