Taste and Design: Blending herbs to get good taste
The Wise Herb Company portfolio of products have complicated mixtures of herbs and spices. Complicated, not just in functionality, their physical appearance and form, but also in taste profile.
There are many important factors to designing a product that people want to eat or drink. Two things worth mentioning here are HEALTH FUNCTIONALITY and TASTE.
The objective of our R&D department was to design a product that can help with health functionality but also taste good at the same time. Ayurvedic doctors help to get the proportions right for health functionality. This is where art and science meet to get the proportions of herbs and spices just right. We talk in depth about the health and scientific functionality but the products have to taste good too. We believe our R&D department and the doctors have done a great job but you have to make your own mind about that…
