They are reminiscent of a fresh summer breeze in Italy, lush hillsides in Spain or sun-drenched plantations in California! Döhler offers a range of ten new cold-pressed citrus oils which are especially authentic in taste, pure and of the highest quality. They are extracted directly from the peel, processed smoothly and bring freshness and taste to each application immediately. The oils are particularly suited to use in cloudy beverages and food. A clear essence from the oils can be used in clear beverages.
The Döhler “Centre of Excellence for Citrus” is located in Brazil, in the heart of the world’s largest citrus-growing region. This enables the company to process the fresh citrus raw materials directly after harvest, in order to obtain all the valuable and sensitive natural citrus extracts. The state-of-the-art production centre provides the entire DöhlerGroup with access to high-quality citrus fractions, flavour building blocks, concentrated citrus oils and other fruit products. Döhler América Latina supplies customers throughout the world. Today, tailor-made products – developed based on specific requirements from customers around the world – can be processed and supplied directly from the manufacturing facilities to the customer.
Döhler recently invested in new distillation columns to increase overall capacity and to broaden the product portfolio. The new distillation columns are multi-purpose devices and impressive in terms of size. They will also broaden the citrus portfolio.
100% purity & naturalness
With the help of the latest and most advanced technologies such as distillation, extraction and chromatography, Döhler uses 100% natural raw materials such as fruits, vegetables and other plant substances to produce FTNF/FTNJ flavours, extracts and flavour building blocks with a distinctively authentic taste. Using exclusively physical processes guarantees that no process aids or solvents can impair the clean, pure taste of nature, so that the term 'naturalness' can be used with absolute accuracy.
100% taste authenticity
The freshness of the raw materials is a crucial factor in producing premium flavours. As a vertically integrated company with eight production facilities worldwide, Döhler is represented everywhere the fruits are grown. This guarantees that the fruits are processed on the spot and the flavour-relevant raw materials are extracted directly. Citrus and exotic fruit specialities are processed at the Centre of Excellence in Brazil, while highly concentrated apple essences are produced at the Centre of Excellence in Poland. Döhler has also secured outstanding and reliable sources of raw materials for other fruits and plants, such as vanilla and cola nut.
100% standardised taste reproduction
The quality of fruits and other plants can vary widely from country to country and harvest to harvest – causing the content of relevant flavour substances to vary, too. Thanks to our access to a wide range of raw material qualities, we are able to balance out these harvest variations and to produce specialities with specified flavour values for you: consistent taste profiles with consistent quality at all times are the Döhler promise.
