Class IV caramel colours (E150d) result from the controlled heating of carbohydrate ingredients such as corn, wheat, and sugar, with food grade ammonium and sulphite compounds. The resulting colour ranges from a light brown to deep black-browns. This colour is widely used in the soft drink industry due to its low dosage requirements and for its excellent acid stability. Class IV colours exhibit a strong negative charge throughout all food applications. DDW offers single strength, double strength, and low 4-MeI Class IV caramel colours.
