Blends of herbs and spices need colour to help define the flavor for consumers. Examples include tandoori, curry, Cajun and chili. Paprika and turmeric contribute both flavor and colour to a seasoning blend. Food companies may label these either as a flavoring or a colouring. Added colouring helps to ensure consistency from batch to batch.
Instant noodle seasoning is found in flavor packets accompanying dried, pre-cooked, ramen noodles. This sector demands large quantities of powdered, Class III or IV caramel colour, turmeric and beta-carotene on all continents, especially Asia. Packets of fish or poultry flavoring may contain Class I caramel colour for a yellow-brown hue.
Meat Seasoning / Rubs
A dry meat rub - added to the surface of meat or poultry prior to cooking - offers advantages over a (wet) marinade. Benefits include longer shelf life, ease of use, and less chance of burning during the cooking process.
