Flavorings for Neutraceuticals
Without question, one of the strongest consumer trends to emerge within the last few years is the demand for natural, wholesome food and beverage products with transparent, clean labels.
With major efforts being made to evaluate ingredients, remove genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and artificial additives, and adjust product labels accordingly, you know that in addition to your clean label, you still need to deliver (and impress) on flavor.
Because flavor plays a crucial role in determining which products health-conscious consumers will buy, and continue to buy, food and beverage products must look to natural flavors to support a variety of lifestyles and - above all - deliver an enhance flavor profile.

Properties of Bickford’s Natural Food Flavorings
As one of the top flavor companies in the U.S., here’s what you can expect from our natural flavor concentrates:
- Highly heat stable
- Never suspend in alcohol, with the exception of Pure Vanilla, which contains 35% alcohol by volume
- Suspended in a water or oil base
- Free of additional salt and sugar
- Formulated to be stronger and more concentrated than other flavoring methods
While it is common for flavor manufacturers to suspend their flavors and extracts in alcohol, we have always suspend ours in either a water- or oil-soluble base. Why? Water and oil are neutral and more superior carriers to flavor than alcohol.
Our suspensions never add any additional flavor and do not evaporate or bake-out as rapidly when exposed to heat - as an alcohol-based extract does. The end result is a better tasting, better smelling flavor that maintains its character longer.
