Application of flavouring materials in flavoured products
With four separate sections, the content in this module provides you with the background you’ll need to understand the practical application of flavours into different products, and their specific requirements.
Section one will look into the physical forms that flavours can take, where you’ll learn the advantage and disadvantages associated with each form, and how they can affect individual products. Section two focuses on the processing and composition of flavoured products, and how they can constrain individual flavours.
Section three allows for further examination into the key categories of flavoured products in the marketplace, and the complex factors involved in each one, as section four allows for further analysis into the testing of flavours in finished food.
In this practical unit, these flavour applications are clearly explained by module creator John Wright, a world class expert with a lifetime of experience in flavour creation. He's also the author of Flavor Creation, the acknowledged definitive book on the subject, which is included as part of this module.
