Bell Hosts Gala Event in Chicago Showcasing Food Industry Trends and Live Cooking Competition

Bell Flavors & Fragrances Hosts Gala Event in Chicago Showcasing Food Industry Trends and Live Cooking Competition

 

Annual Spark Ignites Event Debuts 2024 Edition of Bell’s Spark Trends Platform and Chef Fusion Challenge to 200+ VIP Guests During Inspired Food Industry Event at The Hatchery

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – May 23, 2024 – The most talked about food industry event of the year is a wrap! Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) thanks more than 200+ invited guests from the food and beverage business for attending the 2024 edition of their Spark Ignites event on Friday, May 17, at The Hatchery in Chicago.

This year, the annual invite-only event not only showcased the latest consumer trends and flavor predictions from Bell’s Spark Trends platform, but also reinvigorated the company’s live, “Chopped-style” cooking competition, Chef Fusion Challenge, featuring four chef teams hailing from leading food industry brands.

“All the stars aligned for Spark Ignites 2024 with the Hatchery as the perfect location. We loved the opportunity to serve guests our unique flavor creations based on this year’s Spark Trends. And bringing back the Chef Fusion competition for the first time since 2019 in front of a live audience was the icing on the cake,” said Vice President of Marketing & Industry Affairs, Kelli Heinz.


Bringing Bell’s 2024 Spark Flavor Trends
to Life at The Hatchery

 

Known as the top incubator for startups in the Chicagoland food industry, The Hatchery provided the perfect backdrop for bringing trend predictions from Bell’s 2024 Spark Trends Program to life. The gala event greeted guests with a Spark showcase room, replete with opportunities to learn more about the current global Macro Trends identified by the trend platform as well as opportunities to experience (meaning taste) the company’s impactful flavor predictions.

“Every year, our Spark Trends Platforms identifies the food industry trends that are inspiring consumers across the globe. In the process, our Culinary Applications teams also explore regions and cuisines that will be having a strong impact on what’s coming to the table for years to come. With that said, it was a powerful experience to see these flavor explorations showcased as food and beverage demos right here at Spark Ignites 2024. At the end of the day, the proof is in the flavors, and our teams went above and beyond in giving our guests a taste to remember.” – David Banks, Senior Director of Marketing

For more information on Spark Ignites 2024, download the brochure here.

Attendees of Spark Ignites 2024 were given the opportunity to engage in tastings at five tables, each inspired by one of Bell’s five global consumer Macro Trends as part of their Spark–Ignites Creativity, Inspires Senses® Platform. Bell’s Culinary Applications teams across Savory, Sweet, and Beverage categories translated the company’s culinary trend predictions into inspired taste experiences, with highlights including:


Four Teams, One Winner –
The Chef Fusion Challenge Returns

 

Working in the Hatchery’s industry-size kitchen, in full view of Spark Ignites guests, the four chef teams were given one hour to whip up culinary creations based on Bell’s Spark Trends platform and using flavors as well as technologies from Bell’s Spark collection. Each team was tasked with creating three items; one beverage, one savory dish, and one sweet item while matching a common theme to win the grand prize.

“For the first time since 2019, Spark Ignites 2024 marked the return of Bell’s live cooking competition, the Chef Fusion Challenge. This year, the live event featured four chef teams representing the following top food industry brands: Blount Fine Foods, Reed Food Technology, Fuchs North America, and Griffith Foods. Attendees not only loved watching these culinary powerhouses heat up the kitchen, but also the opportunity to taste creative creations that brought our Spark Trends to life alongside those developed by our rockstar Bell team,” states Casey Schallert, Senior Corporate Chef.

Each of the four teams cooked up plenty of samples for all invited guests to taste and choose their favorites. An important step, because winners were chosen at the end of the cooking competition by all guests in live attendance via an online voting app. Aiding in the decision, a panel of seven hand-picked expert chefs – all certified members of The James Beard House and Research Chefs Association – provided color commentary and personal opinions as teams showcased their creations.

When the smoke cleared, the winner of the evening was Reed Food Technology. In a showcase that truly wowed all guests (and judges), the team brought to life a unique menu focused on Southern comforts with an unexpected twist. Dishes such as Donut Bread Pudding and Sweet Tea Brined Pulled Pork Wonton paired with Kool-Aid Pickle Margarita helped the team clinch first place. As a reward, each team member took home a premium KITCHENAID Pro 600 Stand Mixer.

