New Orange and Yellow Liquid Color Emulsions Deliver Clarity in Beverages

June 14, 2016

D.D. Williamson adds two new colors to its EmulsiTech line of clear liquid color emulsions.

Colorants firm D.D. Williamson (DDW; Louisville, KY) has added two new colors to its EmulsiTech line of clear liquid color emulsions. The new clear yellow and clear orange emulsions, derived from beta-carotene and paprika, respectively, are appropriate for use in beverages, fruit spreads, hard candy, and other food products.

In addition to being free from synthetic emulsifiers and stable in heat and light, DDW believes its two new color emulsions are “the first commercially available products with a natural emulsifier system to achieve visual clarity in beverages,” said Jason Armao, senior vice president of science and innovation at DDW, in an announcement.

Both of the new color emulsions are stable in acid and produce no ringing in solution. And while there are currently paprika and beta-carotene–based liquid color emulsions on the market, most of them are cloudy in solution, Campbell Barnum, vice president of DDW, told Nutritional Outlook.

“We believe the recent DDW innovations are unique for achieving clarity and a natural emulsifier system,” said Barnum.

Barnum added that in beverages in particular, the new orange and yellow emulsions are suitable for waters, juice drinks, energy drinks, and sports drinks.

DDW will be showcasing the new emulsions at the upcoming Institute of Food Technologists’ Annual Meeting & Food Expo (IFT 16), at booth #1809.
