Sustainable and tasty!

Pomace extracts are an innovative and sustainable way to reuse pressing residues and avoid waste. These extracts are particularly valuable because, despite their origin, they offer an intense flavor quality achieved through maceration. Another advantage is that all pomace extracts do not contain alcohol, further increasing their versatility in various applications. An example of our pomace extracts is sea buckthorn, which provides variety in product creations with its fresh acidity. Did you already know pomace extracts?

The ultimate green trend product!

The ultimate green trend product!

We have to be careful when walking in the forest, but we can use this green herb generously in our drinks, dietary supplements, fruit gums or chocolate. In terms of taste, it has unimagined potential:
The herbal, fresh notes of nettle can give you that certain something in your product creation. That's why we give the green light for extraordinary taste creations! Have you ever thought about nettle extract?

Freshness factor of lemon grass!

Freshness factor of lemon grass!

In terms of taste, lemongrass combines a refreshing citrus aroma with a hint of ginger, bringing complexity to many foods and products. The subtle taste of lemongrass extract can be used to make aromatic teas, drinks and desserts.
But the ingredient is also suitable for hearty combinations: soups, curries and marinades can be refined with lemongrass extract.
Do you already have lemongrass extract in one of your products?

Suitable for Valentine's Day: A box of chocolates

Some time ago we briefly became a chocolate factory: We have brought the wonderful flavor combination of citrus extracts and chocolate to life in this form. The extracts are oil-based and are therefore perfect for use in chocolatey creations. These 4 chocolates with a dark organic chocolate coating and 4 different fillings are our signature flavors:

  • White chocolate meets lime or cedar lemon extract
  • Dark chocolate harmonizes with bergamot or red mandarin extract
    Who would like to try our Valentine's Day chocolates?

Our cooperation with Liquid Garden! (Part 1)

Together with the owners of the Hamburg cocktail bar Liquid Garden Charles Kanteh and Conor Furphy and their team, new drinks were developed last year. In the laboratory we worked together on various extracts with an umami flavor that were used to create savory drinks. You can see what makes this collaboration so exciting in this video:

Caution, two HOT product ideas!

Caution, two HOT product ideas!

There are no limits to the diversity of chili. There are many locations of the fiery pod, but sauces are among the classics. But there are a number of options here too, so we have brought you two options:
Option 1: Our chili chipotle extract, which gives a very smoky note.
Option 2: A Jalapeño Chili extract, which tastes very like green jalapeños.
Both flavors heat things up and give sauces a special chili note. Who dares to try?

Behind the scenes

Have you always wanted to take a look behind the scenes at Nutramaxx? Today is the day!
We have been pitching our (laboratory) tents at Hegestrasse 40 for a while now. Here we experiment with new flavors, extract diligently and let our heads smoke to work on new product developments for you. How do you like our Hamburger Lab?

An energy drink generated entirely by AI?

18.01.2024

An energy drink generated entirely by AI?

We were surprised, but that sounds delicious! We asked the AI ​​which caffeinated soft drink is best for surviving Dry January.
The “Lavender Lime Lemonade” combines the calming effect of lavender in conjunction with the freshness of lime and, together with the addition of organic caffeine from coffee beans or green tea, creates a drink that is not only invigorating but also relaxing.
What does it all look like? Pretty cool, we think! If you also want to combine lavender with lime extract and natural caffeine: We got you!

Our compensation year 2023!

11.01.2024

Our compensation year 2023!

With our climate sponsorship at positerra, we have offset a total of 100 tons of Co2 in 2023 on local soils by building hummus soils. 10.34 hectares in Jork in northern Germany were converted to regenerative agriculture using hummus soil. From the farmer's perspective, it's not just about climate protection, but also about protecting one's own soil. Building hummus means improving fertility, increasing the water-holding capacity of the soil, reducing the risk of erosion and increasing bioversity.
We are pleased about the balancing effects of the climate sponsorship and the transparent approach of positerra.

25.11.2023

Our caffeine overview

Caffeine extracts have a wide range of applications in the food industry, mainly due to their stimulating effects and their characteristic taste. Areas of application can include drinks such as teas, coffees, energy drinks or lemonades. They can also be mixed into dietary supplements to achieve the desired taste and effect. A subtle caffeine flavor with a hint of energy can also be added to baked goods, ice cream, and candies.

Product idea: Lemon spritzer with sweet blackberry leaf extract!

23.11.2023

Product idea: Lemon spritzer with sweet blackberry leaf extract!

Chinese blackberry leaves are characterized by their natural sweetness, which is thanks to the glycoside ruboside. With their natural plant sweetness, they are considered a sugar alternative and are around 200 times sweeter than conventional sugar. They are used to sweeten drinks such as herbal or fruit teas, spritzers or sports drinks. The sweetness of blackberry leaves together with refreshing, tart lemon can also be found in our application. Who would like to try?

Our Yuzu extract is perfect for all types of confectionery. Whether jams, gummy bears or chocolates - the citrus-like taste gives them a very special touch. One product idea includes combining dark chocolate with yuzu extract for a premium flavor explosion. Citrus fruits and chocolate are a welcome pair, but Japanese yuzu has that certain something. It combines lime notes with the bitterness of grapefruit and the sweetness of orange. Who would like to try?

We all know it, we all love it:

02.11.2023

We all know it, we all love it:

Cocoa offers a unique taste that combines bitterness, sweetness and fruity notes. Undoubtedly, cocoa is one of the most delicious and versatile ingredients in the world of culinary delights. Whether in chocolate, pastries, drinks or dairy products - it is a favorite flavor for many. For your product creation, Nutramaxx has a cocoa extract that is both kosher and halal.

New product idea: gentian herbal lemonade

19.10.2023

New product idea: gentian herbal lemonade

This week we are presenting a product idea for our gentian root extract. How about combined with a refreshing lemon or orange lemonade? The gentian root gives the sweetness of the lemonade a bitter note and can be perfectly rounded off with other herbs. The result is a natural, delicious taste. Have you been inspired yet? Try our gentian root extract yourself in your drink! EN-JOY!

