Edlong to Present Technology Snapshot on “Functional Natural Dairy Flavors” at Clean Label Conference

March 21, 2019

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, USA [21 March 2019]—Edlong will be a sponsor and exhibitor at Global Food Forums’ 2019 Clean Label Conference, March 26 and 27 at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, Illinois. This year’s conference focuses on practical, objective formulation advice for formulators developing products with simplified ingredient labels.

On Tuesday, March 26, Edlong Senior Sensory Scientist Julie Drainville will give a technology snapshot presentation on “Functional Natural Dairy Flavors.” The talk will address the unique attributes of select natural dairy flavors that provide mouthfeel benefits in lower sugar applications, and how they can be used to add functionality to both dairy and dairy-free products. The company will also have a tabletop exhibit at the event to further discuss how Natural Dairy Flavors work to uniquely provide both the foundational character of dairy as well as the flavor function required to change perceptions of both taste and textural attributes.

“We’ll be demonstrating how we help food innovators rethink their use of dairy and dairy-free flavors to not only meet their formulation goals, but also commercialize their products faster,” said Edlong Chief Commercial Officer Beth Warren. “For example, our unique global expertise in achieving the taste of dairy—adding authentic, often unique taste profiles to plant-based formulations—gives our customers a distinct advantage. The use of these flavors has expanded to plant based protein applications where the foundational character of richness is often absent” Together, we can create healthier products with reduced sugar, salt or fat that provide indulgence without sacrificing the delicious taste consumers expect.”

In its sixth year, the Clean Label Conference is the industry’s only product development event dedicated to providing practical, impartial, “how-to” formulation advice to R&D and applied food scientists striving to create simplified ingredient labels.
