The Bold Flavors of Jalapeno Lime

April 2019 | Terra, Product Development Scientist

Hot and spicy food and drinks are, well, hot!  And when my customers crave heat, I want to be sure to deliver on bold and complex flavor as well. Having grown up in Southern California, I often look to the mouth-watering cuisine of Mexico for spicy food inspiration. Our Brand Aromatics Jalapeno Lime flavor base is the answer to satisfy the desire for complex fiery taste experiences for a variety of applications!

Although this base was created with a simple culinary blend, the final product is anything but basic. Its concentrated, high flavor impact means that a little bit of base goes a long way.  When tasting, there is an immediate sharp, tangy spiciness from the jalapeno that finishes with a tart, juicy lime flavor.

The versatility of this base caters to all consumers who love bold heat – vegetarians and carnivores alike.  To me, it’s reminiscent of jalapeno lime margaritas - but some other applications to take this base are in packaged grain-based meals, bone broth, dried mango snacks, beef jerky, cookies, cocktails and juices, canned black beans, salsas and more.