A turmeric alternative?

12.10.2023

A turmeric alternative?

Cider root, also known as white turmeric, is a member of the ginger family. Earthy, spicy and slightly bitter flavors make them special. We used the cinnamon root from India and extracted it in an ethanol-water mixture before concentrating the macerate in our rotary evaporator at gentle temperatures. The result is our citrus root extract!
Particularly suitable for products such as soups, sauces or drinks for a subtle, slightly bitter seasoning. Fruity smoothies in particular would be given a special touch. In terms of taste, the cinnamon root represents an alternative to conventional ginger or turmeric combinations.

For everyone who loves coffee not only as a treat but also as a source of energy:

05.10.2023

For everyone who loves coffee not only as a treat but also as a source of energy:

Our organic caffeine from green coffee beans has a caffeine content of 94.5-99% and is guaranteed to get us jumping out of bed in the morning. The slightly bitter taste of caffeine can be used to complement organic drinks or organic energy drinks. Other areas of application include caffeinated candies or chocolate (Schokakola), but of course also all other foods that may contain caffeine. This is declared as “organic caffeine” or “organic caffeine from coffee beans”.
We are awake. You too?

Nutramaxx X Liquid Garden

21.09.2023

Nutramaxx X Liquid Garden

On Monday there was a press event in the Hamburg cocktail bar Liquid Garden with the owners Charles Kanteh and Conor Furphy and their team. 30 press representatives were present, planned and coordinated by Nina Deutschmann and Alisha. Anne-Katrin Herr, Susanne Meister, Georg Hertell and Michael Behr from Nutramaxx were present. It became clear how we, as a company that actually supplies the food industry, can also develop exciting extracts for the catering industry. New signature drinks were developed together with Nutramaxx CEO / taste expert Michael Behr and the bar's mixologists. We wanted to make the topic of extracts more accessible. All the raw materials we contributed were raw materials from Madagascar:
Bourbon vanilla extract, Malagasy pepper distillate and Malagasy coffee extract.
The flavor intensity of natural distillates and extracts forms a sophisticated combination with high-proof and non-alcoholic drinks. The 3 cocktails with our Nutramaxx ingredients will be included in the new autumn menu of the Liquid Garden program.
The collaboration with Liquid Garden creates a creative exchange with other experts and provides inspiration for creations that consumers may soon be able to experience in lemonade, ice cream or candies.
Also our non-profit association Help Mada e. V., which builds schools and health centers in the north-east of Madagascar, was given special attention because our Malagasy raw materials give the drinks very special notes.

Did you know this about corn poppies?

14.09.2023

Did you know this about corn poppies?

Both the petals and the seeds of the corn poppy are used in food and drinks. While the taste of the seeds is more familiar, the flowers can also shine with their delicate, slightly nutty and slightly sweet notes. But the petals are often not red at all, but dark purple!
We have also produced a poppy flower extract in our laboratory, which stands out due to its intense dark purple color. It is particularly good for making sweets and sweets.

Are you already awake?

07.09.2023

Are you already awake?

Our organic green tea extract is the solution for drinks that are supposed to give you an energy boost. It consists of more than 90% caffeine and is an ingredient that provides a special kick. In terms of taste, the extract stays in the background and only has slightly bitter notes, so that the main components get their stage moment. Free from conventional allergens, the extract can be used in many (organic) products. It is also suitable for Kosher and Halal products and is vegetarian and vegan.
Ready for a little more energy?

A flowery product idea? We got you.

31.08.2023

A flowery product idea? We got you.

We have already introduced many flower extracts this year. However, this combination should provide a particularly unusual note: violet blossom apple vinegar!
There are already interesting vinegar combinations with different types of flowers in supermarkets. The delicate, floral, slightly sweet taste of our violet extract harmonizes with the fruitiness of the apple cider vinegar. Of course, our extract can also be used in drinks, desserts or pastries.
More information is to be found on our LinkedIn post!

Inauguration of our medical center

24.08.2023

Inauguration of our medical center

Two weeks ago we were able to celebrate a great success of our non-profit organization Help Mada e. V.: With the help of your donations, we were able to help finance the construction of our first health center in Madagascar. The village of Namohana is located in northeast Madagascar, about 20km from Antalaha. This is also the distance that previously had to be covered on foot when there was a medical emergency.
With the construction of the infirmary, not only the people in Namohana, but also 7 other surrounding Fokontany (Malagasy villages) can benefit. In total, more than 11,000 people now have access to primary medical care. We were able to witness the inauguration of the infirmary personally and were overwhelmed by the joy of the people. The construction of the infirmary is of great importance for the village and has an enormous impact on the development of the medical infrastructure in the area. We would like to thank you for your support! 100% of the collected donations flowed exclusively into the financing of this non-profit project. Together we could make a big difference.
Our journey with Help Mada e.V. continues. Our next project involves expanding a school. If you or your company would like to be a supporter, please contact us at info@help-mada.org.

The most beautiful ingredient in the world ...

17.08.2023

The most beautiful ingredient in the world ...

Bourbon vanilla is one of the most well-known and sought-after varieties of vanilla, widely used in the food industry primarily for its rich and complex flavor profile. Originally from Mexico, it is now grown in different regions of the world, including Madagascar, Réunion and Comoros. The name "Bourbon" goes back to the island of Réunion, which was formerly also called Bourbon.
Vanilla pods from Madagascar, for example, are characterized by their high content of vanillin - the main flavor of vanilla. The almost sweet, slightly woody and slightly spicy taste of vanillin gives many foods a pleasant depth and complexity. Bourbon vanilla is often more intense and nuanced compared to synthetically produced vanillin. Whether in baked goods, ice cream and desserts, beverages, sauces and fillings, candy or yogurt and dairy products, bourbon vanilla is often praised as a high-quality ingredient for its natural and authentic taste.
Vanilla has a special meaning for us, which is why we not only let ourselves be inspired by the vanilla orchid for our logo, but also offer a wide range of products. We can offer conventional bourbon vanilla extracts, organic grade extracts, baby food grade extracts and halal and kosher vanilla extracts. In addition, you can also get whole bourbon vanilla beans in gourmet quality or extraction quality (cut), as well as powder, extracted or non-extracted.
For us there is no more beautiful raw material! Are you also a vanilla fan?

