Caramel colours are among the most widely used food ingredients, which work as an emulsifying agent as well as a colorant. Caramel colors are one of the most versatile and stable food colours. The unique properties of this color make it a preferred choice in many of today's food products. Our years of experience in this industry has made us capable to guide our clients in selecting the correct caramel food color for their formulation.
In the global market, we are known for our superior quality caramel food color that gives comprehensive range of end colors to ones foods. The color which we provide range from light yellow to reddish brown and to the darkest brown. Though we provide these caramel food colors, but the result always depends on the usage level of the caramel color.
One of the most important features of the caramel is that it is easy to handle and store because of its inherent chemical properties. The chemical composition of the caramel food color is such that it retains its microbiological stability for longer periods provided it is stored in proper packings. Since we follow the international production process approved by the US FDA and European countries, our colors comply with the international quality standards.
Being the most versatile food ingredients and colorants, caramel colours are considered to be the most economical alternatives as compared to almost any other natural or artificial food colors and additives for the food & beverages industry. Because of its low application levels, it is cost benefit also.
We offer a complete range of caramel colours that serve almost every segment of the food & beverages industry. Different applications and usages of caramel food colours in given below:
Caramel Colours strength is defined as its Tinctorial Power, KO.56. Tinctorial power is the absorbance of a 0.1% weight / volume solution. It is measured through a 1 cm light path at a wavelength of 560 nanometers (nm). The weight/ volume is measured using a high quality spectrophotometer. Higher the value of the absorbance, darker is the Caramel Color.
Color tone is also an important factor. The colour tone is defined by the Hue Index that is the measurement of the colour hue or red characteristics of the Caramel Colour, a function of the absorbance at 510 and 610 nm. As a fact, the higher the Tinctorial Power, lower will be the Hue Index and the lower will be the red tones.
The specific gravity of our caramel colour ranges from 1.25 - 1.38 pounds/ gallon that corresponds to a range of about 10.4 - 11.5 pounds/gallon. The corresponding dry substance content of the liquid caramel color ranges from 50% - 70%.
Most of the caramel colour that we use are anionic i.e. its molecules are negatively charged. But in certain applications, beer and meat products, it is required to have a cationic i.e. positively charged. This happens due to the proteins found in these products.
Caramel colour usually contain sulfites because it is produced by using sulfite reactants. Since the percentage of the sulfite is very low, it is taken into account of consideration while complying to the FDA regulations. Positively charged caramel color is also produced. In its production process, sulfite is not used. We have developed such caramel color that helps the food manufacturers to keep sulfite content low in their products.
Caramel Colour In High Alcohol or High Salt Systems
Certain products are very stable in concentrated high salt or high alcohol. In these products caramel colours are required. Our caramel color is available with these properties.
The viscosity of caramel colour varies. Hence, it should be confirmed that the viscosity of the caramel color is not a reflection of its color strength. Lower viscosity is easier to handle, dissolves faster, has greater stability and longer shelf life.
Caramel Colour is known for its excellent microbiological stability. It is attributed to the high processing temperatures, high specific gravity, high acidity and high osmotic pressure of the products.
