Visit HTBA booth #S3317 and delight the senses with a menu of tasting concepts that includes:
Berry Immunity Refresher – This refreshing berry-infused black tea contains Citrosa+, produced from baby citrus fruit sourced from the Mediterranean and Caribbean regions. Citrosa+ works in synergy with stevia and erythritol (high intensity and bulk sweeteners) to fine-tune the sweetness profile of this beverage. It lowers bitterness, enhances the flavor and helps to deliver a product consumers will try and repeat! Olews®, an ingredient derived from olive leaf extract, also provides added immunity and antioxidant benefits.
Natural Sugar-Free Energy Drink – This beverage meets consumer demand for healthier energy drinks that have a reduced amount of added sugars. Typically, low- to no-sugar sweetener options such as stevia in energy drinks generate many lingering off-notes and flavors, astringency and metallic tastes. Here, NF01 and NF02 natural taste modulation ingredients—sourced from grapefruit and apple, respectively—highly improve the flavor profile of this sugar-free energy drink, helping to deliver a better overall mouthfeel and taste experience.
Pea Protein Café Latte – This plant-based, high-protein café latte flavored RTD beverage appeals to consumers looking for alternative protein beverages to fit their lifestyle. In addition to their functional benefits, alternative proteins often bring a variety of aftertastes, astringency, bitterness, dryness and mouthfeel issues to formulations. In this delicious latte, NF01 and NF02 natural taste modulation ingredients help reduce astringency, improve and enhance mouthfeel, intensify sweetness, weaken bitterness and strengthen the desirable coffee notes.
Pear Elderflower Wellness Drink with ACV – With digestive benefits from apple cider vinegar (ACV) and botanicals like elderflower, this refreshing beverage touts the functional and “top-shelf” features that today’s consumers love. ACV has become increasingly popular with RTD beverages because of its probiotic benefits and as an alcohol alternative for today’s mocktails, but it can also add an overwhelming taste intensity. To the rescue: NF01 and NF02 natural taste modulation ingredients help mask ACV’s intense bitterness and off-flavors for a well-rounded taste experience.
Chocolate bite – Sweet and delicious chocolate square featuring natural taste modulation ingredient NF04 made from sweet orange to reduce bitterness and off-notes.
