Unmistakable French Onion Flavor

October 2019 | Rob, Applications Scientist

It’s a staple in restaurants all across America and a favorite of almost anyone fortunate enough to have tried a warm, heaping spoonful. I’m talking about the one and only French onion soup.

French onion flavor has always been a crowd pleaser, and all indications are that it’s only going to get more popular. With this in mind, I wanted to get the profile just right so we could bring that trendy French onion flavor to new, adventurous applications.

The challenge?  Developing the profile of French onion soup is more than replicating a few ingredients. You also have to capture the careful cooking method through which the soup got its goodness. Well, that’s exactly the kind of compound and reaction flavor synergy we used to create an unbelievable French onion dip. Seriously, it’ll change your life.

Think of the taste of a slow-cooked broth with braised beef and toasted onion. Imagine getting the flavor notes of a traditional cooking method without having to physically cook the ingredients. That’s what I’m talking about.

The dip is amazing. But you can try our unmistakable French onion flavor in anything from a dry soup mix, gravy, crackers, chips or wherever your imagination can take you.
