Liquid, viscous or dry - from flavours to organic certified extracts

Various flavours and extracts in liquid, viscous or dry form meet both the individual market needs and the technical requirements of your market sector.

As naturalness is becoming more and more important for consumers, we have expanded our portfolio to include a variety of bio-certified flavours that comply with the current regulation.

Support a more conscious diet with our flavours!

The demand for fat, sugar or salt-reduced products in the food market is increasing.

With our SymLife® flavours, we support you in developing your products in line with the market needs in a consumer-friendly way. Masking flavours as well as solutions for completing a rounded profile play an important role.

In particular, off-flavours can be balanced, missing saltiness or sweetness can be compensated and an improvement of the mouthfeel can be achieved.

We optimise the Nutri-Score of your products

Consumers increasingly look for Nutri-Score on product packaging as part of their decision making process.

With our flavours and wider portfolio, you can optimise the taste of your products and even improve the Nutri-Score if required. 


This Regulation lays down rules on flavourings and food ingredients with flavouring properties for use in and on foods with a view to ensuring the effective functioning of the internal market while providing a high level of protection of human health and a high level of protection of consumers, including the protection of consumers‘ interests and fair practices in food trade, taking due account of the protection of the environment.
