Pro-tip from our Senior Flavorist - Robin J. Rusinko

When choosing flavors for sports nutrition powders, look for fruits that complement the natural acidity of the powder, such as citrus or berry flavors. Green powders,  may be flavored with virtually anything, such as mango/vanilla, watermelon, or a tropical blend.  Plant proteins generally don't have citrus flavors because they lack acidity and have a heavy, frothy, and fibrous texture. Instead, chocolate, vanilla, and dessert flavors are often used.


We have different sweetener options available for powder supplements, including natural sweeteners, high-intensity sweeteners, granular sweeteners, and combinations. 


As experts in flavoring, we offer numerous options that go with the current season, the trends in the industry, or simply as you envisioned. Choose from natural, natural & artificial, or   artificial flavors while maintaining the highest integrity of product quality. Seeking microencapsulated or controlled release flavors? We’ve got your covered! The products we manufacture are non-GMO and we do offer organic products.
