Global Flavor Carriers Market: Overview
Flavor carriers are naturally or artificially derived solvents for extracts and flavors. Flavor carriers are used by food technologists and flavor consultants to enhance sweetness, shelf life, and texture of food and beverages. These provide solubility to flavoring compounds.

Flavor carriers can be used as a heat stabilizers in food and beverages products. Main sources of flavor carriers are acacia gum and modified starch.
Acacia gum is extracted from natural resources, especially plants, and modified starch is prepared by treating native starch enzymatically, physically, or chemically. These properties allow technological consultant to conserve the flavor balance among active chemicals in a preparation to ensure a fresh, authentic sensory experience. The maximum use of flavor carriers is in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
