At FIE 2013 in Frankfurt, the global producer of natural ingredients and ingredient systems will present a broad, integrated product portfolio that ranges from flavours, colours, speciality & performance ingredients, cereal ingredients, dairy ingredients, fruit & veggie ingredients all the way to ingredient systems. Visitors to Döhler's trade fair stand will have the opportunity to get to know the latest ingredients with a wide range of taste samples and to be inspired by innovative product ideas. Sustainable market success can only be achieved with products characterised by their outstanding sensory properties. To develop the perfect product experiences, Döhler provides its customers with all the tailored ingredients for success from one source, true to its corporate slogan “WE BRING IDEAS TO LIFE”.
Natural flavours, natural flavour extracts and innovative trend flavours
Markets, technologies and trends are subject to constant change. Döhler monitors and analyses taste preferences around the world and uses this information to develop tailored flavour ranges with regional focuses. Flavours such as honey, ginger, tea, mint and exotic fruits from all over the world are particularly trendy at the moment! From these, Döhler has developed a diverse flavour portfolio that opens up a world of innovation potential for nearly all food and beverage segments. A particular highlight at FIE will be flavours that capture the taste of Brazil and thus provide new product inspiration just in time for the football World Cup in Brazil.
Döhler will also be presenting its portfolio of premium FTNF/FTNJ flavours, flavour extracts, fractions, isolates and essential oils from its own flavour production facilities. Direct access to the fruit, immediate processing of the fruit after harvesting, the use of the valuable flavour substances from the fruits themselves and the exclusive use of physical and gentle concentration technologies make it possible to manufacture natural flavour extracts with particular purity, taste authenticity and standardised taste reproducibility.
Natural Colours. Bright colours, premium sensory properties and optimum stability in the finished product.
Never before has product variety been as great as today. This makes it that much more important that your product distinguishes itself from the variety of other products. In addition to the selection of colour, the naturalness of a product's ingredients is also becoming increasingly important. Döhler produces high-quality colouring concentrates and natural colour extracts thanks to its own fruit and vegetable processing facilities and worldwide sourcing. These form the basis for a comprehensive spectrum of bright and natural colours. Döhler will be presenting colouring concentrates and natural food colourings in standardised quality and top stability in the final product at FIE.
Speciality & Performance Ingredients. Technology as the basis for innovation.
Speciality & performance ingredients are technologically superior ingredient building blocks for food and beverage innovations with that ‘special something’. This includes one of Döhler's particular strengths – non-alcoholic and alcoholic fermented products from fruit juices, tea and malt for trend beverages such as cider, wine mixes and non-alcoholic soft drinks with extraordinary taste sensations. At FIE, Döhler will also be showcasing superior-tasting HIS and stevia-based sweetening systems in this product group, as well as texturisers and fabricated inclusions. Inclusions such as bubbles or juice-based fruit pieces are the ideal finishing touch for tea drinks, still drinks, smoothies or dairy products ‘with bite’.
Cereal & Malt Ingredients. For innovation in beverages and foods.
Cereals and malt are used in a wide variety of foods and increasingly in modern soft drinks, too. Döhler will be presenting a portfolio of premium cereal & malt ingredients for innovative nonalcoholic beverages at FIE. The Döhler product portfolio can also be used for sweetening, colouring and taste optimisation, as well as for improving the viscosity and structure of foods such as baked goods and confectionery, for example.
Fruit & Veggie Ingredients. More than just juice – tailor-made for every application!
Juices and purees from fruits and vegetables are the highest quality ingredients that nature has to offer. However, not every juice or puree is suitable for every product application. Different markets, applications, changing trends and laws present diverse and specific challenges. Döhler provides a broad product portfolio based on fruits and vegetables thanks to a global raw materials sourcing network and internal fruit and vegetable processing capacities, in conjunction with a thorough understanding of the market and many years of experience in the application of foods and beverages. The fruit and vegetable portfolio ranges from apples and pears, red fruits and berries, stone fruits and grapes, multifruit and vegetables to citrus fruits and a wide variety of exotic fruits. At FIE, Döhler will be presenting pure fruit juices, purees, puree concentrates, fruit juice concentrates, advanced juice concentrates, cells and pieces, as well as fruit concentrates and water-extracted juice concentrates.
Ingredient Systems. Consistent quality, greater flexibility and optimised production processes.
Döhler's all-in-one ingredient systems, such as blends, compounds, fruit preparations and emulsions, are customer-specific developments and provide a reliable and safe application and impressive advantages: standardised and consistent quality, guaranteed stability, reduced complexity, greater flexibility within production processes, simplified procurement, less waste, reduced effort in quality assurance and, last but not least, a reduction in working capital thanks to savings in storage.
