Sweet flavours sourced from superfruits dominate Sensient Flavours’ 2011 Flavour Trend Predictions – and provide food and beverage manufacturers opportunities for innovation with up-and-coming flavours inspired from multiple macro trends such as health and wellness, sensory and personalisation.

The 2011 flavour trends include:
