Taint troubleshooting

Our approach to identifying and providing advice on the source of taints and off-flavours is to combine our expertise in sensory and analytical chemistry. First, our sensory team will profile the taint in order to provide an indication of the source of the taint or off flavour. Second, this work is backed up by the chemists who may use sophisticated analysis such as LC-MS/MS or GC-MS to identify the compound causing the taint.

Combined, we aim to provide you with a rapid and robust answer to your taint problems.
