Sensient launches line of chili-based extracts, Boundless

Sensient Flavors & Extracts launched Boundless, a multifaceted line of chili-based extracts that delivers consistent heat, color, and taste.

Sensient Flavors & Extracts (Hoffman Estates, IL) launched Boundless, a multifaceted line of chili-based extracts that delivers consistent heat, color, and taste. The line offers extended shelf life without diminishing consistency in flavor performance or taste.

“The Boundless chili extracts cover a wide range of chili profiles, from the expected pepper taste and aroma to more subtle, smoky, salty and even sweet notes,” said Kevin Barasa, extracts global product manager, in a press release. “Consumers overwhelmingly prefer a medium pepper experience, and these extracts are designed to bring just enough heat to make their presence known without overwhelming other flavors.”

The Boundless line of chilies consists of five chilies:

  • Ancho Chili: A chili that brings hints of coffee, anise, dried plum, and raisin with an undertone of wood. It works well in baked goods, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and dairy products.
  • Chipotle Chili: Dried red jalapenos are smoked to produce subtle tobacco and chocolate undertones.
  • Green Jalapeño: A crisp, vibrant vegetable flavor coupled with typical jalapeño heat.
  • Habañero Chili: A sweet and floral flavor with hints of fruity apricot, pear, and apple notes offers an alternative to the more traditional chili uses.
  • Red Jalapeño: Another chili with sweet, warm flavor notes to provide that burst of pepper taste to boost other ingredients.

In utilizing the Boundless line of chili extracts, variances in heat and taste are minimized, assuring year-over-year taste consistency.
