INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS

The Right Combination of Flavor and Functionality

 

Firmenich integrated solutions bring unparalleled consumer preference by combining our traditional flavors with proprietary functional solutions to deliver superior taste experiences in your product.

 

 

THE ADVANTAGE OF INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS

 

Taste Modulation

Our high-performance technologies help impart authentic flavor and optimize the taste profile of healthier products without compromising consumer preference. Our portfolio includes sugar, salt & fat removal solutions, mouthfeel enhancers, stevia maskers, acid maskers, and bitter blocking.

 

Functional Ingredients

Whether incorporating plant proteins in meat analogs or fiber for enhanced nutrition and wellness, our integrated solutions enable you to delight consumers with superior taste while delivering functional benefits

 

Masking

Great flavor sometimes means removing what the consumer doesn’t want to taste. Integrated solutions are ideal for minimizing off-notes and unpleasant after tastes through precise masking capabilities.

 

Texturizing

We can re-create the best mouthfeel, bite and chew to mimic any experience to craft your product to your consumers’ expectation.

 

Protection & Delivery

Your Flavor Should Perform to Your Requirements

Flavors are typically mixtures of volatile and delicate molecules. Our Encapsolutions® portfolio of products protects these flavors from exposure to evaporation, oxidation, base reactions, extreme pH, heat and light throughout the manufacturing and distribution process. The result is a final product delivered to consumers bursting with flavor.

 

  • Protection: Understanding processing conditions means that we know how to apply the right level of protection to ensure that the flavor is not lost before reaching the consumer.

  • Better Handling: Ease of use in the factory and homogenous mixing ensures that no flavor is lost. By limiting opportunity for interactions with other components in the food base, we minimize the risks of the flavor profile being altered.

  • Controlled Release: Protecting the flavor through the process is the first step. It is also critical to control the moment of delivery. Firmenich’s systems guarantee that the flavors are released at just the right moment to please the consumer.
