Calling all flavorists whether you are working with sweet or savory flavours. This presentation is for YOU!






SAAFFI – Calling all flavorists – this presentation is for you.

Adding heat to your product and Vanilla/Vanillin – the Global picture.
Wednesday 28th July 2021, 09h00 to 12h30




Sensory scientists have known for decades that chilli burn is something different from taste and smell – something more like pain. When you call a chilli pepper “hot”, that’s not just an analogy, rather your mouth really is being burned. That’s a sensation, not a smell or taste, and it passes to the brain through nerves that handle the sense of touch.

Vanilla flavouring is in our bakery, confectionery, ice cream and dairy products. It is sweetness personified. Bottles of vanilla flavouring are staples in flavour laboratories and pantries alike, and there is hardly a flavourist or home baker in the world who creates delicious, sweet products without the use of some form of vanilla.

This training, will take delegates on the journey to answer the two questions:

• What does the term sensory “heat” demand from the flavourist?
• Where does vanilla come from and how can it be used
