Sensient Flavors' natural masking and modifying technologies can be the solution to your problems.

Let your true flavors shine through

Taste is king in the food and beverage world, but healthy options are just as important to consumers. Sensient’s masking and modifying technologies allows consumers to have their cake and eat it, too. Our technologies can enhance sweetness, mask off-notes or reduce sodium, providing consumers with the flavor experience that match our customers’ vision. As consumers continue to educate themselves on the ingredients of food and beverage products, more ingredients are becoming taboo, creating a challenge for developers in the lab. Sensient’s natural masking and modifying technologies can be the solution to your problems, by providing a high-quality taste experience with an ingredient label that is consumer-approved.

We help you cut calories without cutting flavor

All-Purpose Sweet Solutions™ (APSS), Sensient’s natural flavor solutions for sweetness enhancement with no added calories, help balance the flavor and sweetness profile in beverage, confectionery and dairy products, and they are especially suitable when reducing sugar content in recipes.

Our masks bring great flavor to functional products

Smoothenol® is a proprietary, natural flavor technology designed to mask the off-notes commonly associated with sweeteners, caffeine, vitamins, minerals and functional ingredients. Specially formulated to combat astringency, bitterness, metallic off-notes and palate burn across a diverse group of food and beverages, it can be customized to meet specific requirements for overall flavor profiles and end products.

We have healthy solutions for enhancing flavor
