DDW is proud to offer an innovative new oil dispersible technology suitable for use in a variety of bakery, snack and cereal applications:
DDW – The Colour House – provides an oil dispersible technology that can be used in sanding and decorative sugars for bakery, snack and cereal applications. DDW’s oil dispersible technology plates easily and consistently on sugar for a uniform appearance and allows for even distribution in dry blends.

Due to particle size, oil dispersible technology cannot be plated directly onto maltodextrin or powdered sugar. As DDW’s Jennifer Brown explains in the above video, the oil dispersible technology “must be added to the fat first and then added to the maltodextrin or powdered sugar.”
DDW’s oil dispersible coloring can be added to compound coatings at a low dosage (less than 0.5%) to achieve pastel colors without modifying the viscosity. To achieve more vibrant hues without increasing viscosity, the oil dispersible coloring can first be added to hard fat (up to 20% color) and then the colored fat can be added to the compound coating.
Traditionally, buttercream icing is a mix of hard fat and powdered sugar. Oil dispersible color by DDW – The Color House – can be added to the fat and processed traditionally for beautiful buttercream colors.
Inclusions in cereal or bars may show a rainbow of natural coloring. Time and temperature factors often determine the best solution for the process.
