Beverage formulation is no easy task. Although you may have a great idea in mind for a new beverage, it may be difficult for you, as an individual, to discover and secure all of the ingredients necessary to make your beverage idea into a reality. However, we're here to help! With a team of qualified beverage scientists well-equipped for the research and formulation necessary for your product.
After initial ideation, beverage formulation involves three steps: creation, prototypes, and commercialization.
Beverage formulation from the start involves ideation, or creation. Anyone with a great idea for a new beverage would need to consider the product’s feasibility, specific ingredients, packaging and the potential for a lab evaluation. After consideration, it may be best to bring a third party into the discussion. Oftentimes, beverage start-ups take their ideas to a beverage consulting firm, where the specifics of the product can be refined.
The process of beverage development involves a lot of prototypes.Throughout the process, a lab team will work carefully to craft your beverage into its final product. Each prototype may differ in color, ingredient, taste or functionality, but each new prototype brings your beverage idea one step closer to reality. Given that these are beverages, you can imagine how many people must sample the product during this time in order to perfect the potential product. Although the process may seem endless, the perfect combination of ingredients will come to bear at the end.
To prepare for commercialization, the lab team will prepare the nutritional information, ingredient statement, label and shelf-life data. This information will assist the beverage start-up as it scales-up its production and begins mass production.
Taken as a whole, beverage formulation is a tedious process. However, at its end is a product ready to be marketed and sold to consumers.
