In recent years, there has been a strong upsurge in the demand for natural products, including natural flavors. This has created a number of opportunities for biocatalysis (use of enzymes) and fermentation to compete with traditional synthetic chemistry for the production of flavors.
Biotech flavors could replace some natural flavors, being manufactured within a controlled environment and at a lower cost. They can also replace some Nature Identical flavors, and justify a natural label.
To succeed in the biotech flavor market a flavor supplier should control the entire production chain, from raw materials to product protection. Therefore he should also manage the fermentation process to obtain a good yield of the targeted molecule, and he must know the customers trends and the flavors in fashion.
