Taste Modulation

Taste Modulation solutions for food, beverage and nutrition

Multidimensional Taste

Manufacturers in the food and beverage industry are under growing pressure to produce healthier products without compromising on taste.

This can mean reducing some ingredients to improve nutritional labelling or adding others to boost the health profile, both of which create unique and complex taste challenges. Our taste modulation portfolio leverages a robust toolbox of characterizing and modulating taste solutions to address these multi-dimensional taste challenges and deliver healthy products with the taste consumers love.
