Natural Sweet Flavor Enhancer
Many products are formulated with high-intensity sweeteners due to serving-size limitations or to meet demands for a reduced caloric content. Of the high-intensity sweeteners available many create undesired bitter or metallic aftertastes and do not replicate the sweetness profile of natural sugar. They vary in taste and usually only provide an initial sweetness that quickly dissipates from the flavor of the product. Invetek’s natural Sweet Flavor Enhancer is effective in solving the taste problems encountered with various sweeteners.

Masked or Eliminated
Effectively masks a wide variety of unpleasant tastes – bitter, astringent, sour, acidic, metallic and medicinal tastes often found in vitamins, proteins, baking related ingredients, botanical extracts, active pharmaceutical ingredients, high-intensity artificial sweeteners, stevia, as well as tastes found in cosmetic lip products.
Intensified and Extended Sweetness
Intensifies and rounds out the sweetness profile of any primary sweetener or highintensity sweetener used in chewing gums, confections, chewable tablets, lozenges, dairy products, beverages, and cosmetics. When used with other ingredients containing natural or artificial sugar substitutes, Natural Sweet Flavor Enhancer extends the sweetness profile uniformly. The resulting more intense sweetness profile can be optimized to reduce the amount of primary sweetener used, resulting in sweetener cost savings.
Enhanced Flavor Profiles and Improved Mouthfeel
Improves taste perception with intensified flavor strength and duration, especially in chewing gums, chewable tablets, and lozenges.
Widely used in low-calorie, and low-fat applications, Natural Sweet Flavor Enhancer enhances the sweet taste of sugar and characteristic taste of other flavors often diminished when formulated to a “light” version of a product.
