Treatt USA launched a range of TreattZest citrus oils that confer an authentic, fresh, zesty profile, the company says. These concentrated products have enhancedTreatt orange solubility and offer low cost of use in an array of finished product applications, it adds. TreattZest oils are produced using selective extraction methods, which separate compounds based on their relative solubility. The equipment used ensures short contact time between phases, resulting in efficient extraction, it notes. Because of the enhanced selectivity and high concentration, TreattZests are economical to use, with a recommended starting dose ranging from 2 to 10 parts per milligram. As natural From The Named Food (FTNF) distillates, the TreattZest range has low terpene levels with enhanced solubility compared with folded oils produced by conventional distillation methods, the company says. This distillation process results in concentrated products that retain their volatile flavors. Ideal for both alcohol and non-alcohol beverage applications, TreattZests are particularly suited for clear beverages, as their enhanced selectivity means they don’t show any cloudiness. The range also can be used to give a strong, fruity aroma to flavored beer, spirits and waters, where a cloudy appearance is particularly undesirable to consumers. The TreattZest range currently encompasses a number of citrus oils, including Expressed Lime Oil Tahiti, Lemon Sicilian Cold Pressed, Lime Distilled, Lemon Essence, Orange Cold Pressed, Lemon Juicy and Lemon Cold Pressed.
