LEWA’s solution for the challenging task of injecting flavoring agents in beer production:
There are three general types of flavorings used in the food and beverage industry:
|Natural flavoring agents||Flavoring agents obtained from plant or animal raw materials by microbiological or enzymatic processes. They can be either used in their natural state or processed for human consumption, but must not contain any nature-identical or artificial substances.|
|Nature-identical flavoring agents||Flavoring agents obtained from synthesis or isolation in chemical processes. These substances are chemically and organoleptically identical to flavorings naturally present in products intended for human consumption. They cannot contain any artificial flavoring substances.|
|Synthetic flavoring agents||Flavorings not present in natural products intended for human consumption, whether processed or not. These are typically produced by fractional distillation and additional chemical manipulation of naturally sourced chemicals. Although they are chemically different, the sensory characteristics are the same as natural flavors.|
