Ropella Industry Expertise

Although flavor seems a simple concept on the surface, it is actually quite complex. It comprises not just literal taste, but is also strongly influenced by other senses, including smell and sight. Foods actually have two separate (albeit related) flavor smells – one sensed through inhalation before ingestion, and one sensed through exhalation while the food is still in the mouth. The appearance of food can also affect our sensation of flavor, especially where coloration is concerned. Finally, expectation can influence the flavors we taste; as anyone who has bitten into something expecting something totally different can attest.

In recent years, the debate of natural versus artificial ingredients has taken the forefront of the flavor industry. In practice, though, there is often little to no difference between the two, except for the process through which it is obtained. In most cases, artificial flavors are at least as safe (if not safer, due to the controlled nature of the reactions that produce them) as natural flavors. Still, to keep up with shifting consumer demands, flavor companies must likewise shift their development processes towards more natural solutions.
