The New, Natural Flavors and Fragrances
January 25, 2017
Hosted by Jim Lane
Most flavors and fragrances are made from petroleum, did you know that? The new technology wave is bringing forward a set of clean, natural alternatives made from waste materials and renewable sugars. In this episode, we'll be joined by longtime Flavors & Fragrances industry expert Scott Chaplin, industrial biotech expert Ron Cascone, and James Stephens, co-CEO of Blue Marble Biomaterials, one of the leading companies in this new innovative wave. What can you make, what is is made from — why is the natural option more sustainable, reliable, just as affordable and increasingly available? We'll look at sweeteners, fragrances, even Blue Marble's hit bacon flavor and smokehouse barbecue flavors, too!
