Improve the taste of your food with our taste modulators!
Taste modulators have the potential to profoundly improve human health and help our environment. They are increasingly used to reduce the amount of unhealthy ingredients, such as sugar, and to promote healthy and environmentally friendly ingredients, such as whole grains and plant protein.
Despite the essentialness of taste modulation in food and beverage industry, most companies lack the research capability to develop their own taste modulators. At Ixora, we intend to fill the gap.
What makes us unique? We are an open innovation platform for the food and beverage industry creating next generation taste modulators. Based on our extensive know-how and decades of experience in taste modulation we can offer you tailor-made solutions for your specific needs. Our taste modulators will be 100% plant-based natural ingredients.
With decades of experience in the taste modulation field, the founders of Ixora gained in-depth knowledge to create proprietary taste modulators. They are also experts in taste receptor biology, who made many of the initial discoveries in human sweet, umami and bitter taste receptors.
By discovering proprietary natural taste modulators and vertical integration of R&D, manufacturing and commercialization, we aim at becoming the leading natural taste modulator company. Our goal is to become an open innovation platform for the food and beverage industry and ingredients manufacturers alike.
We would like to improve human health and help our environment by reducing unhealthy food Ingredients and promoting healthy and environmentally friendly food ingredients.
