Downers Grove, IL; April 5, 2013: Flavorchem Corporation, a leader in flavor and color product solutions for the food and beverage industries, recently announced their achievement of SQF Level 3, at their Downers Grove, Illinois facility. SQF (Safe Quality Food) is a leading, comprehensive global food safety and quality management certification system. As in prior levels, level 3 is a food safety program with the additional requirements of a quality plan, which extends the ideal of quality beyond product characteristics and commercial realization. This ensures product safety and quality tenets are followed throughout the developmental processes until a product reaches the market. Both of these additions are unique to this certification program. The certification process involves a rigorous two-part audit conducted by highly trained auditors that evaluate a company’s food safety and quality plans, prerequisite programs, sanitation, pest management, operational methods, maintenance, and personnel practices.
“It’s always been our guiding principle to produce safe, quality products for our customers along with superior services,” states Stacie Obman, Regulatory Manager at Flavorchem, “having achieved level 3 status by the Safe Quality Food Institute is another milestone in our continued commitment to quality.”
What once was exotic is now nostalgic. And what’s now exotic, well...it’s really exotic. Lemon-lime is just way too boring for candy flavors today. Expect to find blue honeysuckle berry (a cross between a blueberry and blackberry) and pawpaw (a mango and banana cross) flavors before you know it.
...“Demographics patterns have shifted and aging Baby Boomers have been replaced by a population willing to try non-traditional flavors,” says Ed McIntosh, marketing manager at Flavorchem. “They’ll try anything from mixtures like sweet and salty, to more regional flavors.”
Flavorchem is also following the trend of updating its global flavor offerings. McIntosh says that the brand has recently updated its Hispanic Flavors line to appeal to consumers in both the United States and Latin America. Horchata, guava and flan are just a few of the line’s latest offerings.

As the Hispanic population in the United States continues to grow, many third-generation Hispanics desire to experience traditional elements of their food culture…Food trucks and street vendors are a source of inspiration for Hispanic flavors and a way of exposing many consumers to flavors, according to Phil Sprovieri, vice-president of sales and market at Flavorchem Corp., Downers Grove, Ill.
The growth of the Hispanic population in the United States is driving the need for both traditional and innovative Hispanic flavors. These flavors have not typically been readily available on an industrial scale not only in the United States, but throughout the Americas.
Savory tastes promote flavor satisfaction,” explained Phil Sprovieri, vice-president of sales and marketing, Flavorchem Corp., Downers Grove, IL. “In other words, you don’t need that much salt when you have all that savory flavor up front.” Among the first products to take advantage of the substitution of savory for salty were flavored snack nuts and seeds.
Baked foods manufacturers continue to be challenged with removing gluten from their products because the protein gluten is found in all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina and spelt), rye, barley, and related grain hybrids such as triticale and kamut. In leavened products (either chemical or yeast raised), gluten combines with water to produce an elastic and porous web that traps gas bubbles released by action of a leavening agent. Gluten makes the dough or batter resilient and stretchy, contributing to the product’s airy texture
