Flavourings are substances used to impart taste and/or smell to food. Food manufacturers have been using flavouring substances for many years in a wide variety of foods, from confectionery and soft drinks to cereals, cakes and yoghurts. The flavours category is a key segment of the global food and drinks ingredients industry. Global sales of flavourings are still concentrated in the developed markets of Europe and North America, however, as emerging markets begin to mature, sales are growing in places such as China and India, as consumers drive sales of processed foods in these countries.

What is a flavouring?
Sensory evaluation at best is difficult. To compare two food flavourings you need to apply them at their optimum dosage to an unflavoured base. You will also need to compare them using a taste panel.
