Artiste Flavor Essence (d.b.a. Artiste), the service-oriented, entrepreneurial flavor and fragrance specialty ingredient company, has announced that it has added Organic Bergamot Oil to its line of fine Italian citrus oils. This product, processed by Cilione Antonino S.r.l., Italy, and also available in bergaptene and furocoumarin free versions, is certified by Suolo e Salute S.r.l., an accredited certification agent approved by the USDA’s National Organic Program.
