Tools to tackle any taste challenge

To generate tastes that consumers love we maintain industry-leading expertise in several areas.

Taste balancing

Consumers increasingly desire healthier lifestyles. They crave less sweetness, fewer calories and low to non-alcoholic beverages that never compromise on taste or experience.

Sugar reduction in beverages impacts the overall taste profile, sweet taste dynamic and mouthfeel. Through symlife™, our taste-balancing solution, we have developed proprietary methods to increase the pleasure consumers get from sugar-reduced products.

inspiring citrusTM

Consumers no longer need to travel the world to discover new cuisines and drink creations.

Globally, citrus is the most common taste direction and one of the most popular ingredients for beverages. Apart from lemon or orange, citrus has other tonalities that are not yet common across the globe. Yuzu, Calamansi or Thai lime are just some of what nature and Symrise have to offer.

Vanilla is one of the most powerful ingredients in sweets and dairy. You will find it nearly everywhere, but in beverages its impact is particularly huge.
