  • Water Garden: Applications using Synergy Flavors’ Synergy Pure line of products, such as fruit- and floral-flavored protein, sparkling and still waters, and a twist on the traditional coffee bar.
  • Botanical Garden: Beautifully crafted artisan chocolates and a royal wedding-inspired cake incorporating decadent floral and botanical flavors.
  • Arboretum: Earth-inspired flavor-functional snacks and beverages.
  • Community Garden: A Garden of Eatin’, with sweet treats that put fruit and vegetable flavors front and center.
“At IFT18, Synergy Flavors will capture the sights, sounds and flavors of Chicago’s most iconic gardens, with foods and beverages that offer local, authentic, and clean flavors, as well as functional benefits,” said Parveen Werner, director of marketing at Synergy Flavors. “Our flavorists and applications technologists have worked to capture the tastes of the city, focusing on a ‘farm to fork’ approach that puts people in touch with nature as part of their dining experiences. This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate how our Synergy Pure products are distinguished by their freshly picked flavor components, using naturally sourced, plant-based ingredients that provide optimal sensory performance in a variety of applications.”
In addition, Synergy Flavors has launched its TRU (Transparent, Responsible, Unblemished) Stories, a destination for learning about developing clean-label flavors with nothing to hide, using ethically sourced ingredients to deliver a true-to-nature experience.
