Additionally, the EU regulation EC 110/2008 defines “Burned Sugar” (instead of “Burnt Sugar”) specifically as an ingredient option for spirits or alcoholic drinks. For this particular application, “Burned Sugar” is the product obtained exclusively from the controlled heating of sucrose — without bases, mineral acids or other chemical additives.
DDW’s Burnt Sugars are Kosher, Halal, and Non-GM and can be used in place of caramel colour or synthetic brown blends in many food and beverage applications. Typical applications include bakery, confections, dairy, beverages, sauces, extruded snacks, and cereals.
Specialty Dark Burnt Sugars
DDW Specialty Dark Burnt Sugars 784 & 674 have a standardised red-brown hue that is two to three times darker than conventional Class I (Plain) Caramel Colours and other burnt sugars. Therefore, a one-to-one replacement of Class III and some single-strength Class IV Caramel Colours is possible in applications such as bakery and confections. These ingredients are approximately half the cost-in-use of traditional Class I Caramel Colours, closing the gap between simplicity and darkness. These Specialty Dark ingredients can be labeled simply as “burnt sugar.”
