Caramel Colors strength is defined as its Tinctorial Power, KO.56. Tinctorial power is the absorbance of a 0.1% weight / volume solution. It is measured through a 1 cm light path at a wavelength of 560 nanometers (nm). The weight/ volume is measured using a high quality spectrophotometer. Higher the value of the absorbance, darker is the Caramel Color.
Color tone is also an important factor. The color tone is defined by the Hue Index that is the measurement of the color hue or red characteristics of the Caramel Color, a function of the absorbance at 510 and 610 nm. As a fact, the higher the Tinctorial Power, lower will be the Hue Index and the lower will be the red tones.
Most of the caramel color that we use are anionic i.e. its molecules are negatively charged. But in certain applications, beer and meat products, it is required to have a cationic i.e. positively charged. This happens due to the proteins found in these products.
Sulfite ConsiderationsCaramel color usually contain sulfites because it is produced by using sulfite reactants. Since the percentage of the sulfite is very low, it is taken into account of consideration while complying to the FDA regulations. Positively charged caramel color is also produced. In its production process, sulfite is not used. We have developed such caramel color that helps the food manufacturers to keep sulfite content low in their products.
Caramel Color is known for its excellent microbiological stability. It is attributed to the high processing temperatures, high specific gravity, high acidity and high osmotic pressure of the products.
