There is a reason why it is called “the spice of life”! Herbs and spices give our meals that special something and thus enrich our lives. Spices from far-off lands have always been among the world's most valuable goods. Although herbs and spices are found in every kitchen today, they still offer plenty of scope for new, attractive taste creations and lots of potential for innovations in the food and beverage industry.
The days when traditional lemonades were the only place to find a subtle hint of herbs are over. Herb and spice notes are becoming increasingly popular in every segment of the food and beverage industry and top the list of trendy flavours. There are no limits on the creative options! The spectrum of products ranges from prosecco with the taste of strawberry and basil to soft drinks with a fine rosemary note.
Spice up your product, too! We have captured the taste of herbs and spices for you in a unique portfolio of natural extracts. Thanks to the use of selected fresh herbs and spices, the extracts are characterised by particularly intense, fine and authentic taste notes.
Whether cardamom from the Himalayas, oregano from Italy or coriander from Morocco, herbs and spices transport us to far-away worlds of taste. Selecting the right raw materials is of crucial importance if we are to bring these sensory experiences into your products. However tasty they may be when fresh, not every type of herb and spice is suitable for producing authentic, natural extracts.
That is why Döhler has identified the very best raw materials for our products. Using gentle, state-of-the-art extraction technologies, we can capture the original taste from these raw materials for you.
It is not only their unique taste notes that make herbs and spices so popular among consumers. Many types are also said to have positive or even healing effects – they apparently revive, refresh, renew and rejuvenate. Herb and spice extracts therefore not only give food and beverages special taste notes, but also unlock a wide range of attractive product positionings. As a supplier of integrated solutions, we provide you with both premium quality natural extracts and a host of innovative product concepts.
We are committed to developing the perfect flavour for your product! But creating the flavour is not the only thing that counts. A lot goes into developing a flavour tailored to your requirements: the very best raw materials, knowledge of your consumers' taste preferences, experience of the technological requirements of a wide range of applications, well-founded expertise and our flavourists' excellent nose for good taste. We therefore rely on the following when creating a multi-sensory taste sensation:
