au naturel! lets replace caramel...

The demand for clean label colouring agents has risen greatly over the recent years as consumers become more and more conscious of what they are consuming. As a global leader in both innovation and clean label ingredients we are able to offer the world the alternative natural colouring agent for both E150 and malt extract.

Herbarom™ is a unique ingredient that offers natural colouring for both food and beverage products.

The intense brown colour Herbarom™ offers is due to its natural content of polyphenols which are a highly abundant micronutrient with anti-oxidative properties and play a an important role in reducing the progression of diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disease.

We are able to standardise the levels of polyphenols in our range of Herbarom™ products to cater for the varying colour and sweeteness needs of our customers.
