Celanese talks about taste and Qorus sweetener system at IFT

By Celanese Corp.

Celanese Corp., Dallas, Texas, a global technology and specialty materials company, shared valuable “consumer taste insights” with beverage manufacturers during the IFT 14 Annual Meeting and Food Expo in New Orleans in June.

“Celanese conducted an extensive global market research study on the ‘attitudes of consumers’ toward low and no-calorie beverages – and one thing was clear – they will not compromise on taste,” said Christoph Katz, marketing director for the food ingredients business of Celanese. “The top two reasons consumers cited for not consuming low/no calorie beverages surrounded taste – either preferring the taste of full calorie versions or disliking the taste of the low/no calorie versions.”

In response to these common consumer taste preferences, Celanese designed the Qorus sweetener system. “Qorus balances sweetness and flavor to enable the formulator to attain the ‘authentic’ taste of their brand,” said Katz. “Qorus significantly reduces the bitter aftertaste of traditional non-nutritive sweeteners, increases the sweetness perception, and results in shortening the lingering profile of the sweet aftertaste.”

Qorus may be used in a variety of low/no calorie beverages including carbonated beverages, non-carbonated drinks, flavored waters, energy drinks, juice-based drinks, cocktails and dairy products.

To showcase Qorus, Celanese offered tastings of a low calorie juice-based drink, a protein beverage and an energy drink during the IFT show. Attendees were invited to take the Qorus challenge and determine which sample is full calorie and which is low calorie, and will then be entered into a daily drawing for gift cards.

Celanese also highlighted their Sunett brand of acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) sweetener and their preservatives in the form of potassium sorbates and sorbic acid. “Celanese offers time-tested sweetener and preservative products that are manufactured at the highest-quality western standards to give our customers piece of mind,” said Katz.
