About us

Our expertise

A unique extraction technology

Based on an infusion process, Rouages’ unique technology allows us to obtain extracts without chemical solvents and without evaporation phase while preserving the true aromatic richness of the fresh plant, spices and fruits.

This innovative process guarantees that our infusions retain the full aromatic spectrum (taste and smell) of the raw materials used.

Simple, specific or complex infusion, our process allows to extract from a raw material a specific aromatic profile or to combine within the same infusion the aromatic compounds of different raw materials.

In addition to this technical know-how of extraction and balancing of flavors, our knowledge of food matrices allows us to develop natural, additive-free and healthy finished products.

With this expertise, the Rouages team will help you find the best solutions for all your projects.


Complementary know-how

Lactic fermentation

In parallel to its infusion technology, Rouages has developed a mastery of lactic fermentation allowing it to develop fermented health drinks and other fermented food matrices for its own account or that of its clients.

Rouages proposes its own creations but also adapts to any specific request of the customer.

Membrane processes

Rouages completes its technological expertise with a know-how of filtration and ultrafiltration by membranes allowing to concentrate the aromatic extracts.

A complementary asset to imagine unique intense products.

Formulation of beverages and food ingredients

Our extraction and lactic fermentation technology is complemented by our knowledge of food matrices and our know-how in balancing flavors.
