Dairy Can Be a Mouthfeel Game-Changer

A consumer’s preference for a food or beverage product is linked to both its flavor and texture.  Taste expectations encompass a wide range of tactile sensations, from mouth-watering chips, burgers, and plant-based burgers to the creaminess of a latte. Taste continues to be the top purchase driver for consumers, and Mouthfeel is an integral part of their overall eating and drinking experience.

Edlong offers dairy and dairy-free flavors that are proven to amplify the perceived mouthfeel of food and beverage applications; in a recent third-party consumer study of people who sampled Edlong-flavored iced tea:


reported it tasted thicker


perceived it as being creamier

From low or sugar-free beverages, reduced fat or fat-free applications, to the traditional dairy foods in snack seasonings, and plant-based alternative dairy, Edlong’s extensive range of solutions deliver key mouthfeel benefits, including making beverages taste creamier, imparting an indulgent fatty perception to cheese and sour cream, and intensifying the perceived thickness in iced tea, zero calorie sodas, alcoholic beverages, and the like.

Authentic Dairy & Dairy-Free Solutions

The perceived mouthfeel of a food or beverage can make-or-break your product, and this perception can be affected by several elements. From texture and chemical feeling factors to even flavor and aroma compounds – it’s why our flavorists bring decades of mouthfeel expertise to your project, and a proven track record for solving tactile food and beverage challenges.
