Frutarom’s NutraT is a line of ready-to-use soluble powder formulas that dissolve easily in water, soft drinks and dairy products. Once dissolved, beverages stay clear, without turbidity, and deliver a fresh flavour.

These antioxidants offer water and soft drink manufacturers the ability to fortify their products with natural extracts that are typically not water-soluble, such as those from olives, artichokes, or citrus, enabling manufacturers to develop functional products with new flavours.

The antioxidants are produced using sustainable sources, heat stable up to 70 deg C, and both Kosher and Halal certified.

Doehler released its new Liquid Food & Beverage Enhancers, water enhancers that infuse various beverages such as tea, coffee, beer and even water with a unique taste.

The product includes calorie-free enhancers in a variety of flavours, more natural product variants based on fruit juice concentrates and enhancers that are more health-oriented. The enhancers are stored in PET bottles allowing consumers to carry their favourite flavours with them anywhere and everywhere. These bottles are also ‘squeezy’, enabling consumers to squeeze the content out in a quick and functional manner and create their own personalised beverages in an instant on-the-go.
