Masking & Mouthfeel

Today’s consumers want to eat healthier without sacrificing taste. Edlong® dairy flavors provide unique functionality to improve mouthfeel and mask off-notes for almost any application.

Consumers are demanding healthier foods for increased energy, vitamin and mineral enrichment, cholesterol reduction and relief from joint pain. But consumers want products that are healthy and delicious. Edlong flavors help deliver both.

Edlong specializes in helping food manufacturers overcome the taste of active food ingredients by masking flavor — transforming even vegan and gluten-free applications with cost-effective, palate-pleasing alternatives. Our balance of food science and art delivers functionality that enhances products beyond dairy taste to also increase creaminess, add richness and indulgence, and elevate the intangibles that bring foods and beverages to life.


Edlong offers a full line of masking flavors that boost taste and overcome the bitter, metallic and off-notes that plant-based ingredients and better-for-you additives leave behind.


When dairy commodities are reduced or eliminated, mouthfeel flavors replace their richness and creaminess, resulting in products with the same deliciousness as the full commodity versions.
