Nut flavors without allergens make food, beverages more inclusive

Do you or someone you love have a serious food allergy? Even mild food allergies may cause considerable discomfort in consumers, from itchy throat or watery eyes to skin rashes and irritations. Since 2000, both the incidence and prevalence of food allergies have significantly increased in the United States. Tree nut and peanut allergies are common, with approximately 2.2% of children allergic to peanuts (Lieberman et al., 2018). As the rate of tree nut and peanut allergies rises, food and beverage companies have shifted to creating safer and more inclusive products. Nut flavors without allergens are a key ingredient in these products.

Blue Pacific Flavors has always taken food allergies very seriously, and we continue to adjust our flavor formulas to offer the safest options for consumers. Our nut flavors without allergens help products taste and smell just like nut-based products, enabling allergic and sensitive consumers to experience the food and beverages they love with reduced risk of allergic reaction.


What is a nut flavor without allergens?

A nut flavor without allergens is made from natural flavor compounds found in the original food, but does not contain the compounds responsible for the food allergy. Many of these allergy-provoking compounds are proteins that are specifically excluded from the flavor formulation. In addition, the flavors do not include any derivatives from nuts. Food and beverage developers can feel confident using nut flavors without allergens in their formulations.

Our best-selling nut flavors without allergens

Blue Pacific offers many natural nut flavors without allergens. Here are our best-sellers. Try them out in your food and beverage products today!

Peanut

Our first nut on the list isn’t a nut at all, it’s a legume! However, peanuts share many of the same flavors and functions as tree nuts, and are therefore often lumped into the nut flavor category. Natural peanut flavor is distinctive and robust, characterized by a rich and earthy taste with a slight sweetness and savory finish. Peanut flavor is perhaps most recognizable in peanut butter, the classic creamy sandwich spread that’s both comforting and indulgent. It is integral to numerous confectioneries and baked goods where the contrast of its roasted and earthy notes balances the sweetness of other ingredients. Additionally, peanut flavor enhances savory dishes like satay sauces and stir-fries. You can use peanut flavor without allergens to add depth, complexity, and a comfort food nuance to many food and beverage applications.

Almond

Natural almond flavor has a creamy and slightly woody flavor backed by a delicate sweetness. It has a unique cherry flavor, too. This cherry note comes from benzaldehyde—a natural flavor compound inherent to both almonds and cherry pits. Almond flavor adds complexity and depth to various food and beverage applications. Almond extract is a key ingredient in an array of baked goods, including cakes, pastries, and biscotti, where it enhances the overall taste with a hint of cherry-like sweetness. The flavor is commonly used in dairy products like ice cream and yogurt, confectionery products such as macarons and marzipan, as well as savory condiments such as mole sauce.

Coconut

Natural coconut flavor delivers a distinct and tropical essence that, depending on the flavor profile, captures the fruity, creamy taste of fresh coconut milk or the buttery, roasted character of toasted coconut flakes. It has a subtle sweet top note accompanied by a lactone-rich base. This dual impact makes coconut flavor incredibly versatile in food and beverage products. Coconut is a popular natural beverage flavor, used most commonly in coconut water and piña coladas.

Brazil nuts are commonly used in confections such as chocolate bars and pralines, where their creamy texture pairs well with the sweetness of the chocolate. They are also a popular addition to baked goods like cookies and cakes, providing a delightful contrast to the crumbly textures. Additionally, Brazil nut oil, extracted from the seeds, lends its smooth flavor to dressings and gourmet cooking.

Cashew

Natural cashew flavor is similar to pistachio, but sweeter and less earthy. This distinctively smooth flavor profile makes it a popular ingredient in a variety of food and beverage formulations. Cashew cheese gets its creamy texture and mild, Brie-like taste from this little tree nut. Cashews are sometimes ground into paste and used as a base for sauces and desserts, adding a subtle yet indulgent flavor. In the confectionery industry, cashews contribute richness to chocolate bars and nut clusters, blending well with flavors of vanilla and caramel. Natural cashew flavor may be used to enhance or replace cashew nuts in these applications.

Macadamia Nut

Natural macadamia nut flavor is rich and buttery with a hint of sweetness…this is starting to sound like most nuts, right? However, the higher fat content of the macadamia nut creates an even creamier and more indulgent flavor experience. This richness is evident through the nuanced notes of buttered popcorn, cocoa butter, and coconut cream that characterize this marble-sized nut. Macadamia nuts are often used in baked goods and chocolates, where it adds a luxurious depth. It’s also a popular choice in savory dishes, including crusts for meats, where it adds a nutty edge to roasted protein flavors. Additionally, macadamia is a beloved ingredient in plant milks and smoothies, offering a velvety texture that enriches both sweet and savory applications. With so many popular macadamia nut products, wouldn’t it be great to have inclusive options made with macadamia nut flavor without allergens?
