MINTACT® solution ideas
Expressing the fine aroma of natural mint oils to support the replacement of natural ingredients
MINTACT® is a brand made possible only by Takasago's wide-ranging knowledge of mint and flavor creation technology. By expressing the fine aroma of natural mint oils, it can substitute for natural raw materials and reduce their usage, contributing to cost reductions and stable supply. Within the MINTACT® line up, the peppermint type uses l-Menthol produced through asymmetric synthesis, a method Takasago was the first in the world to commercialize. Takasago’s l-Menthol is manufactured in a green process that uses 100% bio-based, renewable ingredients. It has received certification as a 100% bio-based BioPreferred® product by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
