Focus on our TGEs (Taste Giving Extracts) client applications

Published On:
March 23, 2023

Taste Giving Extracts or TGEs are natural extracts that capture the complete aromatic profile of a botanical (volatile fraction + main fraction) through a combination of hydro distillation, hydro alcoholic extraction and concentration processes. These extracts, from completely internalised processing, come from noble materials and sourced in a controlled manner in order to restore all organoleptic qualities. Their main objective is to provide authentic taste to formulations.


Taste Giving Extracts




These botanical extracts have multiple advantages because they are:

  • Natural and as close as possible to the original botanical in terms of taste (their low processing level allows the organoleptic complexity of the raw material to be recovered with the olfactory signature of each botanical).
  • Formulated in liquid or powder form.
  • Adapted to many types de formulations.


Great potential


In addition to their aromatic aspects, TGEs add real value to the products in which they are integrated based on their superior quality and unlimited marketing potential.
By using TGEs in your formulations, you can take advantage of the naturalness or geographical origin of the raw materials from which these extracts are derived.

These attributes can be used as differentiating marketing points to:

  • Tell the story of your product based on its composition: traceability, terroir.
  • Design a universe rich in flavours: spicy, flowery, woody or bitter formulations.
  • Give free rein to your creative desires: pleasure and health aspects, economic cost compared to other solutions based on their concentration.
