Vanillin and ethyl-vanillin ingredients provider Solvay Aroma Performance created a non-GMO vanilla replacement that promises to mask “off-notes” and “enhance taste.”

Vanifolia® is a natural and functional vanillin based-solution, created from non-GMO rice. It meets the growing consumer trends on natural request, performance nutrition and food safety.

This artificial vanilla was created to mask astringency, metallic notes, grassy and earthy aftertastes that some ingredients such as stevia or whey can generate. The product promises to mix efficiently and disperse easily in solutions.

Vanifolia can be used in applications such as cakes, cookies, muffins, brownies waffles, premixes and custards as well as most confectionary applications. It is also promoted as a flavouring for energy or sports drinks.


Solvay promises complete traceability and food compliance thanks to regulatory and product stewardship from their team experts in vanillin ingredients.

Solvay plans to unveil their newest vanillin product at SupplySide West, in Las Vegas this year.

“The popularity of high-protein products continues to rise across all age groups, with the trend making its way into traditional market segments too,” comments Edouard Janssen, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Solvay Aroma Performance, Americas in a press release. “This has created many exciting opportunities for food and beverage manufacturers of course, however, creating tasty, high-protein products doesn’t come without its challenges. With more than 130 years of experience in developing novel vanillin ingredients, we are the ‘go-to’ experts for solutions that help manufacturers to overcome their off-note masking and mouthfeel issues. We’re excited to demonstrate what our evolving range of vanillin based solutions can do for our customers at SSW.”
