"Chrysanthemum extract can add a new twist in hot and cold tea-type drinks," said Michael Conti, vice-president of natural products for Frutarom USA. He added the extracts offer compatible tastes in healthful offerings.

"When blended with other herbal ingredients, it helps in creating a truly refreshing beverage," Mr. Conti said. "It is also totally compatible with chamomile varieties, which are experiencing a strong comeback as a soothing aid to digestion."

Frutarom USA’s extract is a natural flavor extract derived from the yellow chrysanthemum flower through a proprietary process. The extract has a distinct taste profile with floral notes and hints of celery characteristics, according to Frutarom USA.
