Flavor Producers, LLC will showcase flavor and extract innovations at the 2022 Natural Products Expo West tradeshow in Anaheim, CA.
Flavor Producers has developed its portfolio of natural and organic flavors and extracts through Tasteful and Transparent Technologies, utilizing plant-based sourcing, extract technology and regulatory support. The Rutz and Trü Brüz portfolios are designed to offer product developers options for transparent labeling with health and wellness food and beverage products.
This year at Natural Products Expo West, the concepts from their Transparently Delicious theme include:
- Organic Blush Beauty beverage which includes aloe vera and B vitamins with an organic watermelon and hibiscus taste profile.
- Organic Sicilian Lemon Cold Brew Shandy made with Italian roast coffee. This non-alcoholic beverage is a twist on a traditional shandy that replaces beer with an organic Trü Brüz coffee extract.
- Black Magic Popcorn, air-popped and layered with organic flavors including black garlic, roasted butter and honey.
- Ruby Pomegranate Elderberry Chocolate Bark, a chocolate bark utilizing an organic pomegranate elderberry flavor with plant-based ingredients, including organic sunflower seeds, puffed quinoa and organic hibiscus flowers.
Tony Moore, chief innovation officer at Flavor Producers, said, “Flavor Producers has expanded that commitment to natural and organic flavor development through the expansion of our application capabilities. We have invested in the expansion of our application research footprint over the last eight months in Sharonville, OH by creating a dedicated Innovation Center, recently completed in March 2022, that includes a new pilot plant, additional bakery, confection, dairy/dairy alternative and beverage product development capabilities and a new sensory testing center to support our ongoing customer demand to deliver taste complexity and transparency for clean label food and beverages.”
Beth Warren, chief commercial officer at Flavor Producers, said, “The pursuit of wellness has extended to more lifestyle options with food and beverages. The preference for plant-based ingredients, beauty benefits, convenient and healthy snacks and more options for spiritless cocktails that are organic adds a greater challenge for the product developer to achieve the expected functional benefits and delicious taste consumers expect in the final product.”
