Seductive aroma and tasty flavor
In the food industry – for ready and semi-ready meals – all that counts is taste, quick preparation and the excitement of the meal. The aroma of a cake made from a baking mix in the oven and the flavor of a soup on the palate – it is all a part of the customer’s final experience.
With glycosylation, 4GENE is able to modify a wide variety of flavor molecules in such a way that the ideal flavor is released at a defined point in time. Enzymes and moisture are the key to this, which can be used to vary the defined time. This gives the food industry the opportunity to add defined flavors to the overall experience of its customers, in addition to the taste. Of course, the glycosylated flavors can also be tasted – and are therefore also of interest to the confectionery industry. A sweet which, as a surprise, has a completely different taste at its core – the possibilities are almost unlimited. For ready, semi-ready and convenience products, our “FLAVOR ON DEMAND” concept opens up completely new possibilities that are compatible, without any problems, with previous production methods.
Benefits of glycosylated flavors in food
Our technology is called “FLAVOR-ON-DEMAND”. All challenges in production and binding have been successfully resolved; unlike free flavors, 4GENE flavors are non-volatile, more chemically stable, more water-soluble and can be activated on a specified basis. The technology can be used for both natural and synthetically produced flavorings – the entire spectrum of small molecules can be covered in this way. The bio-technical process for the industrial production of the flavor glucosides enables them to be used commercially in a wide range of products in the food industry.