10.08.2023

Come on Barbie, let's go party!

If summer is a long time coming in Hamburg, we will have summer in a glass. A few weeks ago we introduced our Mallow Blossom Extract, which is normally a deep purple-blue color. As if the extract had noticed something of the Barbie hype, it turns a bright pink when mixed with gin and tonic.
Convincing in terms of color and taste: Our Mallow Blossom Gin Tonic Drink.

Reduce sugar without artificial sweeteners?

03.08.2023

Reduce sugar without artificial sweeteners?

No-calorie sweeteners cannot 100% mimic the original sugar taste. It is not without reason that light drinks, for example, taste different from their originals. Product developers who still want to reduce the sugar content of their products by up to 30% can use Sweet Enhancer.
Certain molecules act as sweet taste enhancers and have no taste of their own.
With 0.1% of our Sweet Enhancer Flavor, the sugar content of food can be reduced by a third. The product is water soluble and can be declared as a "natural aroma". We think this is a great way to make products less sugary. Who wants to try this?

Flowers instead of nuts

27.07.2023

Flowers instead of nuts

This month is all about flowers. So why are we talking about nutmeg today?
Mace, also known as mace, is the dried seed coat of the fruit of the nutmeg tree, which is native to the Indonesian "spice islands". The mace is separated from the pulp and spread out to dry, resulting in the yellowish-brown color of mace.
The taste of the flower is similar to that of nutmeg: spicy, tart, slightly sweet and musky.
Our mace extract can be used to flavor savory dishes such as mashed potatoes, pumpkin dishes, soups, sauces and marinades. If you want to try something new, you can also try the extract in desserts - it is particularly good in combination with vanilla and cinnamon.

Nutramaxx cooperates with Australian Vanilla Plantations

It is our pleasure to partner with Australian Vanilla Plantations and begin construction of the first Vanilla Dome in Europe. The Vanilla Dome is a semi-circular vertical farming construction with a diameter of approximately 10 meters for growing vanilla plants. We want to understand the vanilla plant even better and test different situations: We will simulate different stress situations for the plant using sunlight, artificial UV light, humidity and temperature. Our goal is to get the highest possible vanillin content in the vanilla beans. The subsequent fermentation process is also strictly controlled and monitored. We can harvest around 1.5-2 tons of green pods per year for fermentation. We can then use the fermented pods to produce vanilla extracts, for example.
The big challenge with vanilla is pollination of the flower. This is a complex and demanding task. Vanilla orchids only have a short flowering period, often just a day. Pollination must take place in this short period of time in order to enable successful fertilization. The flower is hermaphrodite, so you can fertilize it with yourself. Enough pollen must be transferred from a flower to the stigma for fertilization to be successful.
Cameras with AI detection are installed inside the vanilla dome so that we can recognize the open flowers. Whenever a flower opens, an alarm is triggered and the flower can be pollinated by hand.

Not only visually beautiful, but also in terms of taste.

13.07.2023

Not only visually beautiful, but also in terms of taste.

This flower is related to the hibiscus, but its flowers are smaller and a rich purple. In our laboratory we worked on a mallow blossom extract, which also impresses with its purple-blue color.
The taste is mild, flowery-sweet and is therefore ideal in products such as sweets, drinks or ice cream as a special touch to round it off.
Good to know: Our mallow blossom extract can be declared as such and the blossoms can therefore also be printed on the packaging.

What does tonka taste like?

06.07.2023

What does tonka taste like?

Its taste is described as intense, exotic and similar to vanilla.
The sweet, slightly bitter and spicy notes form a harmonious complement to desserts, baked goods, confectionery and liqueurs. The spice is also used as a vanilla alternative. In our laboratory we have produced an alcohol-free, intensive organic tonka bean extract, in which a small dosage of 0.3-0.5% is sufficient to achieve a well-rounded taste profile.
How about a tonka cherry ice cream? And if you like it more classic: mousse au chocolat with tonka beans.

Elderflower product idea

29.06.2023

Elderflower product idea

Elderflowers are often found in summer drinks, but they can be used in many areas. A fresh summer synergy is offered by the flavor combination of elderflower and yoghurt, which can be used in the form of a cake, for example.
Everything important at a glance:

  • Declaration: elderflower extract
  • Dosage: 0.1-0.5%
  • Vegetarian
  • Organic available
  • Kosher
  • Halal
    Who wants to taste a piece?
Summer is here!

22.06.2023

Summer is here!

Our non-alcoholic bitter extracts are the perfect companions for your summer drink.
We mixed a few drops of cinchona, wormwood and pomegranate together with soda and conjured up a real alcohol-free treat with ice cubes and orange as a garnish.
Do you have an idea what we should mix next?

Do you want even more umami flavor?

15.06.2023

Do you want even more umami flavor?

With our shiitake extract, things can continue heartily.
Shiitake mushrooms are rich in guanosine monophosphate, an ingredient that creates the savory umami flavor. They therefore naturally contain taste-enhancing properties. We macerated our shiitake extract in our development laboratory for a few days and then gently concentrated it to an intensive extract in a rotary evaporator. As a result, even a small dosage is sufficient to enhance the taste.
The shiitake extract is best used in hearty dishes, e.g. soups, sauces, vegetarian or vegan meat alternatives.
Are you curious?

