Valencene is an ingredient widely used in F&F. With the taste and aroma of oranges valencene drives consumer preference in food and beverage, personal care and household products. Found in small amounts in the peel of oranges it is responsible for their characteristic aroma. Similarly, Nootkatone is an F&F ingredient that occurs in grapefruit and is responsible for its characteristic aroma. Until now, the use of valued ingredients, valencene and nootkatone, has been limited by high cost, limited supply and inconsistent product quality. By brewing these flavours from sugar, rather than extracting it from the fruits, allows for scaling-up in a sustainable and affordable manner.
