Flavor Masking Solutions

Food and beverage formulators face challenges when using functional ingredients such as pea protein, soy, vitamins, or minerals that can impart a bitter taste. Flavor modulators act as bitterness masking agents to ensure that products have a desirable flavor. Partnering with FlavorSum gives you access to flavor maskers, modulation tools, and applications experts to help you deliver delicious tastes in your final formulation.

Improve Taste with FMPs

If you’re developing reduced sugar products, you can improve the taste experience with FMPs. Flavors with modifying properties can tackle three major challenges associated with reduced sugar formulas:


Improve the onset of sweetness


Diminish the intensity of sweet taste


Reduce the sweetness linger

Sweetness optimization modulators can improve the mouthfeel of reduced sugar formulas.

For formulas with non-nutritive sweeteners, flavor maskers can address shortcomings by building back a taste similar to a sugar sweetened product.

So if you’re wondering how to mask pea protein taste or optimize sweetness, reach out to FlavorSum.
