Melons embody the taste of summer! Döhler has captured the taste of a range of melon varieties in a portfolio of especially natural-tasting flavours. No fruit is more refreshing and better at quenching thirst on hot summer days than melon. But it is not just as a fresh fruit that melons are the perfect accompaniment to sun-drenched days – their juicy, fruity taste notes are becoming increasingly popular in alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, wine beverages, soft drinks, ice creams and many other products too. It is no wonder that melon flavours are currently positioned right at the top of the trend barometer.
The fruit might look simple, but it has a very complex flavour profile. The taste of freshly harvested melons is made up of many hundreds of flavour components. The characteristically fresh nuances are particularly difficult to identify. Through intensive analysis of the fruit, Döhler has succeeded in authentically recreating the taste of a range of melon varieties in its portfolio of natural flavours. The range of flavours includes watermelon varieties such as sugar baby and crimson sweet, sugar melon varieties such as cantaloupe, yellow honey melon, galia melon and netted melon.
Summery concepts with watermelon and sugar melon
Melons have been popular thirst-quenchers for thousands of years. In arid areas of Africa, for example, watermelons in particular were considered a source of water for a long time. Today, the taste of melon gives the food and beverage industry a stimulus to innovation for summery product positionings. The product ideas range from aqua fruit and tea beverages, flavoured waters, lemonades and energy drinks to yoghurt and alcoholic beverages. When developing the flavours and product applications, Döhler’s main focus is always on multi-sensory product experiences, appealing harmoniously to all the senses.
