Flavorings contribute to our enjoyment of food and beverages.
Depending on geographic location and tradition, they may be defined or
designated differently, yet for nearly 50 years IOFI has been committed
to ensuring the safety of flavoring ingredients globally.
Flavorings are added to foods to impart or modify their flavor
and taste. And a taste experience can help us recapture a childhood
memory, put us in a good mood or make our food and drinks much more
enjoyable. In today’s food and beverages, a flavoring is an ingredient
added in very small quantities that can have a major impact.
An industry like ours has a strong and vibrant heritage yet continues to explore new ways to meet consumer needs.
IOFI and its members engage with audiences around the globe,
helping them understand the ingenuity, scientific study and safety
evaluations that go into the industry’s products.
