A core commitment of the Flavor Research and Education Center (FREC) is to support the advancement of the flavor quality of healthy food options. Flavor quality is considered one of the main product attributes that influences food choice. Healthier foods options are often inferior in flavor quality, which impedes consumption and thus health impact. Historically, flavor research has focused on improving flavor by reducing levels of specific undesirable flavors, or increasing levels of desirable attributes.
