Dairy and Dairy-Free Masking Solutions

Masking off-notes and creating balanced flavor profiles in your dairy, dairy-free, and plant-based applications requires specialized flavor expertise and resources. At Edlong, we bring over a century of focus on the taste of dairy and a cultivated library of hundreds of dairy flavors that can be applied in thousands of combinations to offer the perfect solution for your masking challenges.

Everything Masking Can Be

Whether you’re looking to mask off-notes in plant-based or protein-fortified applications or improve the overall taste profile of your product, Edlong’s global team of dairy-flavor experts is uniquely skilled at leveraging and customizing our best-in-class library of dairy and dairy-free flavors to develop masking solutions for your specific application needs.

Food processing, fortification, heat treatment, the use of plant proteins, and reduction of ingredients like sugar or fat can result in off-notes and the need for masking flavors. No matter what drives your need, we offer expertise in achieving a balance between masking off-notes and letting the intrinsic flavor of your food or beverage shine through.

Often developers only consider flavors at the end of the product development process as a way to mask undesirable attributes. But the key is strategically working with flavors at the onset of the development process. In fact, by optimizing taste profiles throughout the entire product development process, innovation timelines can be accelerated.
