The global $20 billion market for sauces, dressings and condiments will continue growing at 3% annually, according to Euromonitor International. Category growth will continue in ready meals, meal kits and prepared foods. Sauces and gravies usually contain water soluble (or dispersible) colouring, such as caramel colour or paprika, to enhance savory appearance. Marinades enhance visual appeal, as well as improve the flavor and texture of meat and vegetables.
Caramelized flavors are a growing trend in all types of sauce bases. They are often accompanied by actual caramelized pieces of fruits and vegetables.
Because salad dressings are a balance between water and oil systems, solubility requirements determine DDW’s colouring selection. If the dressing manufacturer does not prepare their own emulsions, DDW offers oil soluble products.
