Kerry has announced it will release Tastesense Sweet Organic Certified as the first organic-certified sweet modulator for the U.S. beverage marketplace.
Designed to deliver a clean, sweet taste, with a mouthfeel and a balanced flavor profile for organic certified beverages. These include a range of products for which an organic claim is desirable, including, flavored sparkling water, low to no-sugar beverages, functional and energy drinks and both high and low ABV alcoholic beverages.
Kerry’s Tastesense Sweet Organic is the first organic-certified sweet modulator designed to meet the National Organic Program (NOP) standards listed in 7CFR part 205. It is available in powder format for easy addition and rapid dissolution. It is halal-certified, kosher-suitable and TTB-approvable. It is also clean for labeling purposes and can be listed on the ingredient label as “natural flavoring.”
Angela Getzel, business development director at Kerry, said, “The North American market continues to move toward beverages with clear, clean label claims. Product marketers and formulators alike are looking intently at organic ingredients. Kerry is the first supplier on the market with an organic-certified modulator that enables customers to reach these important goals. There is a significant opportunity to serve the growing market for refreshing organic beverages.”
Getzel continued, “Tastesense Sweet Organic Certified not only brings sweetness but also adds the important mouthfeel perception—often missing when sugar content is reduced or eliminated. This organic solution enhances the overall flavor profile of a beverage to deliver a holistic taste experience. Taste is king with consumers, so it’s vital organic beverages have taste profiles consumers will love. Our solution in conjunction with our extensive organic certified flavor portfolio helps deliver on that goal.”
