Bitter Blockers

Metarom USA helps create the best tastes, and it goes without saying that those efforts include minimizing bitterness. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have bitter ingredients! We offer solutions with bitter blockers that can help you keep your base recipe without having to subject your customers to the bitterness no one needs in their life. Our bitterness masking agents are powerful ways to level up flavor profiles. Learn more about our bitter blocker ingredients and effects below.

Block the Bitter with Metarom’s Help

A blocker might sound negative, but really it has a positive effect, almost like magic: preserving the good while removing the bad. Metarom offers specialized masking agents to reduce the impact of bitter, metallic, and astringent notes. Like other masking agents, bitter blockers cover the bad taste of ingredients without minimizing their benefits for health and nutrition.

This non-comprehensive list represents just a few of the ingredients that have some associated bitterness that our bitterness masking agents have proved effective against:

  • Caffeine
  • Amino acids
  • Beta alanine
  • Creatine
  • L-theanine
  • Herbal extracts
  • Stevia

Even if you aren’t sure if any of the above ingredients apply to your flavor profile or if you have a bitter taste from another source, don’t hesitate to reach out. Metarom USA can create a custom blend of bitter blocker ingredients. Learn more about these functional flavors to see what Metarom USA can do.
