Beverages are a natural companion to food, and include a wide range of formulations including carbonated and still soft drinks, sports and energy drinks, functional and flavoured waters, juice cocktails and smoothies, alcoholic beverages and mixers, ready-to-drink coffees and teas, and dry mix powdered products.

Attributes such as viscosity, mouthfeel, particle suspension, clarity or cloudiness, and flavour release are crucial to consumer satisfaction. These different qualities can be easily achieved with specific hydrocolloids, functional systems, lecithin, and modified starches.
