“Taste for Performance”
Carbery Food Ingredients and Synergy Flavours will unveil “Taste for Performance”, a unique collaborative protein and flavour platform, at this year’s Health Ingredients Europe show. The collective knowledge and capabilities of both companies in high protein applications provide formulators with an unrivalled ability to develop nutritional bars, beverages, and powders that strike the perfect balance of taste and performance. Brought to life through a series of specially flavoured prototypes including a unique ready to drink beverage, visitors will have an opportunity to experience the exceptional flavour and nutrition impact that this platform makes possible.
The latest collaborative research undertaken with North Carolina State University, into the sensory analysis of various protein sources, has provided Carbery and Synergy experts with a deeper understanding of how proteins bind and interact with flavour compounds. These insights enable the development of superior flavour profiles in protein-based formulations. Protein and flavour experts will be on hand to explain how the characteristics of different protein sources behave in application and how flavour science is applied to achieve the best possible taste.
Carbery’s range of hydrolysed whey protein isolates and concentrates, Optipep, offers an exceptionally clean taste profile. The ability to overcome the problems of acute bitterness inherent in many other hydrolysed whey products, provides development teams with greater choice in flavouring high protein products with Optipep. As a superior quality protein, Optipep also provides a rich source of essential and branched chain amino acids and an optimised concentration of peptides. A next generation Optipep will be demonstrated in new applications at the show.
