CHICAGO – Sethness Greenleaf Inc. has added two new profiles to its line of chocolate flavors. The semi-sweet chocolate chip profile features roasted chocolate notes and a chocolate candy bar taste. The dark chocolate flavor boasts a nutty, bitter-sweet profile with a cocoa powder taste.
“We’ve had strong demand for chocolate flavors since we started in the flavor business 130 years ago,” said Thomas Schufreider, vice-president of sales and marketing. “With the price of cocoa currently at record high levels, we’ve developed cocoa extenders that, when used to replace some of the cocoa in a formulation, mitigate the increased cost of the cocoa without affecting flavor.”
Beverage applications for the new chocolate profiles cross many categories, including dairy (milk cappuccino, yogurt and kefirs), coffee drinks, alcoholic beverages, functional beverages, bar/cocktail mixes, Italian soda syrups, syrups for milk, and many more.
Non-beverage applications include dessert sauces and toppings; bakery icings, glazes and fillings; bakery mixes, such as cakes, brownies, cookies and donuts; frozen desserts such as ice cream and ice cream mixes, gelato, mousse and frozen novelties.
