Custom mint oils are also available.

Spokesperson for Omega Ingredients Gavin Harris told FoodNavigator that the mint ingredients could be used in a wide range of applications, including dairy products, confectionery, snack foods and breakfast cereals.

Melanie Brown, co-owner of Lebermuth said in a statement: “We thoroughly test all of our incoming and outgoing raw materials to ensure our clients’ receive consistency and quality. We are excited to work with Omega Ingredients as they grow and develop their brand and product lines.”​
