What Is Drink Formulation?
So, you have an idea for a new beverage you know consumers will enjoy. You’ve penned the concept, researched the market and beverage industry, and maybe even secured your source of funding. But how do you turn your beverage concept into a real product people can purchase in stores? It’s time to develop your formula with a formulation expert.
Formulation is a part of the beverage development process that involves converting an idea for a drink into a replicable recipe. Developing a recipe will dial in your drink’s flavor profile by establishing the ingredients and steps necessary for its production. A recipe will enable your co-packer to produce a consistent product from batch to batch.
Our Formulation Process
When you choose MyDrink as your beverage formulation company, we’ll start with an initial consultation. During this discussion, we’ll learn the vision you have for your drink and begin brainstorming ways to make it a reality. Our experts will provide logistical insights regarding relative costs, ingredient availability from raw material suppliers, shelf life considerations and more.
After your consultation, we’ll move your project into development and prototyping. During this time, we’ll collaborate with our flavor partners to establish a baseline taste for your drink. Then, we’ll assess the drink’s stability by analyzing the ingredients for solubility and compatibility. The development and prototyping processes create the ideal sensory profile and establish the details needed for efficient large-scale replication.
As your dedicated formulation partners, we’ll keep working on your beverage composition until you decide it’s perfect. Then, you’ll have a complete formula that’s ready to produce at scale.
