Zest to Express
Treatt plc has launched CitreattTM Expressed Key Lime 4164, the latest addition to the Citreatt range of natural FTNF (from the named food) concentrated and terpeneless citrus oils. The fresh, authentic notes of Citreatt Expressed Key Lime 4164 enable perfumers and flavorists to capture the true character of key limes. Derived from the peel oil of key limes, Citreatt Expressed Key Lime provides a fruity, tangy lime flavor while retaining some of the creamy, juicy accents of the fresh fruit. The enhanced solubility of Citreatt Expressed Key Lime means it is particularly suitable for essence and beverage manufacture. Produced using a low-temperature, solvent-extraction technique, Citreatt citrus oils retain the volatile and non-volatile flavor components which may be lost during concentration by traditional methods. The result is a product with a rounder, smoother flavor profile. Other products in the range include orange, lemon, grapefruit, distilled key lime plus expressed lime, available in various concentrations.

DHA in Yogurt
Spanish company Priégola has launched Simbi + Omega-3 yogurt with Martek DHA. Now available in major supermarket chains throughout Spain, the yogurt is being marketed to children and adults for its brain health benefits. Martek DHA is an all-natural vegetarian source of docosahexaenoic acid, the key omega-3 fatty acid for brain development and function. Studies show that people of all ages may benefit from an adequate supply of DHA in the diet. Natural food sources of DHA are limited primarily to fatty fish, making it difficult for many people to get enough DHA in their diets.
