International Featured Standards (IFS)

  • 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.

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 & 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.

  • Gold Coast manufactures Concentrated Flavors for Food Processing companies.

  • Flavor: A Product that gives TASTE or ENHANCES Flavor in an existing Product, other than Flavor Oils, Essences & Botanicals.

    It may contain water,Propylene Glycol; Alcohol.

  • Extract: A Flavor whose predominant Solvent is Alcohol.

  • Emulsion: A Flavor whose COMPONENTS have been ‘dispersed and encapsulated’ in either a Gum or Starch suspension.

  • W.O.N.F.: A Natural Flavor that has been enhanced ‘With Other Natural Flavors’.

  • Artificial: Denotes a Product whose COMPONENTS are derived from a synthetic process.

  • Natural and Artificial: A BLEND that combines both Natural and Synthetic  products by predominance.  Also ‘NATURAL & ARTIFICIAL’.

  • Natural: A Product in which ALL COMPONENTS come from Natural Sources.  Also W.O.N.F.

  • Spray Dried: A UNIFORM Encapsulated Flavor System, that offers extended shelf stability.

Natural W.O.N.F., 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.

Natural, Artificial  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  in determining your Flavoring Requirements.
