Flavorchem Corporation, an established leader in the manufacturing of flavor and color solutions, revealed its biggest takeaways from SupplySide West in Las Vegas, Nev., from October 15th – 19th, 2019. 

For its part, Flavorchem showcased its organic cold-brew coffee extract in a Honey Graham Cold Brew Coffee Protein Beverage. It featured a natural masking flavor and a natural vanilla enhancer in Spiced Apple Praline Pectin Jellies to address soaring vanilla prices. 

Flavorchem also addressed attendee questions about the recent regulatory changes on organic certified flavors.  

Looking across the wider show floor, Flavorchem experts spotted the following trends:

Better-for-You Products:  Clean-label, sugar reduction and plant-based ingredients were all at the forefront of this year’s show. Companies across the convention floor showcased innovative plant-based products and sugar alternatives capitalizing on the consumer’s desire for healthier options in their diets.

Adventurous Flavors:  Brands not only showcased bold and innovative flavors, but also texture for a heightened consumer sensory experience and enhanced indulgence. Several products featured North African, Mediterranean, Southeast Asian and South American flavors. 

CBD: CBD was a hot topic at the show. Exhibitors used the opportunity to educate attendees on the distinction between marijuana, hemp-derived CBD and hemp seeds. CBD oil extracts were shown across all food and beverage categories including confection, snacking, and dairy products.

Photo-Friendly Products: The healthy eating trend combined with vibrant, natural ingredients such as beetroot, matcha and turmeric has led to the emergence of products featuring innovative photo-friendly food and beverage products.
