Supplier Innovations and News New orange colorant to benefit beverage market Consumers are demanding natural ingredients in the products they consume. Within the beverage industry, many manufacturers are responding by removing artificial colors, but costs and stability issues may create barriers against the change. With the launch of the CapColors Orange 057 WSS colorant, Chr. Hansen, Hørsholm, Denmark, now offers an affordable and high performing encapsulated betacarotene product for beverage manufacturers. The orange shade constitutes one of the largest color segments in the beverage industry, and it is an essential attribute in juices, nectars and carbonated soft drinks. With beta-carotene being the most common non-artificial orange color, it is also a shade that poses a range of challenges in the form of added costs, compromised product performance and application complexity. Typical issues when using non-artificial color emulsions in the final application are color shifting and the appearance of neck ringing, and in production, poor dispersion and dissolving are common issues. The new CapColors Orange colorant solves these issues using its encapsulation technology, which makes the product robust to light, heat and ringing, while dispersing and dissolving quickly due to its easy-to-use liquid form. Visit: Fibersol helps hit sugar-reduction targets Product developers reformulate many foods and beverages to reduce sugar and calories. Related to this, Fibersol, a joint venture between Archer Daniels Midland Co., Chicago, and Matsutani America, Itasca, Ill., offers a family of soluble corn fiber ingredients. The line of ingredients delivers many of sugar's critical baking functions and also improves product qualities like texture, taste and shelf life, while reducing sugar's calories and boosting fiber, according to the company. Fibersol-HS boasts a honeylike sweetness with approximately half of honey's calories. The highly concentrated Fibersol-2 may stand in for sugar's bulk and contributes just 1.6 calories/gram. And easy-to-use Fibersol-LQ liquid not only replaces sugar, it also adds humectancy to bakery formulations, improving texture and shelf life. At 75% soluble fiber on a dry-weight basis, it also may turn a sweet treat into a substantial source of this "nutrient of concern." "We want manufacturers to know there is an easy way to reduce sugar and calories while adding fiber," said Kati Ledbetter, product development scientist, ADM. "Fibersol-2 can be used to replace sugar and provide a crisper texture that can help extend shelf life. Additionally, with the use of Fibersol-2, a bakery product can maintain a taste and sweetness profile that consumers will love."
