North Bergen, New Jersey, August 23, 2007 – Michael Conti, Vice President Natural Products Business Manager, Frutarom USA Inc., announced the immediate availability of Solid Extract Vanilla Bourbon FR, a new ingredient that addresses the needs of customers who do not want vanilla products that contain alcohol, as well as those that are looking for a higher, concentrated version of standard Vanilla extract.
In making the announcement, Mr. Conti stated, “Our flavor development experts have taken into account that some customers want a vanilla product that does not contain alcohol, but offers high quality, authentic flavor and is compatible to a wide range of formulations. In looking to meet the needs for Halal certification as well as customers who use vanilla in both UHT and HTST pasteurization applications, Frutarom has developed an excellent vanilla product that exceeds expectations when it comes to taste and performance.”
Mr. Conti went on to explain that Solid Extract Vanilla is in a highly concentrated syrup form, also making it ideal for use in coffee outlets that sell specialty coffee selections. He added that Frutarom will assist customers in formulating their products with this new, breakthrough Solid Extract Vanilla.
“We’re always looking for ways to anticipate the requirements of customers with special needs. We encourage food and beverage manufacturers whose products are targeted to specific consumer groups or categories to come to us so that we can put our flavorists to work to accommodate them.”
