Sensient’s Sweet, Savory and Beverage divisions showcased complete solutions for products with authentic sensory profiles and amazing taste sensations, supporting Europe, The Middle East and Africa. Visitors to the company’s booth were able to experience a whole new world of natural flavours and extracts, as well as a broad portfolio of sauces, inclusions and fillings for bakery, confectionery and dairy applications. Sensient’s “Trends to Taste” area revealed the most on-trend flavourings, displaying an entire collection of novel solutions ranging from traditional berry options to more exotic and unusual variants such as floral notes for products with a wellness positioning.

“FiE proved to be the perfect platform for introducing our exciting product ranges and technologies to the market. We were able to successfully demonstrate that in terms of our flavour creativity, the sky’s the limit – and that aspects such as naturalness and health don’t have to mean a lack of indulgence”, says Simon Daw, Marketing Director, Sensient Sweet Flavors Europe. “We are delighted with the positive response to our products and look forward to working on exciting new projects with customers.”

With health issues a growing concern amongst consumers, reducing sodium and fat is high on the agenda of many manufacturers. Sensient showcased different portfolios which enable such “unhealthy” ingredients to be cut without sensory impact. For seasonings, soups, sauces and dressings, ready meals, processed meat, cheese, snacks, canned products and many more, Sensient’s Taste Sensations range comprises flavourings that enhance the umami sensation and compensate for salt and fat reduction in terms of taste and mouthfeel. These exciting solutions are vegan, and free from calories, salt, monosodium glutamate, palm oil and GMOs. They are produced using the company’s own, high quality raw materials and ingredients and, of course, its flavouring expertise. The Umami Enhancer improves mouthfeel, supports a clean label declaration and can easily be added to existing flavour concepts. The Long Lasting Enhancer makes fat reduction of up to 30% possible without compromising on taste, while the clean label Sodium Replacer is perfect for salt reduced products (up to 30%) and also acts as a masking agent for off notes.

Sensient’s Beverage experts presented a whole range of flavourings for all kinds of drinks – from carbonated soft drinks and juiced waters to alcoholic beverages and coffee. Visitors to the stand were able to enjoy a selection of freshly brewed, flavoured ground coffee variants, including vanilla, caramel and spiced orange. With rising concerns over sugary drinks, Sensient had low sugar and sugar-free “Juicy Water” concepts on hand, such as samples with sucralose in berry and floral flavours. The company’s experts also demonstrated how APSS (All-Purpose Sweet Solutions™) and Smoothenol® 2G can make low calorie drinks with or without alcohol just as indulgent as the real thing. For cocktail lovers, examples of low alcohol RTD beverages with flavour-masked alcohol burn, as well as reduced sugar concepts were all available to explore.

The combination of high quality caramel with natural extracts and exciting flavours allows for new taste sensations, including exotic fruits, spiced chai variants, zesty salted orange and spicy notes such as cardamom, cinnamon and ginger extract, to mention just a few. Also available as low calorie versions, Sensient’s sumptuous Flavoured Caramel range is a real innovation that enables manufacturers to stand out from the crowd.
