Commercialization Updates:Sweet Taste Program: Senomyx has three sweet flavor modifiers that have received regulatory approvals and are available for commercialization.
S6973 can be used to restore the desired taste profile of foods and selected beverages in which sucrose has been reduced. Products applicable for S6973 usage include virtually all food categories and selected beverages such as dairy beverages and ready-to-drink coffee and tea. Firmenich is conducting commercialization activities with S6973 in the Americas, Southeast Asia, Africa, and Australia. Market launches of retail products that incorporate S6973 have occurred in the U.S., Latin America, Asia, and South Africa. These products span a variety of categories including ready-to-drink and powdered beverages, dairy products, and baked goods. Products launched with S6973 are showing promising performance based on re-order patterns, and additional launches of products that utilize S6973 are expected during the year.
During the third quarter of 2012, S9632, a new sucrose modifier, was granted a Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) regulatory designation, which allows commercialization in the U.S. and other countries. Like the S6973 sucrose modifier, S9632 can be used to restore the desired taste profile of products in which sucrose has been reduced; however, S9632 is applicable for a broader range of non-alcoholic beverages that includes powdered and concentrated beverages, along with ready-to-drink and powdered forms of dairy, coffee and tea pr
