Our expert flavor chemists understand the nuances of excipient functionality, taste modulation, flavor masking, and processing technologies, which enables them to eliminate off-notes that can detract from a product’s appeal. Through art and science, they go beyond single ingredients and create complex fusions to mask undesirable notes.
The process begins by analyzing a customer’s base formulation and performing a taste assessment of the matrix. Based on the knowledge of our sensory scientists, complementary flavors are tested and the formulation is balanced until optimal taste is achieved.
T. Hasegawa understands the importance of masking to optimize flavor. That’s why we keep up to date on how the industry is persistently changing, and are able to predict customer needs and stay in the forefront of modulation. We take advantage of the latest innovations to elevate taste perception characteristics and overcome the undesirable attributes caused by vitamins, minerals, and other ingredients.