Peanut flavor without no fear of an allergy?

08.06.2023

Peanut flavor without no fear of an allergy?

Wouldn't it be great to enjoy the peanut flavor without fear of an allergy?
We have a great solution for everyone who wants to experience the typical peanut taste despite an allergy: Our allergen-free peanut extract.
It can be used in various foods and products as a substitute for traditional peanut extract. For example, baked goods, sweets, snacks and sauces can be refined with it.
Allergen-free peanut extract offers people with peanut allergies the opportunity to enjoy the taste of peanuts in their favorite foods without the risk of allergic reactions.
How is the allergen-free extract made? In the first pressing, native peanut oil is separated from freshly roasted peanuts, from which the aroma components are enriched by high-pressure extraction with natural carbon dioxide.
The product therefore contains no other traces of solvents, no inorganic salts, no heavy metals and no germs capable of reproduction.
Who got curious?

Ice cream product idea!

25.05.2023

Ice cream product idea!

Our mango extract simply scores in terms of taste. Especially in summer our tongues can't get enough of the fruity and aromatic taste of ripe mangoes.
Our product recommendation: dairy mango ice cream in combination with white chocolate.

Everything important at a glance:

  • Declaration: mango extract
  • Dosage: 0.1-0.2%
  • Kosher suitable

Good to know: Our mango extract can be declared as such and mangoes can therefore also be printed on the packaging. Have you ever thought about this combination?

Can you already taste summer?

18.05.2023

Whether in refreshing drinks, ice cream, sweets or fruit gums: Our strawberry extract intensively brings out the natural taste of strawberries. Like freshly picked from the field! But let your creative imagination run wild! The classic can also be found in unconventional combinations.

This spice classic is anything but boring!

11.05.2023

This spice classic is anything but boring!

It's not just that there are many different varieties that inspire us, but also numerous areas of application in which the spice can be used. In our laboratory we have ventured into the production of various pepper distillates. The result is characteristic flavors and distinctly different flavors that are not hot.
Which of these distillates do you find most exciting?
Anyone who has become curious about the different areas of application should stay tuned. We are currently working on interesting flavor combinations!

Our 10 x 5 Plan

04.05.2023

Our 10 x 5 Plan

Our non-profit organization Help Mada has set itself the goal of building health centers and schools in the northeast of Madagascar. We will inaugurate the first infirmary in August! Follow us on LinkedIN and Instagram for the latest information or just visit our website.
What we always emphasize: 100% of the donations are used to finance the projects. We have no advertising or travel costs that burden our association. No promotion teams addressing people on the street. In order to guarantee this, we have submitted to the guidelines of the ITZ (Initiative Transparent Civil Society).
In order to advance our projects even faster, we developed our "10 x 5 = 🖤 Plan:
We are looking for 10 companies by the end of the year, each of which will support us with 5,000 euros a year - this way we can build 1 infirmary or 1 school every year. Of the 10 companies, we already have 2 plus 1 private individual who have given us their commitment to our 10 x 5 plan.

Bitter can show a large variety!

27.04.2023

Bitter can show a large variety!

Bitter extracts can be obtained from various raw materials such as roots, bark and herbs.
Because they are non-alcoholic, they are perfect for use in a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. Regardless of where they come from, these extracts have their own unique flavor and exhibit the same complex array of robust, interwoven notes that we refer to as "bitter." Bitter extracts are versatile and can also be used in dietary supplements. We especially love wormwood, benedict herb, devil's claw, cinchona bark and angostura bark.

Small, round and aromatic!

20.04.2023

Small, round and aromatic!

We simply love this berry classic - whether in ice cream, cakes, desserts or in drinks, smoothies or dairy products such as yoghurt.
Also an eye-catcher in color: The blueberry. We have used specially dried organic blueberries for our blueberry extract in order to retain the natural and fresh taste of the fruit. These are also wild blueberries, which are spicier and more intense than cultivated blueberries.
Our extract has a beautiful purple coloration, which is caused by the antioxidants, called anthocyanins, found in blueberries.
In terms of taste, you can expect authentic, sweet, spicy and floral blueberry notes.
Together with vanilla or cheesecake, the blueberry can be used in delicious flavor combinations.
Fancy getting involved in the taste experience?

This plant has been on the trend radar for a long time

13.04.2023

This plant has been on the trend radar for a long time

The caffeinated beverage from South America is often part of new beverage innovations. It has also been enjoyed in this country for many years.
We're talking about mate. The traditional drink is made from the dried leaves of the mate bush and has a similar effect to coffee. We offer mate in the form of a fine powder with 8% caffeine. Due to the powder form, the product dissolves easily in water and is therefore easy to work with.
In addition to the use of drinks, the mate powder is also very suitable for use in sweets, sweets or ice cream. The bitter, earthy mate note is a well-rounded taste experience on its own.
Did you know that mate can also be wonderfully combined with other flavors? Male ginger, mate hibiscus flower or mate lime are fantastic examples.
Do you already have mate fever?

06.04.2023

May we introduce? Our hearty extracts.

Umami is a savory flavor that is often described as meaty, brothy, or savory. It is the fifth basic taste, along with sweet, sour, salty and bitter.
The taste of umami is often described as rich and full-bodied with a long-lasting aftertaste. The theme of heartiness runs through our listed extracts.
They either contain umaminotes or are suitable for refining spicy product creations.
Can you think of products in which our hearty extracts can be used?

Crunchy & refreshing

31.03.2023

Crunchy & refreshing

In our laboratory, we diligently extracted again using our Soxhlet rotary evaporator.
This method ensures that the flavorings are extracted from the raw materials particularly efficiently and gently. This time we used specially dried cucumbers, which impress with their fresh taste. The result is a cucumber extract that tastes like a cucumber.
There are no limits to creativity, because this extract can be used in many products. It can be used especially in drinks and thus refine water, juices, smoothies or cocktails. Special ice cream creations such as the mint-cucumber combination could also be created. Sauces, soups or milk and yoghurt products could also be refined with the special and refreshing taste.

