Smoke flavourings

General information

Since time immemorial, smoke from hardwoods has been used to enhance the taste and shelf life of food, be it meat or fish. Today, when millions of people demand this enjoyment, the use of hardwoods alone would make production more expensive and place an enormous burden on the environment. This is where smoke flavourings come in. They offer all the advantages of smoke without its undesirable side effects.

Properties & advantages

Within smoke flavours there is a multitude of products with different smoke flavour profiles and different colour intensities. The products are manufactured on the basis of beech wood.
Individual solutions are possible (phenol content, colouring, acid content, defoamer).
  • Typical beech wood aromas - no change in consumer habits
  • Constant smoking results at the customer's site due to easily adjustable manufacturing process
  • Economical processes through the use of concentrated products
