So, what is beverage formulation? Put simply, it’s the process of developing the recipe and formula for a beverage. This includes selecting the type of base material, flavorings, sweeteners, and other ingredients that will go into the drink. It also involves determining the quantity of each ingredient, as well as the pH and other physical characteristics of the beverage.

Creating a beverage formula is no easy task. Here are the steps you’ll need to take to get started:
1. Select Your Base Material: Decide what type of base material will be used in your beverage. This could be a juice, tea, carbonated water, beer, or any other liquid.
2. Select Flavors: Choose the flavor profile you’d like for your beverage. This could be a single flavor or a combination of flavors.
3. Choose Sweeteners: Decide what type of sweetener you’d like to use in your beverage. This could be sugar, honey, stevia, or any other sweetener.
4. Select Other Ingredients: Determine what other ingredients you’d like to include in your beverage, such as vitamins, minerals, or herbs.
5. Determine Quantities: Calculate the amount of each ingredient you’ll need to use in order to achieve the desired flavor and physical characteristics.
