The introduction of sugar taxes in an increasing number of countries, as well as consumers wanting to look for beverage alternatives that retain taste but reduce calories, have led to many new product developments. According to a study by market researchers at Innova, 31 percent of U.S. consumers have increased purchases of flavored water. Strawberry, apple, cherry or passion fruit and iced tea are classic flavors of choice - but with as little added sugar as possible. Brenntag can be your partner to deliver clever formulations that meet all the required specifications.

Time for adventures

When it comes to beverages, consumers are known to be open for experiments. We see a huge potential in mixtures, especially of fermented drinks such as kombucha with cold-pressed juices. Creative flavor innovations, limited editions and seasonal launches are very popular and offer a wide choice. Mixtures can establish exotic flavors at the market, seasonal products and limited editions for special occasions such as holidays or events offer the opportunity to try out extraordinary formulations.

Soft drinks or alcoholic beverages, energy drinks or coffee: Large parts of the population long for healthier, and clean label versions for many products.
