August’s Flavor of the Month is …Watermelon!

For many around the world, watermelon is the epitome of summer flavors: refreshing, light, and sweet. While many people cannot access their favorite summer vacation spots, bringing the taste of summer to home is important. Despite lower consumer interest in 2019, the demand for watermelon is back up, especially in the beverage segment.  

Did you know? The taste of watermelon comes from the natural compounds Melon Aldehyde and Methyl 3 Nonenoate.  These compounds give watermelon flavor a perceived sweetness which can be added to foods and beverages without added sugar.
