Flavor and Fragrances

Overview Industry Overview:

While few consumers know the science behind flavors and fragrances, they know what they like – and those aromas and tastes drive their buying decisions. These factors offer opportunities for extending lines and creating new products. Science can change a food's flavor, for instance, by changing its smell yet keeping its taste similar. Changing the color can change consumer expectations.

Year over year, the flavors and fragrances industry continues not just to thrive, but to grow. Artificial, natural, and nature-identical flavorants can be combined with numerous fragrances – essential oils, natural extracts, or aroma chemicals – to create an ideal eating experience. Sample preparation, detection and analysis are some of the steps needed to create products that capture consumers’ senses.
