With Sethness Caramel Color, you get more versatility than you ever imagined


Caramel Color has been in existence since the 1800's and has become the world's most widely used food colorant. It can be found in virtually every segment of the food industry. Applications include colas, teas, spirits, soups, cereal, soy sauces, barbeque sauces, baked goods, spices, coatings, and pet foods.

Color Hue & Strength Versatility

Caramel Color can provide an endless range of colors in your foods, including light yellows, reddish-browns, rich browns and even black. It often presents an alternative to using certified or other colors that can be finicky in your food system. For example, it is commonly used to extend Annatto and Beta Carotene.

Application Versatility

While most commonly used in carbonated beverages, Sethness Caramel Color has found application in virtually every segment of the food industry. It is an exceptionally stable coloring agent, tolerant of a wide range of physical and chemical environments found in food. Caramel Color has good functionality across a wide range of pH...from 2 to 10.

With powdered Caramel Color, coloring dry-blended systems becomes easy. Sethness Spray Dried Caramel Color features uniform particle characteristics and excellent dispersability. It has proven to be an effective, practical coloring agent in all types of dry packed foods, including instant beverages, spices, coatings, meat rubs and gravy mixes.

Handling Versatility

Inherently stable, Caramel Color is exceptionally easy to handle and store. Given proper storage conditions, Sethness guarantees its Caramel Color for a minimum of two years on most liquids and three years on powders.

Caramel Color has excellent microbiological stability. Since it is produced under conditions of high heat and pressure, Sethness Caramel Color is essentially commercially sterile. It will not support microbiological growth in its undiluted form.

Economic Versatility

With all of its functional advantages, Sethness Caramel Color remains one of the lowest cost coloring alternatives you can choose. Combine this with low application levels, and you get economics that can't be matched by almost any other natural or artificial color.

Plus, a "Label-Friendly" Nature

In this age of consumer concerns, a label can make or break a product. The last thing you need is a label that shouts "chemical" or "artificial". The advantage of using Sethness Caramel Color is that it can be labeled simply as "Caramel Color" or "Caramel"...a much more acceptable label declaration than most other coloring systems.

Sethness Caramel Color is certified Kosher and Pareve by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, and certified Halal by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America. Caramel Color has also been listed as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
