Synergy Flavors: Functional Flavors
Synergy Flavors applies flavor expertise to functional foods, drinks
Synergy Flavors will use its SupplySide West Booth #1451 to discuss the company’s new research, “Flavors of the Future,” which highlights new and inspirational flavors for the North American and Latin American sports nutrition markets.
The research yielded a hot list of emerging, growing, mainstream and established flavor trends that will dominate the sports nutrition market, along with expected flavor combinations utilizing Foodpairing® technology, which is based on using science to analyze and determine the compatibility between different ingredients.
“Flavors of the Future” is more than a list. The results of the research present a guide for sports nutrition companies that will strengthen their competitive positioning by ensuring they remain on trend with their products. As part of the research, Synergy Flavors identified new and upcoming ingredients that are being used by chefs in their restaurants and evaluated the applicability of those in sports nutrition.
Yuzu is a good example. The citrus fruit, which grows wild in central China and Tibet, is prevalent in a variety of cuisines and is now migrating to other product categories, such as spiked and sparkling beverages. It combines well with mint, apple and lemon flavors, which are ideal for sports nutrition applications.
In addition, some unique applications using Synergy Flavors flavor formulations will be featured at the booth, including:
* “Good Morning” high protein ice cream
* Synergy Pure® cold brew concentrate
* Dark chocolate ganache ribbon
* Tres leches vegan protein drink
* Flavors of the Future research
* Tropical turmeric granola
* Flavor-functional demo
* “How to Make Tropical Turmeric Granola” (demonstration)
* Limoncello crème
