Flavour Technologies

Bell´s tailor-made flavours and extracts are created by combining the most diverse of components: the creativity and technological expertise of our flavourists, the development of market-relevant and future-oriented applications and focus on lifestyle-driven consumer demands. Delivering solutions based on authenticity, naturalness (clean labelling) and indulgence, Bell´s portfolio of flavour technologies provides both, high functionality and excellent taste.

 

Focus on Functionality

  • Expertise in taste solutions
  • Target group centred flavour creation
  • Consumer health consciousness

 

Creating Values

  • Reducing CIU

Amongst others, we provide flavour solutions for the following technologies:

REDsugar: 
Functional taste solutions for sugar reduction

Sugar reduction is one of the central topics of the food and beverage industry. Political restrictions and consumers' increasing health awareness are demanding for reformulations – creating major challenges for manufacturers, as not only technical product properties are affected, but above all the perception of taste, mouthfeel and texture. As a valuable partner, Bell offers functional solutions to this problematic that are in line with consumers' clean labelling expectations.
