Citrosa is Ferrer HealtHTech's brand for the flavonoid Neohesperidine Dyhydrochalcone. Citrosa is a flavour ingredient that has a very strong sweetness synergy with bulk sweeteners. This has converted Citrosa into a powerful and cost effective tool for sugar reduction.
Citrosa is also a good taste masker. Therefore, Citrosa is used in oral grade pharmaceuticals and in functional foods to increase consumer preference.
Citrosa is approved as a flavour under FEMA and in the EU. At the same time, Citrosa is allowed as a high intensive sweetener in the EU at higher concentrations.
Ferrer HealthTech produces Citrosa from bitter oranges. The fruits are harvested in Ferrer HealthTech's own orchard and in trusted plantations worlwide.
In addition to its application in the food industry, Citrosa is also indicated in cosmetics and animal feed.