In second place, the chef team from Fuchs North America cooked up three inspired menu items. Dishes such as The Deviled Egg and Matzo Ball Soup, paired with a Toasted Tea Spritzer helped the team clinch second place. As their prize, the chefs received an OONI Karu 12 Pizza Oven to ‘spark’ up their backyard cooking sessions.

Taking third place, the chef team from Griffith Foods brought their inspiration to the table via two versions of Windy City Ice Cream and Chi-takoyaki paired with “Not Malort.” This inspired showcase earned the team MARCATO Atlas 150 Pasta Machines for their Italian flavor explorations at home.

And last but not least, the team from Blount Fine Foods raised the bar by serving up Sweet Strawberry Entremet and Japanese Inspired Scallop Crudo, paired with a Sherbet Sunrise beverage. As a reward, each member took home a THERMOWORKS ONE Thermapen to keep their food temperature on point in the most heated kitchen moments.

Speaking of kitchen moments, Spark Ignites 2024 provided an unforgettable time for Bell’s guests to mingle and network with fellow food industry professionals.  The Bell team is taking home lots of inspiration from the night at The Hatchery and looks forward to serving its customers the flavors and technologies they need to delight consumers this year – and for years to come.

“This year’s event once again brought our Bell’s Spark Trends to life in a festive and inspiring atmosphere. Our Culinary Applications teams did a fantastic job in translating our Spark Macro Trends and Flavor Explorations into delicious dishes and beverages that really resonated with our guests. Plus, having the Chef Fusion Challenge back as a live event took this special evening over the top. A sincere thank you goes out to everyone who attended and made this event possible!” – Kelli Heinz, Vice President of Marketing & Industry Affairs

Bell Showcases Authentic Tastes Supporting the Industry’s Push for Clean Label Initiatives

Bell Flavors & Fragrances Showcases Authentic Tastes
Supporting the Industry’s Push for Clean Label Initiatives

 

Global Flavor & Fragrance Company’s USDA Kettle Crafted Meat Flavors Enhance Natural
Flavor Profiles and Streamline Ingredients Lists

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – November 30, 2023 – In response to rapidly growing interest in clean label claims, Bell introduces a new line of USDA Kettle Cooked Meat Flavors. These flavors, including Free Range Chicken, Grass-Fed Beef and Organic Turkey, enhance a product’s natural broth flavor profile while maintaining a cleaner label.

Developed at Bell’s Technology and Innovation Center, a USDA-certified facility located at the company’s global headquarter that unites diverse expertise under one roof and rapidly produces customized flavors with a clean label, USDA Kettle Cooked Meat Flavors fulfill both consumer expectations and manufacturer needs.

“Bell’s investment into this vertical, bolsters our capability to meet growing consumer demand for clear and simple labels, with flavoring food stuffs made from real meat,” states Peter Gollmer, Bell’s Director of Savory Business Development.

Consumer interest in foods and beverages that present a clean label is at an all-time high. In fact, 78% of U.S. shoppers will pay higher prices for clean label products (Food Navigator-USA, 2023). Today’s consumer expects full transparency on the ingredients incorporated into the products they purchase and demands comprehensive information on the impact of their choices from an environmental, social and health standpoint, with 64% willing to switch brands if a competitor offers more detailed product information (Food Navigator-USA, 2023). Simply put, they’re reaching for products that contain natural, minimally processed ingredients, are free from harmful ingredients and are ethically produced.

In line with consumer desires, Bell’s USDA Kettle Crafted Meat Flavors are made from organic ingredients, crafted in small batches, and cooked “low and slow” for an authentic flavor experience. In addition to being non-GMO and containing minimally processed flavor and color, they can be customized to fit a variety of culinary and application needs, such as soups and broths, seasoning blends, sauces and more.

To validate flavor efficacy and integrity, Bell’s Sensory & Consumer Science team has evaluated each flavor with trained panelists to understand the impact in corresponding broths. The verdict: All broth flavors maintained the shape of the broth profile while enhancing select flavor attributes.

