Food Flavours are ingredients taken into account to enhance or alter natural food products’ flavor to make it more desirable. Addition of flavours into food products that do not have desired flavours within them can improve their scent and taste significantly. Food Flavours are majorly available in liquid and powder form. In dry food products, such as dessert mixes, soups, and other powdered flavours are typically used. To convert liquid Food Flavours into powdered form, the most common technique used is microencapsulation, that involves spray-drying of flavor oil emulsion.
