It is difficult to imagine how certain products would taste like without flavours added in their production. This applies to many food products, such as soft drinks, ice-cream or sweets. It is flavours that give such products their distinct aroma and mouthfeel properties. Additionally, the technological processes of mass food production often result in loss of flavour and mouthfeel. To compensate for this, products are enriched with supplementary flavours. Flavours can also be used as masking agents to cover any unwanted odours for instance in the pharmaceutical industry.
Carotex Flavours with over 25 years’ experience in this field, equipped with state of the art laboratories and possessing a team of experienced flavourists, enables you to satisfy the customer needs for latest flavour trends and to be in touch with regional taste preferences.

CAROTEX Flavours is one of the few companies in the world to use the unique encapsulation technology to manufacture its powdered flavours. Thanks to the special micro-capsule technology, the flavour is locked in before the product is spray dried, preventing any loss of the product’s aromatic properties. Our spray dried flavours can also come with natural colouring agents, such as the beta-carotene, cochineal or chlorophyll that dye the finished products.
CAROTEX Flavours manufactures a complete portfolio of food and beverage flavours. We are one of the few European companies with the know-how and experience to produce all of our flavours from highest quality single raw materials. On request we are able to create any required flavour composition.

CAROTEX Flavours specializes in top quality carotene preparations (beta-carotene, apo-carotenal, and other carotene mixes) with varying dyeing strengths as well as stable cloudy / turbid emulsions, which provide a natural look in beverages with low fruit content. Cloud emulsions when combined with other colours provide cloudy colours perfect for beverages lacking juice content. Carotex Flavours offers both liquid and powdered forms of food colours.



  • Non-alcoholic still and carbonated beverages
  • Alcoholic beverages

Oil-in-water emulsions are an all-in-one soft drink systems that provide the beverage with a desired taste, colour as well as a required level of cloudiness / turbidity. Many years of experience combined with continuous process of technological improvement enabled us to create products characterized by the highest level of quality, stability and taste. Our emulsions possess perfect cloudiness and have low dosage level (in most cases 1 gram of emulsion per 1 litre of the ready drink).
To satisfy the expectations of our customers our emulsions are available in a full range of flavours either naturally or artificially coloured. On request we are able to develop almost any colour and flavour mixture based on the provided beverage parameters.



  • Non-alcoholic beverages containing desired percentage of natural fruit juice in the ready product.

Our product line also includes fruit juice based compounds. On request, as in the case of emulsions, we are able to customize our compounds to the individual customer with reference to the flavour and colour composition along with required fruit juice content in the ready drink.
Application of our compounds facilitates creation of a beverage with sensory and visual characteristics resembling very closely that of natural fruit juice. Use of our compounds ensures a physically stable finished drink. CAROTEX Flavours offers both aseptic and preserved juice based compounds.
