Senomyx, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNMX), a company using proprietary taste science technologies to discover novel flavor ingredients for the food, beverage, and ingredient supply industries, announced today that the Company's four initial Savory Flavors and its S2383 flavor ingredient have all received regulatory approval in the European Union (EU). Senomyx's four Savory Flavor ingredients may be used to create new savory flavor blends. S2383 is a flavor ingredient with modifying properties that restores the taste profile in products that have reduced amounts of sucralose, a high-intensity sweetener. Each of these ingredients was included in the newly published Union List, which identifies flavoring substances that will be considered legal for use in EU countries as of end-April 2013.
"The approval of Senomyx's Savory Flavors and S2383 in the European Union opens important new markets for these unique flavor ingredients," stated Kent Snyder, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "The Savory Flavors are very versatile and can be used in a variety of food products including sauces, frozen foods, cooking aids, soups, and snack foods. S2383 is applicable for use in all food and beverage products sweetened with sucralose."
The Savory Flavors and S2383 have been evaluated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). On October 2, 2012 the European Commission published a regulation that adopts the Union List and permits usage of the named flavoring substances in the EU beginning in late-April 2013.
