Fresh and fruity yet sweet and full-flavoured at the same time – a taste profile popular among consumers of all ages, all over the world! That is why pineapple is one of the most popular flavours for fruity food and beverages.
However, what consumers expect from the taste of pineapple has evolved over the years. In the past, many consumers were chiefly familiar with this exotic fruit in its tinned form. Today, consumers have learned to appreciate the taste of this freshly-picked fruit: This is due to the fact that this fresh fruit is almost unlimited in supply and available at just about any time of the year, but also because of trips made to the pineapple's countries of origin. However, the typical taste of pineapple is derived from numerous fine flavour nuances, whose details have remained one of nature's secrets until today.
Döhler has now managed to crack the pineapple's “taste code”. Through the use of modern flavour technologies, Döhler's flavour experts have decoded the relevant flavour components and developed a unique range of pineapple flavours with an authentic taste.
The success story of the pineapple can be traced back to South America. Today, this popular fruit is also grown in Central America, South East Asia and Africa. The fruits can present very varied taste profiles depending on their origin, variety and harvest time. For instance, the popular “Smooth Cayenne” pineapple variety displays significant sensory differences depending on the country in which the fruit is grown. While the “Smooth Cayenne” cultivated in Thailand and the Philippines exhibits both sweet and sour taste components and is very fleshy, the same variety grown in Costa Rica is distinguished by its creamy, sweet nuances and hint of coconut.
The new pineapple flavour portfolio by Döhler covers the taste profiles of different varieties, growing areas and harvest times, as well as various nuances. With it, Döhler not only allows its customers in the food and beverage industry to introduce the fresh taste of pineapple to their product, but also enables them to give their product its own unique character through the use of various taste nuances.
