Join the AROXATM development team.

Members of our customer loyalty scheme can use their Discovery points to access materials from our development programme. These flavours have been evaluated for safety, tested in a range of products, and encapsulated for stability. The amount provided in each capsule generates a moderate flavour intensity (approximately 3 on a 0 - 10 scale) when added to 1 litre of water. We recommend that you experiment with the weight or volume of product to which you add them to find the right concentration for your application.

We will give you access to an on-line form to provide us with feedback on the suitability of each flavour you choose to test. You can use this to suggest descriptors for these materials in different product types. We'll use this information to develop products which are better targeted to specific industry needs.

For each and every flavour you provide feedback on we'll refund your points, allowing you to receive as many sets of Discovery standards as you like for you and your taste panel - free of charge.
