Powders or Liquid?

Here is a debate that may never have an end but does provide some specific points. Certainly each of us may have a personal preference as to which is easier or better. However, in some applications there are definitely some advantages or disadvantages. For dry mix manufacturing, powders certainly provide easy scaling, low water content and general disbursement by dry blending. In non dry mixes, oil or water based liquids can provide easy disbursement and easy volume measuring. To some, liquid is favorable, considering that most flavor components begin in liquid form. 

Concentrated or Non Concentrated Flavors?

First let's briefly understand what is meant by concentrated - that which is considered many times stronger than an average strength product. (Note: other than pure vanilla extract and pure oils there are no government specifications regulating how a company may determine or evaluate a strength or level of concentration.)  For example, a gallon of ten fold vanilla will flavor as much product as ten gallons of single fold vanilla. A gallon of eighteen fold vanilla equals eighteen gallons of single fold vanilla in flavoring potential. 

What is Value?

Value means much more than a low price and it should be more than just getting what you pay for. Our company is dedicated to value. Value should include an unfailing quality at a competitive price with performance when and where you need it most. A product priced cheaper does not always mean better value. Sometimes a few cents more per batch can yield a superior finished product resulting in greater customer satisfaction. Never the less, always examine the quality, the performance and the true end price which is determined by your usage level. 

Natural WONF an Alternative

With Other Natural Flavors, W.O.N.F.'s can be a method of obtaining the best value in natural flavors. Direct concentrates of some of the more delicate or subtle flavors like Blueberry, Strawberry or Raspberry can get quite expensive and require special handling. W.O.N.F.'s on the other hand allow you to obtain a naturally stronger flavor without the use of artificial enhancers, providing you with the luxury of "ALL NATURAL" in flavoring your product. 

Artificial, Natural or Natural and Artificial

In addition to the desired result you want in your product, your product specifications and labeling may also play a part of determining your flavoring requirements. Other variables include: direct cost, the strength or subtlety noticed in the finished product, heat stability, etc. This may seem complicated, but skilled professionals working together can simplify this process. GOLD COAST Ingredients, Inc. is dedicated to providing you with the exact flavor you need for your product.
