Symrise develops coffee and tea flavours for dairy applications
Symrise has recently launched a collection of specialty flavours designed to deliver the popular tastes of coffee and tea to dairy products including milkshakes, yogurts, ice cream, and more.
The global leader in flavorings, fragrances, functional ingredients and more developed the coffee and tea flavor collection to deliver fully indulgent, authentic tastes for dairy applications that expand beyond the known, and follow traditional flavors, and the trends for more unusual combinations.
“Consumers are looking for that premium experience in their food, which means pushing the boundaries on taste,” said Ian Thurston, senior category manager sweet at Symrise. “Our collection goes beyond what is expected in coffee and tea flavors, utilizing café favorites and unique tastes that pair perfectly with dairy indulgences.”
Flavors include hazelnut and amaretto, salted caramel, cold brew mocha, and hibiscus blossom chai latte in the coffee category; and matcha, chocolate, vanilla earl grey, and white peach for tea. Not only are these strong flavors meant to impart a pleasurable taste sensation, they also serve practical benefits, including masking any astringent or sour notes that are challenging for these dairy applications. The result is a collection of flavors that elevates dairy with the authentic taste of barista-brewed tea and coffee and opens the door to new, more indulgent applications for an eager consumer base.
