In Good Taste
Flavor carryover is the transfer of flavors from one filling process to the next. Despite cleaning measures and adapted production plans, small traces of aroma can remain in the bottling machines, which can then be absorbed by the next beverage. This danger should not be underestimated, especially when intense flavorings are used.
The consequences of flavor carryover are product rejects, unintentional downtime, additional inspections and complaints. In the worst case, it can even lead to recalls, closures and fines.
