Keeping pace with changing tastes

Consumers are demanding trusted and recognised ingredient declarations with less salt, sugar and fat.

The difficulty is in taking these elements out without changing the balance of the rest of the product. Any adjustment can alter the mouthfeel, texture, or sweetness of a product.

Kerry has the solutions to the full gambit of taste modulation challenges. Our taste modulation solutions have been designed to create foods that are naturally better. We seek to build goodness in, rather than strip undesirables out.

The result is a holistic understanding of how ingredients interact to produce better-for-you, and free-from products with tastes and textures that consumers love.

Recreating home-cooked goodness

Nobody understands reformulation like us. We call it ‘intelligent food design’, using natural flavours and processes to generate new products containing less unwanted ingredients but full of nutrition, meeting consumer demand in a uniquely focussed way.

We’re focused on bringing back home-cooked taste that includes the levels of nutrition which consumers today expect.

We stay ahead of the game through our investment in research and we bring that knowledge to our customers through partnerships that make sure they get the results they need at the right cost.

Products:
  • sweetness optimisation
  • salt optimisation
  • fat reduction
  • mouthfeel
  • masking
  • umami solutions
  • kokumi solutions

Partner with Kerry

We are ahead of the industry through our investment in research. We provide the fruits of that investment to our customers, through partnerships that allow you to create the products you want, with the elements you don't need.

It is common knowledge that consumers are demanding cleaner labels featuring less salt, sugar and fat. But when you take something out, everything changes. You might get the flavour right but how do you manage the change in mouthfeel, or any off-notes that emerge during the process?

Our taste modulation solutions allow you to create nutritionally optimised products without compromising on taste. Our heritage has given us a holistic understanding of food and drink that enables us to build back all the essential elements of food in ways that consumers enjoy – whether that’s sweet or savoury.
