Cargill Introduces New Flavor Technology

Cargill, an international provider of food, agricultural and risk management products and services, has developed a new flavor technology called Freshzone.

According to the company, Freshzone technology is currently formulated for powdered applications, making flavors taste fresher and more natural, and ensuring the shelf life of the flavor components in products such as powdered drinks and gelatins.

This flavor technology gives food and beverage manufacturers convenient, nonflammable dried powders that are safer than flammable liquid alternatives, the company added.

David Kroll, marketing manager of Cargill Flavor Systems, said: "Consumers' desire for a consistent flavor experience led us to develop this patent-pending technology. This is one of several Cargill flavor platforms that help our customers create fresh, great-tasting consumer products."
