Importance of Food Essence in Baking

Food essences are the important elements that add a new fragrance, depth and aroma to the baked creation. Your clients will judge the baked creation with their first sensory perception i.e. smell and the right food essence will add a great flavour to your creation.

Why do we need Food Essence?

The flavour of the food is perceived with the help of three key senses – smell, taste and presentation. The food essence is a pocket friendly option to enhance the flavour of your baked creation. The importance of the food essence can be understood with the help of the following points:

  • It adds a good taste and aroma to the baked dish
  • Food essences are bake stable and thus, the aroma and the texture of the dish is retained even if the dish is baked at high temperatures.

Popular Varieties of Food Essences

If you dive deep into the flavouring market, you would find myriad of food essences available at your disposal. However, the following are the notable and popular food flavours in India.
