Flavour

More than just a taste tooI

 

Flavour is far more than just a way to alter taste. Specific flavour types can also serve a variety of marketing roles

A FLAVOUR CAN

target specific demographics and to add excitement
give health and value to finished foods and drinks
help to define a product and give back naturalness and authenticity to processed food
can contribute to get saving and creating very appealing products for food industry that must offer more choice to a more affluent consumer
New flavour sources from nature are being exploited all the time, and for Metroz it is crucial to continues to explore.

SENSORIAL RESTYLING OF YOUR PRODUCTS

The sensorial profile of food must follow the global change of tastes and habits. Consumers seek different things from their flavour choices, so clear contrasts in some of the key themes, eg local vs exotic, healthy vs indulgence, etc. In many cases the use of different raw materials or new technology cannot deliver the level of flavour required, so formulators have to enhance the taste of the foodstuff with an added flavour compound.

Extra acidity sauces and canned food
Fast aging of processed meat
Meat coming from young animals with low flavour profile and intensity
Acid and roasted off notes in hazelnut pastes and praline
Off notes in products added of sweetners
Metallic after taste in fruit juices and canned foods

Are only some of the reasons to study a sensorial restyling

A SOLUTION FOR REPLACING HERBS & SPICES

In the modern food industry, the use of ground spices & herbs is not free from problems.
Their replacement with natural flavours is a delicate task, sometimes with uncertain results; it needs an expert and a reliable partner. Since 30 years Metroz natural flavours have been representing a good alternative to those who want to avoid the sensorial variability of spices and microbial spoilage. Besides simple change or combination of single flavours, we can offer a wide collection of already balanced spicy/herbal flavouring blends.

Good and healthy is the real challenge.

Consumers seek different things from their food choices, included healthiness. Healthier food and drink formulations can necessitate a greater focus on flavour so as to make up for any shortcomings in taste or to mask any unpleasant notes.
