NaturBrown™ Ingredients

DDW’s NaturBrown™ products were developed in response to consumer demand for brown ingredients with a simple label. These ingredients are manufactured from 100% natural sources and have the optimal balance of stability, flavor, and color. NaturBrown™ products are Kosher, Halal, and Non-GM. They do not contain 4-MeI and can be used in place of caramel color or FD&C brown blends in many food and beverage applications. Typical applications include bakery, confections, dairy, beverages, gravy, seasonings, soups, sauces, extruded snacks and cereals, and pet food.

NaturBrown™ Fruits & Vegetables

NaturBrown™ fruits and vegetables are created through a simple cooking process from 100% fruit and vegetable juice concentrates and are standardized for color. Each contributes a unique flavor with consistent color and excellent heat, light, and pH stability. They range in hues from light golden-brown to dark red-brown. For sweet applications, options include Apple, Pear, and Pumpkin. For savory applications, options include Onion, Garlic, Mirepoix, Savory Vegetables, and Tomato. Certified Organic Onion will be available in 2017. In Europe, these ingredients may be considered “colouring foods” (no E numbers).

Other NaturBrown™ Ingredients

DDW NaturBrown™ 830 liquid and 630 powder are alternatives to caramel color that contribute a light sweet flavor with a standardized red-brown hue. Additionally, DDW NaturBrown™ Specialty Dark ingredients have a standardized red-brown hue that is two to three times darker than conventional Class I (Plain) Caramel Colors. Therefore, a one-to-one replacement of Class III and some single-strength Class IV Caramel Colors is possible in applications such as bakery and confections. These ingredients are approximately half the cost-in-use of traditional Class I Caramel Colors, closing the agap between simplicity and darkness. These ingredients meet the FDA standard of identity for “natural flavor."
