Company: Comax Flavors
Ingredient Snapshot: Comax Flavors is excited to release the Classic Floral Collection, the first flavor collection created in the new Comax NJ Innovation center. Floral flavors are blooming and making their way into a variety of food and beverages. According to Technavio, the global floral flavors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 10 percent during the period 2018-2022. Driven by the health and wellness trend, consumers continue to seek flavors inspired by nature and Comax predicts floral flavors will be the next generation of better-for-you products. To meet the demand, Comax created the Classic Floral range in six fragrant flavors: Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Lavender, Lilac, Orange Blossom and Rose. These classic floral flavors add unique and subtle floral nuances to a variety of applications and work best when combined with other flavors such as berry, sweet dairy or savory profiles. “Comax is excited to offer our customers this delicate and refreshing collection,” Catherine Armstrong, vice president of corporate communications for Comax Flavors.
