Heterocyclics, pyrazines, and sulfur compounds are all crucial ingredients in the flavor and fragrance industries. Whether they make up the main notes in a flavor or a fragrance or they are used to round out the overall flavor or fragrance profile of a product, it is important that these types of ingredients are of the highest quality possible. Advanced Biotech places high emphasis on producing only the best heterocylics, pyrazines, and sulfur compounds, ensuring that every batch a flavorist or a perfumist uses for the production of their goods is of the same high quality as the last.
Heterocyclic compounds are generally found in smaller amounts in food and beverage products. They generally do not make up the main notes in a product, but serve to help boost the overall flavor of a product to increase its desirability to consumers. Heterocylics can add an incredible amount of complexity to a food or beverage product, regardless of what it is that is being created.
Pyrazines are increasingly being utilized in flavor production due to their existence in almost all types of food. Pyrazines represent an important area of the flavor industry because they are able to be produced through natural means, and as such can be utilized in many different natural food and beverage, natural cosmetics, and other types of applications.
Because of their ubiquitous nature, appearing in many different types of foods, an incredible range of pyrazine flavors are available. Pyrazines are generally used to add a flavor boost to a product rather than to create the overall flavor of a food product. However, some pyrazines are capable of being utilized for stronger and more prominent flavor notes in a food or beverage product.
Sulfur compounds are more important in the production of food and beverage flavors than many people realize. These flavor ingredients are used in order to add a more realistic quality to foods, and are often a major contributor to “off-flavors” in a variety of different food products. Sulfur compounds often produce flavors that are savory or meaty in nature. They may also be utilized in the creation of the brown or roasted flavors of food products, making sulfur compounds crucial in the creation of products such as sauces and condiments.
Sulfur compounds are also commonly used to give a more natural flavor to products such as frozen dinners and to products within the food service industry. They can be utilized to replicate a more natural cooking method, to replicate an existing flavor when food processing and cooking methods are changed, or to otherwise add more body and complexity to a food product. Sulfur compounds are also often utilized to create bases for foods.
The one thing that these three types of flavor ingredients have in common is that they are crucial in rounding out the flavors of food products and for giving them their complexity. Advanced Biotech produces a wide range of heterocyclics, pyrazines, and sulfur compounds for a wide range of uses.
