Pepsi To Add Yuzu To Its Drink
« on: March 19, 2019, 03:29:26 PM »
Pepsi, through its partnership with local distributor Suntory, has also offered special flavors just for Japan. Now, this spring, Pepsi Japan is set to roll out its newest creation, featuring one of Japanís most delicious and refreshing traditional seasonings. Pepsi was impressed at how many Japanese desserts manage to provide a burst of sweetness that seamlessly transitions into a clean, crisp finish, and one way they do this is with yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit.

Yuzuís flavor falls somewhere between an orange and a lemon, sharper than former but not as intrusive as the later. While the fruit is rarely eaten directly, itís popular flavoring for cakes, dumplings, and sweet bean jams, and now Pepsi is promising a crisp, satisfying yuzu aftertaste for Pepsi Japan Cola.

It's not so strange. One of the main flavor ingredients in Coca Cola formula is a special type of lime oil imported from India.
