au naturel! lets replace caramel...

May 9, 2019

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.
