February 2014: Ingredient Briefs

Powdered caramel color

Sethness Products Co. says its P600 low-sulfite, powdered caramel color is 30% darker than its darkest low-sulfite, powdered caramel color (P450). It’s positively charged with no sulfite reactants and is greater in strength, requiring lower usage levels and less inventory, the company reports. Label-friendly, it also offers greater color intensity, while helping food formulators to stay below the FDA labeling sulfite threshold of 10 ppm. P600 can be used in a variety of applications, including baked goods, cocoa extenders, spice blends and cereals.

The naturally based, gluten-free solution will enable food manufacturers to create a range of on-trend weight-management products that will assist people with calorie reduction, according to the company.
