ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, USA [6 June 2018]—Edlong will be a Gold Partner at The Future Food-Tech Summit on June 19th and 20th at the New Lab in Brooklyn, New York. The company will be among more than 250 global food leaders gathered to explore the rapidly evolving landscape of plant-based and alternative proteins, innovative ingredients, personalization, collaborative innovation models, food safety and supply chain distribution.
On Tuesday, June 19th, Edlong Chief Commercial Officer Beth Warren will be a featured speaker at the event, discussing “Permissible Indulgence: The Role of Flavor in Delivering Functional Benefits Without Sacrificing Taste.” The talk will address how indulgence and health could be better aligned as the demand for clean-label and plant-based products grows.
In addition, Edlong will share new ways to increase indulgence and improve taste of plant-based proteins. As part of this demonstration, Edlong will be sampling a vegan, dairy-free dessert reminiscent of a Belgian spice cookie. It will feature authentic taste and indulgent mouthfeel achieved with Edlong’s dairy-free flavors.
“Edlong is a leader when it comes to the innovative use of flavors to create the desired impact in plant protein applications,” said Warren. “We provide technical expertise on improving both mouthfeel and the taste profile to food and beverage companies globally, and we’re eager to share our unmatched knowledge of how our unique Edlong technologies can be used in both familiar and emerging applications.”
In its third year, The Future Food-Tech Summit focuses on the technology, innovation and investment that is transforming the dynamics of the food sector. To learn more, visit futurefoodtechnyc.com.
