In this episode of SupplySide Stories we host Greg Griffin, director technical services, and Harvey Farber, VP flavor R & D, both with Brookside Flavors, and learn more about the flavor modulator. Product developers striving to create products that meet consumer demand for clean ingredients frequently have to overcome stubborn flavor notes. We discuss how the modulator works to enhance the taste and texture experience and how Brookside R & D partners with brands to make flavorful, clean label products a reality.
