Isobionics®, a brand of BASF Aroma Ingredients, is launching two new natural products on the flavour market. Isobionics® Natural alpha-Bisabolene 98 and Isobionics® Natural (-)-alpha-Bisabolol 99 are the latest additions to our Isobionics’ portfolio being proof points of our commitment to developing natural flavours driven by customer needs.
“We are delighted to introduce the two new products, which are natural flavours and produced with our cutting-edge fermentation technology. Therefore, they are independent from harvest conditions and pesticide free,” says Toine Janssen, CEO of Isobionics®. “This is a major milestone for us and for the flavour industry, as it is the first time that two natural flavours are being launched and marketed together. Building on our cutting-edge fermentation technology we can constantly expand our natural flavour portfolio beyond our well-established citrus products to address further customer and market demands.”
Breaking new ground beyond the citrus portfolio, Isobionics® is unlocking a world with new possibilities for food, beverage, and flavour enthusiasts and is proud to introduce the following two products:
- Isobionics® Natural (-)-alpha-Bisabolol is a known product, traditionally derived from natural sources and with a complex and captivating aroma profile. Renowned for its delicate floral notes, it offers a subtle hint of chamomile, along with hints of sweet, woody undertones, resulting in a truly unique flavour experience. This groundbreaking innovation allows culinary professionals and beverage creators to boost other flavours such as Vanillin and Nootkatone to add a distinctive twist to their creations.
- Isobionics® Natural alpha-Bisabolene 98 is a breakthrough in the flavour industry as its purity improves better flavour development. Moreover, with its creamy milky flavour, it makes a major contribution to the expansion of the Isobionics®‘ portfolio.
One of the most exciting aspects of the two new flavour ingredients is their great versatility. These flavour ingredients, produced at very high concentration via fermentation technology can be found not only in citrus essential oils, but also in several other natural oils, such as chamomile, ylang-ylang, black pepper, and basil oils. The very high quality of our natural flavours opens a world of possibilities for flavour enhancement in a variety of applications. Whether it is adding crispness to mild flavours, complexity to your beverages and confectionery formulations, or a savory punch to culinary creations, the new products offer limitless potential for creating memorable taste experiences. These natural products, use only renewable raw materials and they are produced via fermentation technology, which makes them independent from harvest conditions and seasonality and free from agricultural residues, thus ensuring a constant quality in your products.
Steffen Götz, Vice President of Aroma Ingredients at BASF, highlights the dedication to customer-centric innovation: “Isobionics’ new flavour solutions embody our ongoing commitment to providing sustainable and high-quality ingredients. These new product launches complement and expand the existing portfolio and answer the need for fermentation-based natural flavours. Dedication to providing natural and sustainable flavour solutions forms the core of our new product developments. Our biotech platform plays a significant role in developing future ingredients to deliver exceptional flavor profiles that are geared to consumer preferences.”