Why we are aiming for an IFS certification this year

23.03.2023

Why we are aiming for an IFS certification this year

An IFS certification is a certification according to the International Featured Standards (IFS). The internationally recognized standard for evaluating brokers and importers of food importers shows that the products meet the requirements of customers and legal regulations.
This ensures food safety and quality in relation to the purchase, storage, sale and distribution of the products. The following points are taken into account during the review:
Responsibility: The management assumes responsibility for compliance with quality standards.
Quality: Documentation of the fulfillment of the requirement must exist in the form of a system.
Resources: In order to ensure the quality and safety of the products, there must be sufficient staff, infrastructure and equipment.
Product integrity and safety: Quality and safety are assured.
Customer satisfaction: Customer expectations and requirements are met.
Legal Requirements: The sale and distribution of food and other products must comply with legal requirements.
Traceability: Products must be traceable from source to point of sale.
Service contracts: Services are only procured from certified suppliers.
All of these points correspond to our corporate values, which is why we are aiming for IFS certification as one of our annual goals this year. We will keep you up to date on the latest developments.
Do you know what an IFS certification entails?

Getting closer to our goal ...

16.03.2023

Getting closer to our goal ...

We have come a step closer to our goal of having offset our CO2 emissions by 2024.
We looked at many projects to offset our annual, unavoidable CO2 emissions of around 100 tons. Finally, we decided on a domestic project in Germany that coordinates the creation of humus soils together with farmers.
Our new partner in this area is the non-profit company positerra GmbH.
The aim of positerra GmbH is to set up and support a transparent and verifiable process that enables us as a company to offset CO2 emissions.
The goal is to achieve the highest possible CO2 binding per hectare of agricultural land, while maintaining or increasing the yield.
On the one hand, positerra GmbH contracts farmers who will from now on cultivate their land regeneratively and build up humus in a targeted manner, and on the other hand, companies are acquired that want to balance their emissions regionally. Both – companies and farmers are brought together.
Why humus?
Humus is an organic material that results from the decomposition of plant and animal remains. Humus contains carbon. The plant absorbs the CO2 from the atmosphere and converts it into carbon through photosynthesis.
This is a source of food for countless soil organisms, which in turn stimulate soil life through their own metabolic processes and thus promote the formation of humus. The aim of the entire cycle is to bind carbon in the soil for a longer period of time.
However, there are limits to the ability of humus soils to fix carbon dioxide. If conditions are not favorable for soil formation or agricultural management is unsustainable, there can be a loss of soil carbon, which is then released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
Therefore, it is important to practice sustainable regenerative agriculture and to use soil management practices that promote soil carbon sequestration to reduce carbon emissions and conserve soil as an important carbon sink.

Many know the typical truffle taste, but did you know that there are many different types of truffles? Winter truffle, summer truffle, white truffle, Burgundy truffle and Perigord truffle are just a few examples of the many varieties.
In our laboratory we started the experiment to produce two truffle extracts from the same original raw material, each with different extraction methods.
The first truffle extract was produced using the classic maceration method, in which we soaked the dried truffle in an ethanol-water mixture for several days. Earthy, mushroomy and umami aromas are more noticeable here. The second truffle extract was made using the Soxhlet extraction method. Purer and fresher notes of truffle can be tasted.The result is two extracts that carry the unmistakable truffle aroma, but have very different flavor profiles and can be used for very different products.
Would you like to try the two truffle extracts and discover their differences?

Come with us on our flight!

Madagascar's rainforests are a unique and valuable ecosystem that is home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world.
The rainforests cover less than 2% of the country's land area, but they are rich in biodiversity, including more than 10,000 plant species and a wide variety of lemurs, birds, reptiles and insects.
Madagascar has a special meaning for us, because that's where we get the vanilla pods for our bourbon vanilla extracts.
On the occasion of this, we also founded our non-profit organization Help Mada e. V. was founded, which takes care of the construction of schools and health centers in the north-east of the country.
This year we are traveling to Madagascar again to start new vanilla projects and to inaugurate a medical infirmary, which we financed with our donations.
What would you like to know about Madagascar?

BIOFACH 2023

BIOFACH 2023

This year it didn't just seem like the year went by quickly again. The last BIOFACH trade fair in 2022 was postponed to the end of July and was therefore less than a year ago. Nevertheless, we were once again able to take away exciting impressions.
Innovations such as tea from a tube or vegan fish creations were just a few of the highlights that impressed us last week.
A product presentation that we particularly remember is from a supplier which offers an impressively large range of dried plants. The simple, but at the same time beautiful presentation of various dried plants has already inspired us to come up with further extract ideas.
Were you at BIOFACH? What impressed you the most?

Would you like a gin break? 2023 is the year of the eggnog!

Would you like a gin break? 2023 is the year of the eggnog!

Vanilla aroma is often used in eggnog creations. However, if you want a particularly fine note, we have something for you. Whether you are in need of conventional, organic or Naturland quality: our bourbon vanilla extract is the perfect complement to the mild sweetness of the eggnog. The dosage is 0.1-0.3%.
The pods used come from north-east Madagascar, near Antalaha. We have direct contact with the local farmers. The pods are fermented on site with the help of the sun and thus develop their incomparable, intense vanilla aroma. After the pods have been fermented and dried, we cut them into 2-3 cm pieces in Germany.
The pods are then extracted using a Soxhlet extraction system and our delicious bourbon vanilla extract is ready, which you can declare in exactly the same way in your list of ingredients. Of course, you can also show the vanilla orchid including the pod on the front of the label.

Sour can be bitter!

Sour can be bitter!