Bell Flavors & Fragrances to Debut Alcohol-Inspired Flavor Menu at 2023- 2024 Regional IFT Roadshow

Bell Flavors & Fragrances to Debut Alcohol-Inspired Flavor Menu at 2023- 2024 Regional IFT Roadshow

 

Global Flavors and Fragrances Company Aims to Inspire the Science of Food Community with ‘Sippable’ Flavors for Food & Beverage Innovation

 

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – October 30, 2023 –

An annual tradition, Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (Bell) is hitting the road once again to exhibit at the Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) 2023-2024 Regional Section Suppliers’ Nights/Events. Spanning coast-to-coast across the United States, IFT’s Regional Sections encourage professionals steeped in the science of food to make strategic connections at a local level. These engaging events provide the opportunity for networking and education, while allowing suppliers to debut their latest products and services supporting the science of food community.

Bell recently wrapped up their 2022-2023 roadshow, having exhibited at the Minnesota Section IFT Annual Suppliers’ Expo (October 11) and the Longhorn Section IFT Suppliers Night & Food Industry Expo (October 12). During this time, the team debuted a menu featuring citrus flavors, showcasing concepts that delivered sweet-tart tastes from varietal and specialty citrus profiles to ignite tastebuds and broaden palates.

“The Bell team is gearing up for upcoming IFT Regional Section Suppliers’ Events, and we’re excited to debut our new menu, bursting with familiar yet treasured beer, wine, spirits and hops flavors. And, best of all? You can savor the flavor without the burn,” said Casey Schallert, Senior Corporate Chef at Bell Flavors & Fragrances.

Schallert notes, “We’re starting at homebase for the IFT organization and a city close to our global headquarters, Chicago, and will be making our way across the country, spanning Southern California to the Northeast. As consumers continue to prioritize their own health and wellness journeys, many are exploring sober-curious lifestyles. For our menu this year, we’re leaning into this concept while recognizing that alcohol flavors aren’t just reserved for beverages. We’re here to inspire our industry colleagues to take product development to the next level and explore the inclusion of these flavors in confections, snacks and sweet treats.”

Today’s consumer seeks alcoholic beverage options that fit their lifestyle and support mood enhancement and stress reduction, whether it’s a refreshing ready-to-drink seltzer or sippable, botanically infused mocktail. With 1 in 4 U.S. consumers looking for flavor blends in beverages and showing interest in new and unique taste profiles (Mintel, 2023), exotic, floral and tropical flavors are winning over tastebuds. However, tried and true classics, such as whiskey sours and rich red wines, will never go out of style.

Bell offers a wide variety of alcohol inspired and complementary flavors, ranging from full-bodied bourbon to delightfully sweet mango. Also, individual hop varietals and technologies that support an enjoyable sipping experience, such as alcohol boosters and smoothers. Alcohol flavors continue to be infused in a variety of applications that look beyond the glass, and their versatility. Their ability to be incorporated into familiar foods that consumers know and love is undeniably appealing.

Inspired by consumer trends and marketing insights, Bell will debut the following menu items featuring alcohol-based flavors at booth #105:

New York Sour Trail Mix
Featuring Bell’s Malbec Type, Bourbon and Lemon Lime Flavors

Bell Launches Citrus Campaign to Inspire Food, Beverage & Fragrance Marketplace Innovation

Bell Flavors & Fragrances Launches Citrus Campaign to Inspire Food, Beverage & Fragrance Marketplace Innovation

 

Citrus Fruits Provide Ripe Opportunity to Explore Flavors & Fragrances Beyond Iconic Tastes and Scents


NORTHBROOK, Illinois – September 21, 2023

Citrus, a beloved and refreshing fruit family, is prized by chefs and perfumers across the globe for its versatility, sweet-tart profile, and ability to elevate the food, beverage, and fragrance marketplace. And, consumers continue to lean into the squeeze! In the United States, 59% of consumers indicate that they like or love citrus and one-quarter (25.7%) of menus feature it (Datassential, 2023). With 56% of global consumers actively look for healthy ingredients in food and beverages (Euromonitor International, 2022), citrus flavors resonate particularly well among those looking to support their immune systems, boost vitamin C intake and elevate their mood.

Consumers are most familiar with orange-, lemon- and lime-based flavors and fragrances, which offer an approachable starting point for marketplace innovation. As they seek novel and sensorial experiences from products, they take interest in new citrus flavors and fragrances, but won’t follow through with a purchase unless they know it’s worth the spend. The industry can ease purchase decision stress and transition newer flavors and fragrances to mainstream palettes by pairing them with and relating to familiar, ‘hero’ elements that consumers know and trust.

