Flavor Research and Education Center


The Flavor Research and Education Center (FREC) works to understand drivers of flavor perception and, ultimately, food choice. We have built a holistic analytical platform that combines our extensive expertise with modern and advanced instrumentation to investigate and address unique and challenging aspects of flavor discovery.

Our services include chemical profiling of non-volatile and volatile compounds in different food matrixes, quantification of aroma and flavor compounds, identification of off-flavors, activity-guided isolation of key bioactive compounds, characterization of flavor interactions—including the discovery of flavor modulating compounds, and sensory analysis as part of analytical projects.
