What do you do at Sensient? I am a Flavor Chemist on the Sweet & Beverage team. My job is to make flavors and extracts that go into food and beverages, everything from ice cream to alcohol to health bars.
What does clean mean to you? Clean is so complicated and it seems everyone has their own definition! Basically, “clean” stands for products without unnecessary ingredients and go through minimal processing (cruelty-free, non-GMO, Vegan, eco-friendly processing & packaging, etc.). I have extremely sensitive skin, and for years would closely read ingredient labels for personal care products. But I recently switched over to “clean” products. As a huge animal lover, zero animal testing is an absolute must for me.
How do you deliver on clean promise? Most our customers request natural flavors and extracts, so all the chemicals and materials we use in the flavor development are sourced straight from nature.
What are tomorrow’s challenges you are looking to solve today? Faced with yearly crop shortages due to inclement weather, insect infestation or natural disasters, we’re trying to re-engineer fruits and vegetables to match the original plant. Another big challenge is using flavor to mask off-notes in our customers’ products.
