The newest addition to the Synergy Pure range of extracts and essences, the collection offers manufacturers a range of natural solutions for food and drink applications.
The Inspiring Fruits collection includes pear, sour cherry, peach, strawberry, raspberry, and blackcurrant. The company said there are multiple labeling options for manufacturers, including clean-label, being depictable on-pack, and natural named flavors, which meet the new standard for organic-suitable flavors as set by the EU under regulation 2018/248.
At its site in Trieste, Italy, Synergy’s process uses steam distillation to capture the aroma, or essence, of the raw material and preserve the taste of natural fruits. The essences are suitable for a range of products, including dairy products (yogurts and ice creams), beverages (juices, nectars, fruit waters, spirits, hard seltzers), and desserts, whilst the natural flavor options offer further flexibility for manufacturers.
Eric Zabiolle, general manager of Southern Europe, Synergy Flavours, said, “Manufacturers are innovating and catering to demand from consumers for more natural ingredients across food and beverage products. At Synergy, we use a blend of art, science and insight to capture and preserve the best of what nature has to offer, so that we can provide our customers with tailored solutions whilst keeping product labels as ‘clean’ and natural as possible.
“By developing these essences, natural named flavors, and depictable flavors, we’re able to provide a true-to-nature range that offers authenticity and flexibility to meet the demands of today's consumers. All of our solutions, including our wider Synergy Pure range, are easily tailored to meet specific taste challenges, and this is something we work on closely with our customers.”
