New Product Development Aroma Support

 How does this service work?

VAC can assist your team with aroma challenges and opportunities that are part of new product development. To ensure new products exhibit desired aroma character and intensity, we employ spot-on sensory assessment, extraction methods and scientific analysis. Sensory includes quantitative descriptive analysis to ensure the attributes measured match those desired. Extraction methods depend on the nature of the material. Dynamic headspace extraction works for many products however specialized techniques such as stir bar sorptive extraction and solid phase micro-extraction (SPME) also have a place. Scientific analysis may employ GC-MS, GC-MS_MS, GC-MS/O, or other methods appropriate to answer a specific question. All of these tools and techniques are uniquely packaged as appropriate to assist your company with the right approach for impacting aroma in your new product initiative exactly as your specification requires.