“As consumers continue to seek out unique flavors and exotic fruits, our extensive line of citrus varietals offers a way for manufacturers to provide authentic taste experiences without the hassle or expense of sourcing these hard-to-find offerings. Our team of Flavorists and Perfumers have gone to extensive lengths to provide flavors and fragrances that take consumers on a journey around the world without leaving the comfort of their homes. We are excited to bring to life an international collection of rare citrus flavors that may never see the light of day due to their short shelf life or availability,” states David Banks, Senior Director of Marketing.

Citrus Flavor Solutions
While citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and limes continue to be go -to staples, consumers seek more niche and nuanced citrus flavor profiles and unique varietals from around the world to ignite their taste buds and broaden their palates. Bell offers iconic citrus flavors, such as Grapefruit, Mandarin Orange and Meyer Lemon in addition to specialty citrus flavors, like Buddha’s Hand and Peruvian Lime.

These flavors are available in a wide variety of formats and formulations (e.g., natural, organic) to meet product development needs and regulatory standards for a multitude of applications, ranging from baked sweet goods to ready-to-drink cocktails.

For more sweet-tart inspiration, view Bell’s featured citrus flavor list.

  • All Natural Blends: 100% natural fragrance creations – including bergamot, calamansi, kumquat and more

Top 5 Trends From Plant Based World Expo 2022

Bell Flavors & Fragrances captures a snapshot of what was trending on the show floor at Javits Center in September 2022.

 

From September 8-9, the latest trends in plant-based foods were on full display at Plant Based World Expo (PBW) 2022 inside Javits Center in New York City.

In its third edition, the official tradeshow for the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA) once again provided a unique platform for brands, manufacturers, distributors, as well as retail and foodservice professionals to experience what’s next in the world of alternative proteins.

The tremendous buzz surrounding plant-based foods was palpable inside Javits Center for two action-packed days. More than 245 exhibitors, including significantly more international brands, showcased their offerings in front of more than 3,700 attendees; up 20% from 2021.

Spotlight on Plant-Based Foods

Sweet, savory, functional, and gourmet: Walking the halls provided guests with a chance to taste and discover the latest iterations of plant-based foods and technologies.

Product presentations on the floor were supplemented by content-rich PBW platforms such as the Culinary Theater, Learning Garden, and Conference sessions. On that note, the number of sessions featuring experts and industry insiders more than doubled compared to last year!

Standouts included strategic assessments like “Understanding the Consumer Shift from Animal to Plant-Based” hosted by PBFA and Kroger, as well as the “The ‘Why’ Behind Today’s Food & Lifestyle Trends” by Eve Turow-Paul and “Learn How to Build Flavor Without Compromising Your Diet” by Chef Shenarri Freeman.

 Another PBW highlight returned this year: The winners of the official 2022 World Plant-Based Awards were announced during the show, chosen from over 140 entries in 17 categories from 20 countries.

Celebrating Vegan Deliciousness

Bell Flavor & Fragrances team at Plant Based World Expo 2022

Products from Bell clients featured center-stage in the sample dishes presented at the Bell Flavors & Fragrances booth (number 602). Under the theme Bell Taqueria, visitors had a chance to taste Vegan Al Pastor bites featuring alternative protein from MycoTechnology, Inc. seasoned with Bell’s pork and Mexican pepper flavors, accompanied by a delicious vegan chipotle and lime crema.

Continuing the deliciousness, Bell dished out Vegan Cookie Dough, based on chickpea protein and packed with vanilla and browned butter flavors. Rounding out the taqueria offering, Bell served non-dairy Horchata Iced Coffee using ethically sourced coffee from Westrock Coffee loaded with a vegan whipped topping by Ingredion enhanced by coconut milk flavor.

Overall, sampling was in full swing at the Bell Flavors & Fragrances booth during the entire show. Meanwhile, we also made time to walk the halls and explore the 5 Top Trends from Plant Based World Expo 2022 in New York City:

1.   Next Wave of Alternative Seafood

Vegan chicken bites and faux beef burger patties are already becoming ubiquitous on mainstream menus. Now alternative seafood proteins present the next wave in terms of product innovation. On that note: When it comes to making tuna, salmon, and shrimp alternatives taste like the ‘real thing’, Bell provides a number of vegan seafood flavors and technologies to make them pop.

At Plant Based World Expo (PBW) 2022, the innovation in #altseafood was undeniable: Ingredion sampled the latest iteration of their fish tacos, while several brands showcased versions of plant-based tuna salad. Virginia’s Plant Based Seafood Co. wowed visitors with their vegan Crab Cakes, while BeLeaf won the World Plant-Based Award for their plant-based shrimp.

