Kerry has introduced a new, expanded range of organic certified extracts and flavourings that are in compliance with the upcoming European Union regulations for organic flavour labelling.
The SimplyNature Organic range includes 24 flavourings, extracts, washes and distillates of orange, lemon, apple, raspberry, strawberry, mango, passionfruit, coffee, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla, to list a few of the major options currently on offer.
These new developments are in compliance with the incoming EU regulations regarding labelling of flavours used in organic foods and beverages.
The new regulation (EU 2018/848, scheduled for implementation January 1, 2022) is much more stringent in terms of what can be used in food and beverage products designated as “organic”.
“SimplyNature Organic was developed by leveraging Kerry’s ethical sourcing expertise through our global farmer network. Created using our superior extraction technology and world-class flavour design, this new range captures the excellent aroma and body of the authentic source, e.g., citrus, tropicals, berries, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, etc., while also providing a better finish than traditional processing,” said Davide Foà, Kerry’s Business Development Director, Taste, EU & Russia.
“Our latest portfolio of organic certified flavourings and extracts delivers benefits and impacts that are very close to conventional natural flavourings and extracts, with the important exception that they can be labelled as ‘Organic Certified’ — in full compliance with the incoming EU regulations.
“This enables organic product developers to use these flavourings and extracts without specific limitations, as part of the 95% of the organic product formulation delivering the organoleptic impact that consumers love, in a cost-effective manner.”