Lemons don't always have to be sour, because the citrus fruit actually offers a wide variety of tastes. This time we used lemon peel, which is dominated by the bitter aromas combined with fruity and sour notes. We macerated the dried peel from Spain in an ethanol-water mixture for a few days and then, after filtering and sieving, evaporated it in our vacuum rotary evaporator. The result was our intensely aromatic lemon peel extract.
Our lemon peel extract is therefore particularly suitable as a special addition to drinks or, for example, ice cream.
Especially in spring and summer we look forward to the indispensable citrus taste. Are you ready for warmer temperatures?

Another new family member in our lab!

02.02.2023

Another new family member in our lab!

Since a few weeks we can welcome our new helper: Our new vacuum Soxhlet rotary evaporator. Unlike our other vacuum rotary evaporator, we can produce larger sample quantities (up to 250g per use to previous 50-100g).The Soxhlet extraction unit allows us to extract very valuable raw materials such as vanilla. It is a continuous extraction process and therefore more effective than other processes. Significantly more aroma substances can be extracted in this way. More about this in one of our next posts!
In a very gentle way, we can now continue to work on interesting flavor creations.

26.01.2023

We do fresh. You too?

Over the past few months, we have processed different types of mint into extracts in our laboratory. Conclusion: not all mint is the same. Our mint varieties could not be more different from each other. Therefore, there is a suitable mint variety for every product idea. From sweet to spicy, the mint varieties can cover a very wide spectrum of tastes. To have everything at a glance, you will find our mint extracts and their descriptions packed in a slideshow.
Do you already know all the mint types?
It can be said that almost all our mint types are certified organic. Only ground ivy comes from controlled wild collection.
Has the variety of freshness already grabbed you and are you already curious about one of the mint types? Do not hesitate to ask for a sample.

19.01.2023

Unique like no other!

The pink berry, also called pink pepper, is not related to black pepper or other pepper varieties. Nevertheless, it is especially unique: When mortared, it unfolds delicate, juniper-like and sweet aromas. Unlike other types of pepper, however, pink berries are not spicy like black pepper.
In the production of our distillate, we used berries from the Brazilian pepper tree (Schinus tree) and crushed them before they went into our vacuum rotary evaporator. Drinks, in particular, can be wonderfully enhanced with these special flavors.
Have you ever tried pink pepper?

We do umami. You too?

12.01.2023

We do umami. You too?

In our laboratory, we were already keen to experiment at the beginning of the year and took a well-known berry fruit to hand.
Our flavorful tomato extract has it all: sweet meets savory and spicy. The extract's particularly savory notes are the epitome of the 5th flavor, umami, which exists alongside sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Perfect for seasoning sauces, soups or pastes. We have used dried tomato granules and macerated them in an aqueous ethanolic solution, then sieved, filtered and then gently extracted under vacuum.
Does the hearty tomato idea make your mouth water too?

New year, new goals.

05.01.2023

New year, new goals.

We would like to share with you some of our goals for 2023.
We will continue to increase our share of organic products in total sales. Organic products and regionality are becoming increasingly important. Last year we focused a lot on naturalness and this year we will focus even more on it.
IFS certification. In order to meet our demand for high quality, we strive for the certification of the International Food Standards.
More sustainability and social commitment. Already last year, with our non-profit organization Help Mada e. V. get things moving. Other projects are also planned for this year. In addition, we will take further steps towards sustainability and a CO2-neutral company.
We look motivated to the coming months and wish you a great start into the new year!

We do 2023. You too?

29.12.2022

We do 2023. You too?

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas season and a successful start to the new year!
We look forward to old and new contacts, exciting projects and above all taste experiments.
The Nutramaxx team wishes you a happy new year 2023!

Our flavor highlights 2022!

Since setting up our lab in Hafen City earlier this year, we've been able to experiment with many flavors. Using our vacuum rotary evaporator, we have produced selected extracts that have all impressed us in their own way.
In 2022 we have already introduced you to some of our extracts, but these combinations should surprise you. Together we get further! These are our top 3 flavor combinations of 2022.
Which one is your favorite?

15.12.2022

Something fresh in between!

After all the Christmas fever we have a change for you, because we are continuing with our mint series!
Spearmint is used in particular in chewing gum, but its taste is also present in teas and other beverages. In our laboratory we used dried organic mint leaves from Italy.
We think it stands out above all with its spicy freshness and light sweetness. It is also less spicy than peppermint because it contains less menthol.
We recommend spearmint for sweets, to flavor sauces or as a fresh touch in desserts.

We do mulled wine. You too?

07.12.2022

We do mulled wine. You too?

The magic of Christmas has now completely got hold of us and we completely devote ourselves to the classic Christmas market delicacies.
What should not be missing at Christmas time is mulled wine! Our two mulled wine spice extracts can convince either with their spicy or rather fruity taste.
The fruity version gives the classic a special touch. Berry aromas are in the foreground and are reminiscent of blackberries. A fine note of vanilla gives the extract that certain something. The spicy extract tastes of cinnamon and cloves. A hint of cardamom provides the ultimate Christmas flavor.

This type of mint is different!

01.12.2022

This type of mint is different!

Nanamint or Moroccan mint is less methol-like than peppermint. This mint combines freshness, but also floral notes, as well as the taste of aloe vera. Mild sweetness meets a subtle sharpness. Moroccan mint is used particularly in teas.
For our nanamint extract we use mint leaves from certified organic cultivation in Italy. We have already been convinced of this fine mint aroma in our laboratory experiments.
The special flavor profile of nanamint can be perfectly combined with cold and hot drinks in the form of our natural mint extract. It is also excellent in sweets and candies!

Against the rules!

24.11.2022

Against the rules!

If you have a very close look this herb does not even belong to the mint genus, however, they both come from the mint family and are closely related.
Gundermann or also Gundelrebe visually resembles the mint leaves as we know them, but their leaves are heart-shaped. As a medicinal plant, it was well known among the Germans and in the Middle Ages. Its name derives from the ancient pennyroyal.
Gundermann is used as a spring herb in soups or in salads and also does not have a typical mint smell. We are particularly enthusiastic about its strong and herbal note. It complements well with the rest of our mint range.