The next level of innovation? Plant-based sushi and ‘raw’ fish! Finless Foods showcased a raw tuna alternative that can be used in poke bowls – without the negative effects of overfishing. The same goes for Current Foods and their delicious ‘raw tuna’. Great news, since worldwide tuna stocks have been depleted by 60 percent compared to 50 years ago.

2.   Humungous Fungus

Move over, soy and seitan! The market for mushroom-based protein is literally growing like mushrooms: From 2022 to 2029 the fungal protein market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% to reach $397.5 million.

Fungi were also sprouting at Plant Based World Expo (PBW) 2022. Mushrooms scooped a win in the World Plant-Based Awards, with The Mushroom Meat Co. taking the trophy for their pulled ‘pork’. Colorado-based MycoTechnology, Inc. harnesses the growth engine of mushrooms, known as mycelium, in their FermentIQ™ Protein. It’s made by taking pea protein or a pea and rice protein blend, then fermenting it with shiitake mushroom mycelium to create meat analogues like the chorizo taco served at their booth.

Hailing from South Korea, the Better Meat company impressed with their Plant-Based Luncheon (aka. vegan Spam) that uses mycoprotein to taste like the real thing. Mushroom flavors also popped off in Popadelics crunchy mushroom chips and in numerous condiments featuring luxe truffle aromas.

3.   Rooted in Culture

Bell's Vegan Al Pastor Bites: savory vegan pork sausage combined with Guajillo Chili, Chipotle and pineapple, stu ed into a crispy corn cup, topped with a delicate vegan avocado cilantro crema.

Vegan food is even more attractive when it’s founded on genuine cultural roots. And consumers love it: Two out of three U.S. consumers “love” to discover new flavors and cuisines. Meanwhile, 39 percent of consumers in the U.S. are trying to incorporate more vegan foods into their diets.

Including those vegan flavors gets much easier thanks to products like UK-based Shicken, which brings Pan-Asian delights such as curries and chicken kebabs into the meatless consumer sphere. After only 18 months in business, Shicken is already sold at Costco in the UK and created much buzz about a U.S. launch with their culturally rooted flavors at PBW.

Speaking of culture, Italy-based Mia Green Food delivered vegan versions of parmesan cheese, prosciutto, and pepperoni with zero animal ingredients and cholesterol, but all the authentic Italian flavor notes. Food connoisseurs also raved about Verduns’ veggie pate, while Swiss start-up Share delivered fermented apricot based on an ancient recipe from the Tang Dynasty for flavor and gut health.

4.   Peak Vegan Cheese?

While past editions of the show saw an explosion of chicken protein, walking the halls this year was impossible without seeing countless iterations of plant-based cheese. That’s no surprise: The global market for plant-based cheese was valued at $2.43 billion in 2021 with an expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% until 2030.

Scoring a win at PBW 2022, European innovators New Roots AG clinched the award for the ‘Circular Economy Approach’ behind their plant-based alternative to hard cheese. Hailing from Germany, Bedda showcased a variety of cheeses from brie to cheddar. Speaking of variety, Bell Flavors & Fragrances has developed a library of over 30 vegan cheese flavor profiles, replete with matching flavor enhancers and masking technologies to build deep aromas (see more info here).

Much to the delight of Italian food lovers (also see 3. Rooted in Culture), Miyoko’s Creamery returned to show ‘lifelike’ mozzarella both in solid form as well as a liquid for melting on pizza. In the show’s dedicated section for start-up companies, Plant Smart LLC delivered the world’s first fat free plant-based cheese, Cheezilla, alongside a melted cheese alternative named Melteeza. And for an adult take on a childhood staple, GrownAs* Foods served up Truffle Vegan Mac & Cheese.

5.   Sweet Delights

Bell's Vegan Chickpea Cookie Dough: Bell’s Vanilla, Brown Butter and Protein Masking Flavors turn this cookie dough into a healthy treat you feel good about eating, never knowing there are chickpeas in it!

Ending our trend report with a cherry on top, vegan desserts stole the show at PBW 2022. The manifold offerings of sweet delights in New York were indicative of a bigger trend: The global vegan dessert market is expected to reach $5.97 billion by 2027, while currently growing at double-digit rates.

