Flavors Hold Great Potential

According to World Data Atlas, France has the highest per capita consumption of cheese after Denmark, Iceland, and Finland. Thus, manufacturers, such as Kerry Group and Flavorchem Corp., among others, are offering dairy flavors to meet the consumers’ everlasting demand for cheese. In savory products, like cheese, biscuits, bagels, and sourdough premixes, citric acid is used, which is a strong-tasting acid. Thus, flavor manufacturers like Corbion are offering flavors that can be used as alternatives for citric acid.
