 MELVILLE, N.Y. — Nut flavorings from Comax Flavors may help food manufacturers save on costs, according to the company. Peanut flavors and pecan flavors may be used in such applications as baked foods, confectionery items, beverages and dairy products.

Comax Flavors offers the peanut flavors and pecan flavors as natural or artificial, oil-soluble or water-soluble, and with varieties containing the named ingredient as well as those that are allergen-free.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Oct. 12 estimated 2011 U.S. peanut production at 3,628 million lbs, down 13% from 4,157 million lbs last year. Peanut butter manufacturers have announced price increases this year because of the rising cost of peanuts.
