Senomyx is using proprietary technologies to discover and develop novel
flavor ingredients for the food, beverage, and ingredient supply
industries. The Company’s flavor programs are focused on creating new
ingredients that enhance sweet, savory, salty, and cooling tastes, as
well as ingredients that reduce bitter taste. These new flavor
ingredients include S6973, a unique sucrose enhancer that may be used to
reduce up to 50% of the sugar in a variety of products while maintaining
the taste of natural sugar.
Senomyx has numerous patents regarding taste
receptors, high-throughput screening systems, new flavor ingredients,
and product applications. The Company has product discovery and
development collaborations with global food, beverage, and ingredient
supply companies, some of which are currently marketing products that
contain Senomyx’s flavor ingredients.
