Medicinal Flavour Standard


The “Medicinal Flavour Standard” denotes a medicinal-like off flavour in beverages imparted via poor cleaning in process (CIP) systems. The medicinal flavour is caused when the cleaning agents run through beverage processing systems, as they are not effectively removed via rinsing. When this residue comes in contact with raw water, raw materials, and finished products, the residual cleaning agent will impart medicinal-like flavours to the final product.
