November 2, 2018

At SupplySide, Virginia Dare will offer samples of three product prototypes demonstrating its expertise in action: a functional cold-brew coffee shot and two flavors of vegan protein cookies.

At SupplySide West, Virginia Dare (Brooklyn, NY) will highlight innovative solutions for addressing off tastes in popular products like cold-brew coffee and plant-protein foods and beverages.

“As plant-based protein and clean energy drinks dominate the new product market, the ingredients of these products often contribute bitterness and off notes that create challenges for formulators,” the company explains in a press release. “As the experts in delivering consumer-preferred taste, Virginia Dare’s flavorists and food scientists provide individualized assistance and expertise for formulators looking to develop applications with challenging ingredients.”

At SupplySide, Virginia Dare will offer samples of three product prototypes demonstrating its expertise in action: a functional cold-brew coffee shot and two flavors of vegan protein cookies. The coffee shot features the company’s cold-brew concentrate and is fortified with natural, energy-providing ingredients. The cookies are gluten free and offer 12 g of plant-based protein and great taste thanks to the company’s natural masking flavors.

“These samples are just a few examples of Virginia Dare’s ability not just to align with consumer and industry trends but also to anticipate them,” added Philip Caputo, the company’s marketing and consumer insights manager, in the press release. “We’ve been formulating with cold-brew coffee, plant-based protein, and other exciting ingredients for years, and that means that we know how to do it right.”
