Sensient’s range of Mexican flavors for soft drinks

mexico_shutterstock_Vector pro_300dpiSensient Flavors presents a new range of all-natural Mexican flavors for the production of soft drinks. Featuring horchata and tangerine profiles, novel innovative twists have been developed by combining lime & cactus, chili & mango and strawberry & guava.

Samples that have already been brought to life by the company’s application engineers include tangerine & horchata ice tea versions. In addition, they proactively created chili-mango, strawberry-guava and lime-cactus juice drinks with a juice content of 10%. These are just a few examples; all the flavors can be used to produce an endless variety of non-alcoholic drinks.

Sensient’s experts collaborated closely with their Mexican colleagues to address the growing consumer interest in ethnic specialties that are as authentic as possible. The new range has been heavily influenced by the local specialty, “Agua Frescas”.

These refreshing, everyday drinks, which are available from street vendors and sold in bodegas, restaurants and juice bars, consist of fruit, sugar, water and ice, and are sometimes refined with milk. Each region has its own versions, made using locally available fruit, and became the company’s source of inspiration.

Hence, we have worked on a flavor range that captures the true characteristics of the Mexican palate and lifestyle and brings it to European consumers,” said Stefano Asti, Technical Director at Sensient Flavors Beverage Europe.

“We are confident that this new range will enable manufacturers to bring outstanding soft drink products to the shelf that satisfy consumer curiosity and tap into the current trend for innovative and unique taste experiences.”

Sensient Flavors uses proprietary technologies to create value-added flavor systems and customised solutions for customers in the beverage, sweet and savory segments. Sensient Flavors is a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corporation, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of colors, flavors and fragrances.
