Bitter Blockers Program: The primary goals of this program are to reduce or block bitter taste and to improve the overall taste characteristics of foods, beverages, and ingredients. Two of Senomyx’s bitter blockers, S6821 and S7958, have received GRAS regulatory status. S6821 has demonstrated activity against bitter tasting foods and beverages that include soy and whey proteins, menthol, caffeine, cocoa, and Rebaudioside A (stevia). S7958, a related bitter blocker with similar functionality, has alternative desirable physical properties that may be useful for these or other product applications. Two Senomyx collaborators are currently evaluating S6821 for potential future commercialization.Salt Taste Program: The goal of the Salt Taste Program is to identify flavor ingredients that allow a significant reduction of sodium in foods and beverages yet maintain the salty taste desirable to consumers. Senomyx has assembled a proprietary database of proteins found in taste buds and is exploring the role of a number of these proteins that may be involved in salt taste perception. Progress is being made in this high-priority program as Company researchers are using a new, more sensitive analytical system to discover specific proteins that could be viable candidates for the receptors or co-factors responsible for salt taste.
