Döhler files patent for innovative carotenoid-based “Crystal Clear Colours”

Stability, taste neutrality and bright colours – that's what Doehler's “Crystal Clear Colours” stand for. With its new range of brilliant, crystal clear “warm orange” and “shining yellow” hues, Doehler is opening up innovative potential for the beverage industry. For the first time, “Crystal Clear Colours” allow the use of colours with neutral taste profile in clear beverages, without adding any artificial colours. In addition “Crystal Clear Colours” are characterised by outstanding stability under the influence of light, heat and various pH values. With “Crystal Clear Colours” Doehler has achieved a breakthrough in the development of carotenoidbased colours for clear beverages. Their outstanding properties make the “Crystal Clear Colours” ideal for a wide range of beverage applications. They offer an excellent opportunity to distinguish beverages from other products in the beverage aisle, especially in the still drink and water plus segment. “Crystal Clear Colours” allow clear beverages to shine with a colour spectrum ranging from strong, warm orange hues to bright, sunny yellows.

As a globally active manufacturer of natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry, Doehler also offers colouring concentrates, natural colours and colouring emulsions for premium foods and beverages alongside its “Crystal Clear Colours”.