17.11.2022

Crunchy shell, tender inside.

Citrus extracts can be used in many different ways and can be combined in multiple ways. You probably know the combination of dark chocolate and orange, but have you ever dared more?
We brought the wonderful flavor combination of citrus extracts and chocolate to life in the form of our chocolates. The extracts are oil-based and are therefore perfect for use in chocolatey creations.

These 4 combinations melt in our mouths:

  • Organic white chocolate meets clementine extract
  • Organic white chocolate meets cedar lemon extract
  • Dark organic chocolate meets bergamot extract
  • Dark organic chocolate meets red tangerine extract

Clementine and cedar lemon harmonize perfectly with a delicate, light ganache made from white couverture, while we find the combination of tangerine and bergamot with a fine, dark ganache made from dark couverture very harmonious.
The praline samples are handmade. In addition to the various fillings, the crunchy casings are also cast and colored by hand.

Let's continue in a fresh way!

10.11.2022

Let's continue in a fresh way!

Number 2 of our mint series is the well-known classic: peppermint. Mint and peppermint are often used as synonyms, but mint is the genus and peppermint is the variety.
The nickname "piperita" refers to the refreshing taste of the mint variety. It stands out for its spicy and very aromatic notes. Its menthol content in particular is significantly higher than that of other types of mint. When we made our own peppermint extract using our vacuum rotary evaporator, we also noticed mild, tea-like flavors.

We know the taste of peppermint from candies, chocolate pralines or ice cream. Have we piqued your interest in trying our peppermint extract?

We 🖤 organic and regional!

03.11.2022

We 🖤 organic and regional!

Last week we visited the organic farm Stövesandt in Niedersachsen. There we looked at how ginger and turmeric are grown. Particularly impressive: It is possible to plant ginger and turmeric in Germany! We have learned that a great of know-how is required to make them grow that well. This includes, for example, the so-called "mother tubers" having to germinate for several weeks before they are sown. Many new ginger tubers then develop from the mother tubers.
When the ginger is harvested, it is washed, cut, sorted and packaged on site so that it can be sold fresh. Due to the regional cultivation, it does not have to be imported from other countries, which is a great climate-friendly advantage. Fresh ginger looks much more colorful than the ginger that we know from the supermarket. It also tastes a little fresher and even a little juicy.

We took some of the ginger with us for our laboratory tests and are currently working on an organic ginger extract from Germany.

Not only certified organic, but also Narurland-certified ...

25.10.2022

Not only certified organic, but also Narurland-certified ...

Our Naturland-certified lemon, orange and cola spice extracts are Naturland certified.

Independent checks are carried out on our extracts several times a year to ensure the highest standard and to maintain the internationally recognized certification. Ecological production systems and sustainability in production are of particular relevance. The Naturland guidelines cover areas that go beyond the EC organic regulation and therefore offer a high level of ecological quality.

Our extracts lemon, orange and spice extract type cola are ideal for use in beverages or confectionery!

Our path to becoming a CO2-neutral company ...

17.10.2022

Our path to becoming a CO2-neutral company ...

Our goal is to make all our business processes climate-neutral by 2024. We have implemented another small step in this direction in the last few weeks.

We have switched all our employee credit cards to the provider Pliant. On the one hand, you have very good cost control, you can see immediately which documents are missing and all transactions can be synchronized with DATEV.
On the other hand, with every transaction we see how much CO2 is generated. Pliant has various climate projects, so it is possible for us to offset our business expenses and the associated CO2 emissions.

CO2 compensation is about emissions that a company cannot avoid. This can be offset by investing in certified sustainability projects. These projects are designed to reduce future emissions.

At the end of the year we get a certificate and know how much CO2 we have emitted due to business trips. An example: A flight from Berlin to Munich with 3 overnight stays and a taxi ride to and from the hotel results in CO2 emissions of 245.7 kg.

Programs are currently being supported in Ghana (efficient cooking stoves), India (solar water heaters) and Bulgaria (methane reduction).

The symbol of a long life.

The symbol of a long life.

Ginkgo is the Japanese temple tree that is sacred in China and Japan. But how does gingko actually taste?

We mixed dried organic ginkgo leaves with an ethanolic-aqueous solution to create a macerate. Thus, the ingredients and flavorings were released from the leaves. The ginkgo leaves were then sieved out of the solution and the extract was filtered so that no solids remained in the extract. In the last step, the extract was evaporated to a thick extract in a rotary evaporator.

The ginkgo leaves convinced us in terms of taste: They give a pleasantly mild, green, tea-like and round aroma.

Mint can taste fruity?

06.10.2022

Mint can taste fruity?

We start our mint series with apple mint. For us, it's all about the taste!

Its name already says it all: apple mint impresses with its light apple taste and scent. The mint experience is sweet, refreshing and fruity, which makes it ideal for hot and cold beverage creations. A lower menthol content allows the sweet aromas to stand out more. Lemonades, teas and sweets are perfect for an apple mint refinement.

Have you ever tried apple mint?

Those were some refreshing experiments!

04.10.2022

Those were some refreshing experiments!

Did you know that #mint is not just mint? In the past few weeks we have been experimenting a lot with unusual mint varieties. Do you know the difference between pineapple and apple mint? We are amazed at the difference in taste.

Get ready for exciting updates from our lab!

This project is particularly important to us!

29.09.2022

This project is particularly important to us!

This month we are not only on the subject of bourbon vanilla beans, but also as part of our non-profit association Help Mada e. V. traveled to the northeast of Madagascar. Our insights there overwhelmed us.

What exactly do we do at Help Mada?
The large island state of #Madagascar generally has poor infrastructure and a comparatively low standard of living. Medical care and education suffer as a result. Often there is neither a hospital nor a school for miles - especially in the rural areas. The United Nations Human Development Index is 176 out of 191 listed countries.

