Spotlight on Flavor and Function

As consumer tastes evolve and become more sophisticated, botanical flavors answer with a one-two punch: They’re both complex in flavor and functional. Plants such as elderflower, hibiscus, wild fennel, turmeric, sage and moringa can coax complex flavors out of the right ingredient pairings, and they may offer a range of health benefits. And while most commonly utilized in beverages—think wholesome tinctures and teas as well as vibrant cocktails and botanical beers—floral notes are sprouting up in desserts and savory dishes, too. We’ll uncover ways to incorporate natural, herbaceous flavors into refined sauces, dressings, coatings and more.
