Flavours, flavoured fruit compounds and extracts for the food and pharmaceutical industry.
L'Italiana Aromi specializes in the production of a large range of flavourings, extracts and distillates for the food industry.
A “must” of L’Italiana Aromi’s policy is product quality and continuous innovation. As a matter of fact, the production has been diversified for a few years now. As well as the solid beverage, confectionery, bakery and dairy sectors, the new savoury and nutraceutical segments have now been added. For the Sweet Application sector L’Italiana Aromi produces fruit flavourings, creamy and mellow flavourings such as hazelnut, chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, cream and toffee, butter flavours, spray-dried fruit juices, flavoured fruit juice blends, coffee, cocoa, liquorice, vanilla extracts and functional extracts.
The production department is equipped with distillers, extractors and with vacuum deterpenation plants and concentrators working at low temperature and therefore able to preserve heat–sensitive products. Two spray-dryers for powder products with a total 1,500-kg daily output. A PLC managed blending station for fruit-based, flavoured mixes and compounds with a daily production of over 50 tons and a complete unit dedicated to the production of brewed tea infusions.
Other important production equipment are two sophisticated robot plants, located in the production unit and in the application laboratory. They operate 24 h a day weighing the recipes prepared by the flavourists. Both are managed by a software connected with the company ERP system, so absolute secrecy of the formulation is guaranteed. The bigger robot is used for the automated production of concentrated flavourings that translates into always fresh and high quality products. The smaller one is used for the weighing of new flavour recipes thus allowing the flavourists to dedicate themselves entirely to the development work.
