What is Bitter-Bloc™ Technology?
Other products on the market simply mask flavor defects, Bitter-Bloc™ actually blocks flavor defects from reaching taste receptors on the tongue to prevent the bitter molecules from binding with the receptor sites. In effect, it gives the product a cleaner taste. This allows formulators to use ingredients that meet consumer demand without compromising on taste. Works to eliminate bitter, salty, metallic, astringent, and general off-notes in a variety of oral formulations.

Is Bitter-Bloc™ a sweetness modulator? Bitter-Bloc™ is not a sweetness modulator as it does not affect sweetness. However, in some cases tasters will notice an enhanced flavor profile. Since bitterness is a strong flavor, it often will overpower the other flavors present. Bitter-Bloc™ will bring down the bitterness perception to the point that other flavors are now able to be perceived.
