TruMask™

Bitter blocker that enhances sweetness 

The Perfect Curve of Subtle Sweetness

TruMask™ bitter blocker is the next generation of taste enhancement technology. TruMask™ enhances bitter blocking capabilities by also providing a near instantaneous sweetness on the tongue that naturally rounds out the flavor profile. TruMask™ can be used in unison with sweeteners or as a stand alone to bring a hint of sweetness while blocking negative taste attributes. 

We tend to recommend TruMask™ for sugar-free products and with products looking to strengthen their sweetness profile. TruMask™ bitter blocker performs well in traditional mediums where you would have originally found ample sugar. In fact, TruMask™ bitter blocker can reduce customers’ needs for sugar and sugar substitutes through its ability to enhance sweetness. TruMask™ is able to stimulate sweetness receptors while masking negative flavors.

TruMask™ bitter blocker is available in various concentrations to meet your project needs.

TruMask™ is listed as a Natural Flavor.

PROVEN SUCCESS

As a stand-alone, TruMask™ has a track record of success as a bitter blocker and also partners well with our other “Tru” products, which can amplify the effects of our clean-label taste technology. 

TruMask™ bitter blocker is being successfully used with many ingredients including: cannabis, CBD, hemp, caffeine, sports drinks, MCT, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, alternative sweeteners, Stevia, spirits, dressings, and dips in most delivery forms including gummies, drinks, chewables, and tinctures.

Simple, natural, essential ingredients that build a cleaner taste profile. 

TruMask™ masks the bitterness of active ingredients and it’s the healthier, all-natural choice.
