Maintaining Flavor While Changing Food Formulas To Save Money Is Tricky, But Doable

October 19, 2009: 02:05 AM EST
Formulating existing or new food products to save money can be tricky, especially when trying to maintain flavor and functionality. This Food Product Design article explores a range of ideas for finding ingredient combinations and flavor substitutions that save money. For example, use a honey flavor rather than expensive honey; use dairy flavors to replace expensive ingredients like milk powder, buttermilk powder or sour-cream powder. Starches and gums add mouthfeel and texture when costly ingredients have been reduced. Other tips: consolidate ingredients and build volume with suppliers to boost savings, and use custom blends for production efficiency.
