OlbrichtArom has added masking functions to its functional flavours line. With the DairyEnhancer and SugarBooster, the company offers solutions for manufacturers developing food products with added benefits.

Eating habits are changing. People want their diet to have less negative impact on the environment and a more positive effect on their health and well-being. Increasingly, dairy products, plant-based alternatives, drinks, sports nutrition, and snacks are meeting this growing demand. But one decisive criterion remains: flavour.

Functional flavours such as DairyEnhancer, Masking Systems, and SugarBooster from OlbrichtArom play a key role in compensating for flavour distortions caused by functional additives such as sweeteners, acids, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and fats. They mask undesirable offnotes, improve the overall flavour, and reduce bitterness or metallic aftertaste. In this way, they fulfil the needs of a wide range of consumers who value enjoyment, health, and environmental awareness.

Flavour enhancement and cost efficiency

OlbrichtArom’s DairyEnhancer improves the flavour of dairy products and enables cost savings by reducing expensive recipe ingredients without compromising on taste or mouthfeel. The flavour enhances the creamy, fatty taste in dairy products such as milk, cream, yogurt, quark, and similar products. It also masks sour notes, and can be used in low-fat products to give them a flavour and mouthfeel similar to that of products with a higher fat content. In addition, DairyEnhancer masks unpleasant off-flavours in, for example, vegetable fats or nutrient-rich applications with proteins, vitamins, or minerals.
