The year of purple brings us new flavours!


Last year, green was the must-have colour on our plates – now, it’s purple’s turn to take centre stage: The Pantone Institute has named “Ultra-violet” (18-3838) as its colour of the year!

This shade oozes hope and creativity and is all the rage in our food and on social media.

Until recently, purple fruits were very much under-represented in the food we eat, but now scientists are extolling their numerous benefits.

A number of products containing purple fruits have been launched this year (particularly in Europe), mainly involving biscuits, snacks and dairy products.

Whether it’s figs, blueberries, blackcurrants, grapes or blackberries, these super fruits are packed with flavour, and are a real treat for the taste buds!

Bakery, Pastry and Biscuit: let’s talk about vanilla!

It brings together different labelling options, including authentic solutions and more economical alternatives, both natural and tasty: this toolbox will provide you with solutions which will meet each criteria searched.

Because there is not one single vanilla taste, but dozens of possibilities, our range takes on different profiles: woody with an intense bean flavour, anisic with a fresh and subtle taste or even a subtly buttery vanilla…

This broad range is designed to hone your expectations and jointly develop your own specific vanilla hallmark, at the right price!

ACTI’BOOST Sweet, flavour solution dedicated to low-sugar beverages

At the FIE in Frankfurt, METAROM Group is intending to launch its new “High Performance” booster solution, ACTI’BOOST Sweet dedicated to low-sugar beverages.

Between 2010 and 2016, launches of “reduced/low/zero sugar” products grew by 100%. The beverage segment is the most committed to this approach (24% of launches on all products bearing such claims). Source: Mintel GNPD

Sugar plays an essential role in product flavour. Reducing the quantity of sugar without altering the flavouring profile of the product is therefore a real challenge.

The ACTI’BOOST Sweet range has been specifically designed to offset reduced sugar content of up to 30% in beverages.

Labelled “Natural Flavouring”, it adapts to the specific features of each matrix: carbonated beverages, drinks made with juices, lemonades, iced tea, etc. Its formulation is also resistant to pasteurisation.

This natural solution acts in synergy with the matrix. It boosts the sugar profile in the mix while enhancing the favouring profile of the beverage. These simultaneous actions strengthen the general sweet perception of the beverage.

Our range includes solutions suitable for dairy products and plant-based drinks.

ACTI’BOOST Sweet allows consumers to enjoy nutritionally beneficial beverages without compromising on taste.

Make the most of the FIE in Frankfurt to test our solutions on the METAROM Group stand, no. H9B61!

Summer drink trends: Natural & Fresh

A trendy drink, iced tea has been growing in popularity in recent years.

The connotation with “well-being” particularly appeals to women through natural and less sugary products. This year, tea is continuing to become popularised within the refreshing non-alcoholic drinks category, particularly among the flavoured waters. Following this trend, we are offering a vigorous black tea extract, with a subtle floral character and suitable for all kinds of drinks: iced tea, flavoured waters, syrups and even liqueurs.

Summer should be hot, with fruity and refreshing notes always at their best!

Citrus fruit, red fruit and berries (blueberry, raspberry) remain indispensable. Mint, which made its comeback with the famous Mojito is now returning with subtler touches to accompany other fruit such as peach or mango. Another star of the summer, adding flavour to Spritz is an international success. It goes particularly well with other fresh flavours such as green apple or, more unusually, cucumber, or even violet with its vintage pleasures.
