About Us

Society members are flavor chemists by profession.  We come from different educational backgrounds, largely Chemistry, Food Science, Biology, and other related sciences.  Also called flavorists, we formulate flavors for a wide array of food, beverage, and pharmaceutical products utilizing science and creative talents along with analytical tools.  We continually study and taste products.  And we are always in pursuit of new and innovative materials as well as new ways and means to create great flavors that move the world.