Very few own a car and if a journey is contested by vehicle, very poor road conditions sometimes make the journey more difficult. In relation: We needed about 1.5 hours by car for the 10km-long way to the village of Namohana.

For this reason, since 2020 we have been supporting the construction of schools and health centers in rural areas in north-eastern Madagascar by collecting donations.

During the trip, we felt the impact these projects can have on people. Unexpectedly, the whole village in Namohana welcomed us with happy dancing and singing. The plan is to build an infirmary that will not only provide medical care to the residents of Namohana, but also to the surrounding villages. This will give almost 18,000 people access to first aid and medicines. With the cheerful reception, the villagers thanked us for the planned project.

We still need a small part of the required sum to start construction, but our stay has strengthened us all the more in our mission. We hope all the more that construction can begin soon.

If you want to learn more or support us, there is more information on our website www.help-mada.org.

By the way: 100% of the donations flow directly into the local projects!

Quiz question: How long does it take to harvest a vanilla bean?

23.09.2022

Quiz question: How long does it take to harvest a vanilla bean?

The answer to that is not that simple. It is clear that the cultivation and harvesting process takes a lot of time and effort. As we found out on our last trip to Madagascar on the trail of Bourbon #Vanilla, it takes sensitivity, patience and lots of hard-working hands. The vanilla plant initially needs about three years until it forms flowers. That's when it gets exciting: Only once a year does it open its flowers for a few hours and hand pollination can take place. When the pods are formed a few months after pollination, they can be picked. After a bath in hot water, drying processes follow several weeks of fermentation. In the morning the pods are laid out in the sun to dry and in the evening stored to “sweat”. The pods are then dried in storage rooms for two to three months. Only then is it sorted into different quality levels, depending on the vanilin content and moisture level. Depending on many factors, the quiz question cannot be answered unequivocally. What is certain is that there is a lot of manual work and effort behind the popular spice. Did you expect that? We, nutramaxx, buy our bourbon vanilla beans directly from the processor, who in turn buys the beans from the vanilla farmers at fair prices. We extract the pods and supply them to food manufacturers from a wide variety of sectors.

Small berry, big taste!

Small berry, big taste!

The juniper is well known to us in the production of #gin. Fresh from our taste laboratory, it is the essential oils of the berries in particular that are responsible for the round aroma in our organic juniper distillate. They ensure a pleasant and balanced taste profile: we are used to the sweet, flowery, spicy and pine-like notes from the delicious trendy drink.

But can you only make gin from juniper? Our juniper berry distillate can be found in a wide variety of drinks and other foods. How about an #organic juniper berry lemonade instead of gin?

For our juniper berry distillate we use organic juniper berries from European cultivation. These are macerated with alcohol before distillation, and the aromas described above are obtained during the subsequent, gentle vacuum distillation.

Wow, we're surprised!

We are used to special tastes, but we have rarely encountered such a special taste. We have been tinkering in our laboratory and today we present our Ashwagandha extract, which can be described as bitter and sweet, but also reminiscent of earthy, woody, herbal and slightly hay aromas. For the new flavor combination, we extracted whole, dried Ashwagandha roots in a solid-liquid extraction to get as many flavors as possible. The liquid was then carefully filtered before we gently concentrated the extract into a viscous extract in our vacuum rotary evaporator. Ashwagandha belongs to the nightshade family and is also known under the names sleeping berry, winter cherry or Indian ginseng. It is considered a medicinal plant in Ayurvedic medicine and means something like "smell of the horse". But don't worry: the grassy olfactory notes of the root dissipate during the production of our extract in the laboratory.

We do bitter! You too?

Fresh from our development lab, our #BIO angostura bark extract. Did you know that the name was derived from the city "Angostura", today Ciudad Bolivar, a city in Venezuela. "Angosturari bark" are the dried bark pieces with a strong, spicy, bitter taste of the angostura tree Cusparia trifoliata Engl. (Rubiaeae family) that grows wild in South America, especially on the banks of the Orinoco in Venezuela. The bark, mainly used for so-called Angostura bitters, contains aroma (1.5% essential oil with 14% calipol) and bitter substances (especially angosturine) and is mainly imported by the essence and spirits industry. We have developed an organic angosturari bark extract from this raw material, which is excellent for use in drinks to give them a bitter note. If you are interested in a sample or more information, just write to us at info@naturallymade.com!

Our Nutramaxx family has grown!

Our Nutramaxx family has grown!

Our youngest family member is our vacuum rotary evaporator from Heidolph Instruments GmbH & Co. KG, which helps us to distill and extract new natural raw materials. The rotation and heating of the flask in the heating bath produces steam that flows through the condenser. Condensation takes place and liquid enters the receiving flask. At the same time, the boiling temperature is reduced by applying a vacuum, which means that evaporation can take place at lower temperatures. This process is very helpful, especially with temperature-sensitive raw materials, as it is particularly gentle on the aroma. We already have a few attempts behind us. Clear favourite: our angostura bark extract, which adds a bitter note to drinks.

Vanilla harvest in Madagascar

07.08.2022

Vanilla harvest in Madagascar

The years 2021 and 2022 were particularly important for the vanilla harvest in Madagascar. Exports rose rapidly and reached a peak not reached in the last 20 years. Instead of the usual 1600-2000 tons per year, 3187 tons were achieved. In 2021, the Malagasy government set a minimum export price of 250 USD/kg, which will apply until 2023. To protect local workers, the minimum price a vanilla farmer receives for a kilo of green vanilla beans is 70,000 Ariary, which is about $17. The vanilla harvest in Madagascar is currently satisfactory with a vanillin content of 1.6-2%; the quality of the harvest will not change for the time being. However, the Malagasy currency is still very weak and the development of the USD and EUR will lead to further devaluation.
