BITTER BLOCKER TECHNOLOGY
Food and Beverages
Nutrition Meets Taste
Food and beverages can be both healthy and tasty – and we’re here to help. We improve the taste of most products with bitter, earthy, astringent ingredients including caffeine, alternative sweeteners, Stevia, reduced sodium, and bitter botanicals in most applications – all while supporting reduced sugar. Our bitter blockers for food and beverage are sustainable, non-gmo, kosher, organic compliant, and much more, helping you meet your customers’ needs.
We block bitter taste through a natural, patent-pending chemical reaction so that the benefits of your ingredients shine and your taste profile is enhanced. Whether you are launching products with alternative proteins or more mainstream ingredients, we are here to help. Bitter blockers for food and beverage products work to improve the overall taste profile of your products.
Functional foods and beverages options are growing rapidly. Often, those healthy ingredients that are enhancing our lives are also not as delicious as we may hope they would be. The balance of taste with these ingredients in food and beverage products takes a partnership between a team of taste experts that want you to succeed. We get it, we’re food scientists.
