“In addition to our commercialized flavor ingredients, which include our Savory Flavors as well as the sweet taste enhancers, Senomyx is building a deep, longer-term pipeline of new ingredients with competitive advantages,” Snyder stated. “Development activities are ongoing with S9632, a new sucrose enhancer that can allow the reduction of up to 50% of the sugar in product prototypes without compromising taste. S9632 possesses advantageous physical properties that are beneficial for a broad range of beverages and foods and is expected to be complementary to S6973. The current activities are intended to support future regulatory filings for S9632 in the U.S. and elsewhere.
“We have further strengthened our Sweet Taste Program pipeline with the recent discovery of new enhancers of high fructose corn syrup that enable up to a 33% HFCS reduction while retaining the desired sweetness profile,” Snyder added. High fructose corn syrup is a widely used sweetener, with a worldwide market of approximately $6.3 billion.
“We are also very pleased to announce today that Senomyx has expanded our Savory Flavor offerings with S9229 and S5456, both of which have received GRAS regulatory status,” Snyder said. “Unlike Senomyx’s GRAS sweet enhancers that have no inherent taste but are used to amplify the characteristics of a specific sweetener, each of our Savory Flavors provides a new savory taste sensation. The taste profiles of the new Savory Flavors closely mimic MSG (monosodium glutamate), which makes them applicable for potentially a total replacement of MSG as well as the creation of new savory blends.”
The GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) determinations were made by the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) under the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act administered by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The GRAS status for S9229 and/or S5456 allows usage in a wide array of applications including snack foods, beverages, soups, seasonings, gravies, condiments and relishes, cereals, baked goods, gelatins and puddings, meat, poultry, fish, milk, and egg products.
