Natural extracts add a taste kick to beverages, yoghurts or chocolate

“Enjoy taste. enjoy diversity.” is the name of the new product concept, which the Plantextrakt Business Unit of the Martin Bauer Group is presenting for the first time at the Food ingredients Europe at the end of November 2011. The concept focuses on the vast range of taste experiences that can be achieved by adding natural Tea and Herbal Extracts to beverages, dairy products or confectionary.

It is a well-known fact that tastes vary and yet taste constitutes the basis for successful products. This is the very idea adopted by the Plantextrakt Business Unit of the Martin Bauer Group. The Group from Vestenbergsgreuth (Germany) will be using the Food ingredients Europe as the platform to introduce its new “enjoy taste. enjoy diversity.” product concept that presents the multifarious taste experiences of Tea and Herbal Extracts. Plantextrakt shows how natural dry or liquid extracts, strong tea infusions or tea flavours can add a very special touch to both beverages and food products with reference to 15 sample products. Potential customers can try the exemplary RTD beverages, yoghurts, chocolate or bonbons from the “enjoy taste. enjoy diversity.” concept on the Plantextrakt stand. “We are certain that our new product idea has something to suit every taste   irrespective of whether customers come from the beverage, dairy product or confectionary industry,” Oliver Hehn, Marketing Manager at Plantextrakt, explains.

A fresh or exotic taste of herbs or tea
Plantextrakt has devided its “enjoy taste. enjoy diversity.” concept into four categories. If a manufacturer wants to give his products a particularly fresh taste, then Lemon Grass or Peppermint would be two examples of the ingredients used by Plantextrakt. If a herbal taste is preferred, there are many pleasantly tasting alternatives available, such as Chamomile, Lemon Balm or even Cinnamon. Plantextrakt is also presenting exotic taste experiences at the fair: Baobab extract produced from the African Baobab tree is particularly popular at the moment, as well as Acerola, which is traditionally grown in Central America and Brazil. The special feature of Plantextrakt’s Acerola extract is that its high vitamin C content is solely attributable to the fruit and no vitamin C is added. Furthermore, Plantextrakt is demonstrating ways in which the beverage, dairy product and confectionary industries can use tea in their products. There is an increasing demand for strong tea infusions here, which are produced without any concentration stages and therefore offer a particularly authentic tea flavour. “We want to use our “enjoy taste. enjoy diversity.” product concept to demonstrate the potential diversity of Tea and Herbal Extracts to the trade visitors in Paris,” Oliver Hehn puts it in a nutshell. “We also enjoy developing customised taste experiences on this basis, together with our customers.”

You will find the Plantextrakt Business Unit of the Martin Bauer Group on Stand 1 G 35 at the Food ingredients Europe in Paris.
