A great-tasting beverage is your ultimate competitive advantage. Great taste is what we do. We can take just about any nutrition drink, energy drink, protein drink or sports hydration beverage and make it taste good. We specialize in formulating with alternative natural sweeteners such as stevia, without the usual stevia aftertaste.
The first step in beverage development is usually to decide on the "active" ingredients. Electrolytes for hydration? Fiber and cleansing herbs in a detox drink? Natural caffeine in an energy beverage? If your beverage has vitamins, we know how much overage (extra amounts) to add to give it a longer shelf life.
Our flavor chemists will first balance the taste of the beverage (sweetness, sourness, bitterness, saltiness and umami). When it is appropriate for your drink, they will give it the flavor profile that you want. We have a large library of natural aromas for you to choose from.
Part of our beverage development process is to establish the shelf life of your product. We can sometimes set it based on tests that we have done in the past. Otherwise we take it through an accelerated stability test. Four weeks in our accelerated stability chamber equals one year of normal shelf life.
The FDA usually requires that a beverage has a Process Authority letter—a validation by a specialized laboratory (Process Authority) of the production process that we plan to use to make your beverage. We then have to file this Process Authority letter with the FDA. We provide this service at no extra charge for our customers.
