Natural Over Artificial Citrus Flavours – The Shift is Underway

Over the years, artificial food flavours including citrus flavours had taken the F&B industry by storm, offering wide range of taste to consumers. However, from a health perspective, as these flavours are considered to be associated with several side effects, a distinct move towards natural variants has been evident. In current scenario, the citrus flavours market is riding on the coattails of ‘health and wellness’ trend, further propelled by the demand for ‘convenience’. These factors have been attractive for market players focusing on natural sources of citrus flavors, while artificial flavour manufacturers are struggling to keep up with newer trends.

As consumers’ inquisitiveness about food ingredients and their sourcing is increasing, citrus flavours sourced from lemon, orange, lime, and grapefruit are gaining increasing momentum. These flavours have a connotation of healthy and natural, and continue to grow in popularity, especially in beverages.
