Taste Improvement (Masking)
With 100+ years of dairy flavor experience, a global team of application experts, and the world’s largest library of dairy and diary-free building blocks, Edlong is uniquely qualified to help you mask off-notes and create balanced flavor profiles to ensure your products’ success.
Dairy Can Be The Solution to Masking Off-Notes
The increasing consumer demand for better-for-you, environmentally friendly, and protein-fortified foods and beverages comes with an inherent challenge: the need to mask off-notes often associated with the novel ingredients required to develop these products. As taste continues to be the #1 driver of consumers’ food and beverage preferences, we understand that eliminating undesirable flavor attributes is critical to your product’s success.
Our team of flavorists are experts in leveraging our comprehensive dairy flavor library, which includes flavors designed specifically for masking, to eliminate and hide off-notes.
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.Laura Enriquez Edlong Master Scientist, Strategic Applications
Authentic Dairy & Dairy-Free Solutions
Edlong’s sweetness enhancement capabilities deliver a host of potential benefits to meet your application’s requirements. From shortening the onset of sweetness to increasing sweetness peak and reducing sweetness linger, to complimenting and leveraging existing or inherent sugar already in your product (i.e., fructose in fruit juices, lactose in milk, etc.), or even helping suppress acidity, bitterness, and astringency as a holistic approach.
The extensive knowledge of our food and sensory scientists, chefs and applications experts can deliver the masking solutions you need to offer your consumers improved nutrition and healthier products that taste great.
