DDW’s cloudy paprika is stable in typical beverage formulations and can be applied in enhanced waters, juice drinks, iced teas, and novelty sparkling drinks. Paprika oleoresin offers an orange alternative to cochineal extract and FD&C Yellow 6. The liquid emulsion disperses easily in beverages and demonstrates improved performance compared to orange beta-carotene powder. DDW is able to custom blend with other natural colorings to arrive at a customer’s target hue.
“We developed the EmulsiTech™ paprika in response to customer demands for a cloudy, liquid orange color with no ringing and no bottle or cap staining,” said Jody Renner-Nantz, Applications Manager. “It also complements the clear paprika version that we launched in 2016,” she added.
DDW produces a full portfolio of EmulsiTech™ color emulsions at its manufacturing site for natural coloring in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. The plant, which opened in 2015, is adjacent to the DDW Global Support Center. At a future date, the new product will also be available at the company’s natural color facility in County Cork, Ireland.
