International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF) is developing a line of culinary herb flavors to respond to demand for fresh flavors, and a line of mushroom flavors to help manufacturers build a complete savory profile, according to Kevin McDermott, executive chef, North America.

Speaking to FoodNavigator-USA at the Research Chefs Association expo in San Antonio, Texas last week, McDermott said that food manufacturers are looking for fresher flavors, and IFF is looking to meet this demand with authentic culinary herb flavors. 

Food companies are also looking for more specific mushroom flavors, he said, and upcoming flavors include portobello, shitake, oyster mushrooms and morels. However, the mushroom flavor range has uses beyond mushroom flavor in itself, adding umami to finished products.
