Tropical flavours rise again
Synergy, leading flavours and ingredients manufacturer, has launched a new range of passion fruit flavours to meet the rise in demand for more exotic tastes.
Available in five distinct taste profiles, the range offers manufacturers the flexibility to create new and exciting flavour combinations tailored to suit their needs.
Prompted by prominent sporting events such as the Brazil World Cup in 2014 and the upcoming Olympic Games in 2016, native Latin American flavours such as passion fruit have seen an increase in popularity with consumers embracing more global cuisines. This trend is reflected by the rise in tropical flavoured new product development which reached a 5 year high with 580 new launches in Europe in Q2 of 2014.
Available in a liquid and spray dry format, Synergy’s range of passion fruit flavours can be used in a wide variety of applications, from yoghurts and biscuits to sports nutrition drinks. The flavour range includes purple and yellow passion fruit varieties, which offer a diverse and unique taste experience. The breadth of flavours available comprise tropical, citrus, juicy and fruity taste profiles, allowing manufacturers to create distinct passion fruit flavoured products.
Chris Whiting, Category Executive at Synergy, comments: 'We are constantly monitoring and understanding consumer trends to develop creative and innovative solutions for our customers to stay ahead in the market. The new passion fruit flavour range is an example of this.'
'Working closely with our team in Brazil, the range has been developed to offer authenticity and versatility, so we can help our customers to innovate with this popular flavour across multiple categories including beverages, dairy, bakery and sports nutrition,' he added.
With an expansive portfolio of flavour solutions, Synergy offers deep application knowledge, cutting-edge sensory science and profiling and insight into future flavour trends to meet the needs of different applications and target markets.
