The Sweet and Delicious Flavor of Honey

Honey has been used since ancient times to add extra flavor and sweetness to products. This natural product has been found in the tombs of pharaohs, and was a vital component for the ancient foods and beverages of many different cultures from around the world. It is therefore no surprise that honey remains one of the most common flavor ingredients in products of all types.



It is not an exaggeration to say that honey can be found virtually anywhere, and in virtually every branch of the flavor industry. Of course, the most common application for honey is in sweet treats such as candy, dessert items, and baked goods. The natural sweetness of honey has even led to its growth in an industry that is beginning to eschew sugar in favor of natural sweeteners. Honey is also a common component of many different beverages, especially those meant to be fresh and natural such as teas.


This particular ingredient is an important part of the meats industry, as it is commonly used to add extra flavor to sandwich meats such as honey ham and honey turkey. It is also a common component of many different types of marinades and sauces, especially those such as honey barbecue sauce and teriyaki blends.


Honey flavor also has a strong foothold in the cosmetics industry, where it is commonly used to add a sweet flavor to products such as lip balm and lipstick. Outside of the cosmetics industry, it is also a popular natural addition to medicines such as cough syrup, where the light and sweet flavor of honey can make a medicinal product much more palatable to many consumers.


Whether a flavorist chooses to use Advanced Biotech’s Natural Honey Reaction, Natural Honey Distillate, Natural Methyl Phenyl Acetate, or Natural Trans 2 Octenal, there are plenty of options to choose from when searching for the right honey flavor ingredient.