In the plant-based desserts category, the World Plant-Based Award went to PLAYin CHOC for their ‘Organic Peruvian Cacao M•lk Chocolate’ with all that creaminess – but none of the dairy. Meanwhile, New York locals Rule Breaker Snacks bring nut-free and vegan brownies and blondies into school lunches, while Pri’s Puddings satisfy cravings on the go with pocket-sized pies. Not to forget Dandies vegan marshmallows by Chicago Vegan Foods, also known as makers of Temptation vegan frozen desserts.

Speaking of frozen, did we mention vegan ice cream? It’s now a full-fledged award category with SuperSeed Ice Creme by Eat Drink Innovate Pty taking the proverbial biscuit in the show awards this year. Lick ice cream made from Italian lupin beans also hit all the right flavors, while Bon Dévil’s Choc Ganache Desserts and Raw Cakes from Nats Rawline raised the bar for sinful delights with none of the (animal) cruelty.

3 Key Trends in the Booming Alternative Proteins Market

Alternative proteins hold the key to a sustainable future for the planet. At present, the market is growing at an unprecedented pace – alternative proteins are a $2.2 billion market worldwide, poised to increase at a CAGR of 9.5 percent from 2019-2025 (Mintel).

This level of growth is currently accelerated by global turmoil. Retail prices for meat and seafood are impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions from the war in Ukraine. The average price of ground beef has increased by 18 percent over 2021 (Bloomberg) and major suppliers expect price hikes for years to come.

The seafood supply is also impacted, especially the $27.5 billion annual U.S. sushi market. Wild Atlantic salmon is endangered in the U.S. and decades of overfishing have decimated global populations of species such as eel. Farmed seafood already accounts for 50 percent of the U.S. supply, but only a fraction is considered ‘sustainable’.

With these factors in mind, the alternative proteins market is only beginning to gain momentum. Read on to discover the three key trends affecting the market for meat, dairy, and seafood alternatives in 2022.

1.  Consumers: Veggie Curious

Long gone are the days of cheap meat. In response to price hikes and reports of food safety concerns in animal farming, a growing number of consumers are embracing vegetarian or vegan alternatives. As a result, the share of alternative meat proteins grew by 317 percent on restaurant menus over the past three years (Mintel).

According to current surveys, 1 in 5 consumers report trying to limit their meat intake. Among those consumers already eating alternative meat products, those looking to increase their intake of these foods increased by 49 percent compared to one year ago (Mintel).

2. Market: Real Money in ‘Fake’ Meat Products

American grocery stores have been offering alternative protein products for decades. Today, the number of SKUs and suppliers is at an all-time high: the alternative protein market is projected to reach $17.9 billion by 2025 (Mintel). Looking ahead, every tenth portion of meat, eggs, dairy, and seafood eaten around the globe will be made from alternative proteins by 2035 (BCG).

Plus, it’s no longer just veggie burgers and ‘fake’ chicken nuggets. The alternative milk market grew by 60 percent from 2015-2020 and currently accounts for almost 15 percent of the total dairy market (Mintel). Overall, the underlying change in consumer tastes not only benefits businesses, but also the planet. By 2035, the shift to plant-based eggs and meat is expected to save more than 1 gigaton of CO2 equivalent (BCG).

3. Flavor Profiles: Better than the Real Thing?

Consumers are more conscious than ever about vegan, cruelty-free alternatives to meat. From an industry perspective, this demand has driven tremendous research and development efforts in the creation of plant-, microorganism-, and animal-cell-based alternatives.

But there’s a catch: Despite the health (and environmental) benefits associated with alternative proteins, consumers are not ready to compromise on taste.

In a recent survey, 36 percent of consumers report avoiding plant-based yogurts due to poor taste and minimal flavor options (Mintel). In a separate study, 54 percent of U.S. consumers agreed that meat alternatives should closely mimic the taste of meat.

The good news is that companies such as Bell Flavors and Fragrances are supporting companies in the alternative proteins industry with decades of experience. We offer extensive technology platforms that not only match the ‘real thing’ but hold their own ground in terms of originality and deliciousness.

Our experts create specific flavor profiles that mask bitter and unwanted flavors, boost delicious umami notes, and enhance the overall mouthfeel of alternative vegan and vegetarian proteins. As more and more consumers are ready to explore animal-free food options, our flavorists are working overtime to create the kind of taste sensations that leave them hungry for more.
