Only the best for your health
We all are more and more aware about our health and how our habits of consumption can influence it. That is why we tend to prefer preservative-free beverages and foods and minimally processed products. Also, we are more careful when it comes to choose food labels and ingredients’ contents, consciously tracking down additive-free food or labels stating the naturalness of their ingredients.
Backward integration is our strength at Diana’s Food, and you can trust us to make it your competitive advantage:
By securing all the supply chain,
Insuring full traceability of every raw material,
Controlling the entire value chain,
Screening for original varieties to develop unique strains,
Selecting the most sustainable partners and producers,
And integrating a unique program to assess and guarantee farmers’ best practices in our processes
This how we became world leader in coloring foods and a globally renowned expert in natural products. Our coverage of existing colors is extended for beverages, sweets and ready meals, available in liquid or powder form.
CleanColors™, only the best range of coloring foods
Over the last decade, as natural colors were exploding, Coloring Foods, a clean alternative for color, has conquered the market. Because it is made from vegetable extracts and fruit juices, Coloring Foods is a very simple to understand and clean coloring source, giving the most natural image to the finished product. With Clean Colors™, we, at Diana Food, propose an extended range of high-performance Coloring Foods for natural and tailor-made solutions, based on our great expertise in agronomy and processing skills. Clean Colors™ meet the EU guidance notes while answering the fast-growing demand for clean label solutions and transparent ingredients.
Carmine is not the only natural source of red!
Because the use of cochineal carmine is a growing global issue, Diana Food offers a natural alternative. Extracted from a tiny insect mainly grown in Latin America for its powerful ability to color food in red, carmine can provoke serious allergies or not suitable for vegetable diet. There is a global pressure to remove cochineal carmine from food and beverages. In response to this, Diana Food has developed a range of specific coloring solutions based on pigments from natural raw materials.
Safflower: boost yellow tones in your beverage applications!
Diana's safflower extracts are the ideal product for every beverages application. In liquid form, they will perfectly fit into carbonated soft drinks, juice drinks, milk drinks or flavored water solutions. The powder form is perfect for any powdered soft drink.
Standardized in pigments content, they give a bright yellow shade and clear aspect, while ensuring excellent stability overtime. Their composition prevents any precipitation or color fading from happening in the final product.
> A smooth and integrated process
Flowers are carefully selected and go through a strict quality check before the raw material can be approved. For more than 15 years, the flowers have been processed in one of our French production sites, located in Cossé-le-Vivien (France). Thanks to a slow in-house infusion process, the pigments can then be released from flowers and express the best of their color properties.
> Clean Label ensuring perfect consumer acceptance
Consumer acceptance is key for colors. Processed without selective extraction, our safflower extracts meet the requirements for "Colouring Foods". Therefore, they are not labeled as food colors but as ingredients from fruit, vegetable or plant source. They allow a clean label which consumers can easily understand, such as "Safflower Extract Concentrate" for example.
A range of yellow and orange emulsions
Adding to their core strengths in anthocyanins and betanins, Diana Food is broadening its portfolio with yellow and orange emulsions. Through use of innovative emulsion systems, Diana Food can now make oil soluble pigments water dispersible.
> Beta Carotenes: The optimal choice for palm free, stable, cloudy orange beverages.
> Curcumins and Lutein: Ideal for both savory, bakery, dairy and confectionery applications
> Paprika: The traditional choice for savory and confectionery applications
Diana Food also offers a range of high impact, low flavor coloring food options for clean label products based on red bell pepper, pumpkin, orange and yellow carrot.
Need to replace Caramel E150d in your recipe?
There have been numerous studies regarding sulphite ammonia caramels (E 150d, Class IV) and their potential impact on consumer health. The International Centre for Cancer Research has highlighted potential carcinogens in these products. This has impacted the full range of caramels in the eyes of the consumer and the food industry is quickly turning to alternative brown colorants in all applications.
In response to this demand, Diana Food has launched a sustainable solution based on purple carrot, hibiscus and malt concentrates. This can be used not only to replace caramel E150d in beverages but also other applications such as yogurt and confectionery. Integrated in the 'cleancolors' coloring food range, this natural alternative enables manufacturers to produce a healthier product with labeling that is clear and understandable to all consumers.
That's not at all!
Organic food is more than just a trend. It is increasingly becoming an important lifestyle choice. At Diana we are launching a range of organic colouring solutions. These are specifically designed to provide bright, stable shades in targeted applications such as dairy, confectionery and beverage.
Furthermore, each blend will be certified according to EU Regulation on organic production and US National Organic Program.
Please contact us to be the first to hear about this exciting new range when it launches in late 2018.
