Frequently Asked Questions
Q : What method should I use to evaluate the flavor sample ?
A : We recommend a level of use on a weight for weight basis of flavor to the ready to consume food product, e.g. 0.2% w/w means the addition of 0.2 gm of flavor to 100 gm of product. When using powdered flavors it is best to either pre-mix them with other dry ingredients or gradually add liquid to them, mixing well to form a smooth paste.
Q : How should I optimize the use of flavor in my product ?
A : After the initial tasting of our flavored product the chances are it will need some fine tuning. Too weak ? Add 1/4 level more, e.g. for 0.2% w/w, add an additional 0.05% w/w. Too strong ? Try 0.15% w/w. Talk to us about your results.
