Plant Protein Maskers

Highly nutritious and consumer desired, plant proteins offer unique taste challenges. For example, while certain flavors work well with soy, others tend to magnify the beany off-flavor that’s hard to ignore. Our creativity and experience allow us to develop custom-masking approaches to each unique plant protein and their unique taste challenge.

Acid Blocker

Bitterness can come from a variety of sources including storage, processing, naturally occurring compounds and ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, botanicals, preservatives, caffeine and more. That’s why Innova developed Acid Blocker, a proprietary technology that masks the acid bite or bitter taste and gives you more flexibility to tailor flavor delivery.

MSG Replacer

Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of the
naturally occurring amino acid, glutamic acid. It is used as a food additive and is commonly marketed as a flavor enhancer. In situations where the presence of MSG is not desired but the “umami” effect it brings is, Innova offers alternative solutions that provide comparable enhancement, mouthfeel, and umami meeting your label needs.
