Craft Apple Cider Proves to be a Brewing Hit
Craft beer is one of the hottest items in the culinary world at the moment, but other craft brewed items – and especially craft apple cider – are also making a significant showing in the flavor market. Craft apple cider contains its natural sweet apple flavor, of course, but the use of the right flavor ingredients in the right amounts can lead to the creation of delicious and distinctive apple cider products. Some products simply seek to enhance the natural flavors of the apples, while other products seek to mask the flavor of the cider altogether in order to create distinctive new flavors. Either way, there are a host of flavor options for those who are seeking to do something a little bit different with flavor creation.
Of the various fruit flavors, strawberry is among the most common in the creation of these types of products. Strawberry can be recreated naturally in these products through the use of components such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Strawberry Furanone. Other similar fruit flavors that may be utilized in the production of apple cider flavors are cherry (from Natural Anisyl Acetate), as well as grape, pear, and even citrus and tropical flavors such as pineapple and orange.
However, it is not only fruit flavors that are common in the creation of these types of products. Notes of ginger can provide an even tastier, refreshing bite to an apple cider product, while flavor ingredients such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Cinnamic Acid for cinnamon flavor are typical where apple is concerned. Even more experimental floral notes can be used for high-end, experimental variants. Regardless of what a flavorist is going for, they can benefit strongly by using all natural flavor ingredients to create their products. This is especially true of any craft-brewed product, beer and cider both included.
