    Natural and organic

    Thanks to our expertise in natural and organic products we can offer a wide range of natural and certified organic flavours for all types of applications. Natural and organic flavours are more than just a trend and now occupy a leading place in our ranges and in our innovations.

    MOQ and Pack Sizes

    MOQ is 25 kilos, and orders can be processed from 25 kilos to multiple tonnes and are supplied in the relevant packaging based on volume and customer site requirements.

    Innovation

    In a proactive process, our sales, marketing and R&D teams work together on creative projects to develop ranges, anticipating or adapting to market trends.

    The R&D laboratories of Aromatech have developed a range of ‘value added flavours’ including two (Sensalt® / Sensugar®)  that are able to reproduce the taste of salt or sugar and meet our customers’ ‘clean label’ requirements.  By enhancing either salt or sugar notes already found in a finished product it enables approximately 25% of either salt or sugar to be substituted for its relevant alternative without compromising on taste.

    In order to develop a successful flavouring solution, flavourists and evaluation teams of the group studied and evaluated salt and sugar profiles and flavouring sequence. These were then reconstituted from strictly natural raw materials. It was important to consider all sensations delivered by salt or sugar during tasting, especially the big first impact, its mouthfeel, its enhancer power and all descriptors identified during the tasting.

    Sensalt® is a natural flavour containing no additive and no potassium chloride, often used in some salt enhancers. This avoids the metallic bottom notes and bitterness that can be found with some additives that must also be declared on labels (E508), which doesn’t suit current consumers’ expectations.

    Sensugar® is a natural flavour containing no additive and no Stevia found in some sugar replacers. This avoids the metallic bottom notes often found in reduced sugar food and beverages.

    Uren’s flavours are specially formulated for alcoholic and alcohol-free drinks, available in liquid, emulsion or soluble form and spray-dried or granulated powder (for instant beverages), according to application and manufacturing constraints.
