Davide Orsi, business development manager, Food & Beverage, said “In soft drink and juice-based beverages, citrus oils undergo rapid decomposition due to their nature. By leveraging our competence in both citrus processing and beverage industry, at Agrumaria Reggina, we decided to share our technologies to stabilize and solubilize unstable components and hydrophobic ingredients from citrus oils. By doing so, our Citrus Spark helps maintaining a true citrus fruit experience without changing the natural composition of delicate flavor components. The result is a unique FTNF Flavour suitable for beverage application and further flavor formulation."
