 ScentSational Technologies, LLC Announces Partnership with the NASA Food Technology Commercial Space Center

 Jenkintown, Pennsylvania: ScentSational Technologies, LLC announces its acceptance as a Commercial Partner of the NASA Food Technology Commercial Space Center (FTCSC) program.  At the request of NASA FTCSC, ScentSational has agreed to explore ways to apply CompelAroma®, ScentSational?s patented Encapsulated Aroma Release® technologies to NASA food and packaging material suppliers to enhance space food products? flavor, aroma, and taste.

CompelAroma technology encapsulates specially engineered FDA approved food grade flavors within the structure of plastic packaging components at the time of manufacturing. The result is a more aromatic and better tasting foods and beverages.  CompelAroma offers an enhanced consumer experience of the contents without additives; including fats, sugars, calories or carbohydrates.  CompelAroma?s may be released at package opening, product preparation, and consumption. Since aroma is a key factor in the enjoyment of foods and beverages, and since food designed for ease of eating in space sometimes requires compromises it taste, it is anticipated that CompelAroma will benefit the astronaut?s experience.

ScentSational Technologies may hold the key to making many nutritional meals more pleasurable, thus encouraging good nutrition and enhancing the quality of life in space.?
