Taste Modulation

Taste Modulation solutions for the food, beverage and nutrition market

Taste Modulation Solutions

Manufacturers in the food and beverage industry are under growing pressure to produce healthier products without compromising on taste.

Whether reducing some ingredients to improve nutritional labelling or adding others to boost the health profile of a product, these changes create unique and complex taste challenges.

Our taste modulation portfolio leverages a robust toolbox of characterising and modulating taste solutions to address these multi-dimensional taste challenges and deliver healthy products with the taste consumers love.



Manufacturers are under growing pressure to reduce the sugar content of their products. Our sweetness modulation portfolio helps deliver a reduced sugar recipe that doesn’t compromise on sweetness, mouthfeel, and overall flavour delivery.
