Ogawa & Co., Ltd. has developed a new natural flavor lineup Natural Stevia Optimizers, specifically for stevia-containing products. This lineup uses FDA GRAS approved natural flavor, is GMO-free and allergen-free, can be used in a variety of applications, and is available in liquid and powder forms.

Stevia has an unpleasant aftertaste and a slow sweet taste when compared with sugar. Adding Natural Stevia Optimizer cuts the unpleasant aftertaste of stevia, improves the sweet taste appearance, and enhances stevia's character of adding body. Using stevia and Natural Stevia Optimizer, products can have a sweet full body with a controlled rich flavor while maintaining the all-natural claim. The usage rate depends on the usage rate of stevia.

Salt Replacement Options
Ogawa & Co., Ltd. has developed a new natural flavor lineup called Salt Taste Improvers, which enhances salty taste and moderates potassium chloride’s unfavorable taste appearance. Potassium chloride has a metallic aftertaste, and the salty taste is weaker and slower than salt. Ogawa’s Salt Taste Improvers solve these problems to make the taste closer to the full salt taste. Salt Taste Improvers reduce salt by up to 50% when used in combination with potassium chloride. This lineup is GMO-free and allergen-free and is available in both liquid and powder forms.

Ogawa has also developed a lineup of salt replacers, which are combinations of salt, potassium chloride, and the Ogawa Salt Taste Improver, for easy and effective salt reduction. Ogawa’s salt reduction system allows formulators to create low sodium products while maintaining a full salt taste.
