    FLAVORING DESCRIPTION

    Flavorings are intense preparations which are added to foods in order to impart taste and/or smell. These food flavors are used in small amounts and are not intended to be consumed alone. There are certain natural food flavors which are derived from herbs, spices and substances having an exclusively sweet, sour or salt taste. These natural food flavors are not included in the definition of flavorings for regulatory purposes.

    TYPES OF FOOD FLAVORING

    Flavorings are used as food additives for altering and/or enhancing the flavors of natural food products. Sometimes, food flavorings are also used to create flavor for food products that do not have desired flavors such as candies and other snacks. There are three major types of food flavorings that are used in foods. These types of flavorings are mostly used as criteria for food regulatory purposes in European Union and Australia. In North America, the classification of flavorings is done as - Natural flavorings and Synthetic flavorings. The Synthetic flavorings there include both artificial and nature-identical flavourings.

    NATURAL FLAVORING SUBSTANCES: Flavoring substances that are obtained from plant or animal raw materials, by physical, microbiological or enzymatic processes are classified as natural flavoring substances. These natural flavorings can be either used in their natural form or processed form for consumption by human beings. However, they cannot contain any nature-identical or artificial flavoring substances.

    NATURE-IDENTICAL FLAVORING SUBSTANCES: Nature-identical substances are the flavoring substances that are obtained by synthesis or are isolated through chemical processes, which are chemically identical to flavoring substances naturally present in products intended for consumption by human beings. These flavorings cannot contain any artificial flavoring substances.

    ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING SUBSTANCES: Flavoring substances that are not identified in a natural product intended for consumption by human being- whether or not the product is processed- are artificial flavoring substances. These food flavorings are typically produced by fractional distillation and additional chemical manipulation naturally sourced chemicals or from crude oil or coal tar.

    SMOKE FLAVORING SUBSTANCES: Although it is not one of the basic flavorings, smoke flavoring has come up as a significant food flavoring substance in the world of food additives. Smoke flavoring is a natural flavoring concentrate obtained by subjecting untreated and uncontaminated hardwood, including sawdust and woody plants, to one or more of these listed processes for obtaining fractions which have the desired flavor potential.
    • Controlled burning.
    • Dry distillation at appropriate temperatures.
    • Treatment with superheated steam.
    As per the above classification, we get three types of flavorings - natural flavorings, nature identical flavoring and artificial flavoring. There is also a difference for regulation of natural food flavoring in the US and EU that can be made clear by the definitions provided by the food laws of both the regions.

    REGULATORY DEFINITIONS OF NATURAL FLAVORING

    The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations defines a "Natural Flavorant" as "the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or any other edible portions of a plant, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose primary function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional."

    The UK Food Law defines a natural flavor as "a flavoring substance (or flavoring substances) which is (or are) obtained, by physical, enzymatic or microbiological processes, from material of vegetable or animal origin which material is either raw or has been subjected to a process normally used in preparing food for human consumption and to no process other than one normally so used."

    BASIC FOOD FLAVORS

    There are three basic parameters based on which all food flavorings are made. These three components of food flavors are- smell, taste and color.

    FLAVORING SMELL

    Making of flavoring smells or odors are similar to the making process of industrial fragrances and perfumes. To make natural flavors with desired smell, the flavorant is extracted from the source substance through various methods like solvent extraction, distillation, or using force to squeeze it out. These extracts are then further purified and added to food products in order to give them a particular flavor. To make artificial flavors, the individual naturally occurring aroma chemicals are identified and then mixed to produce a desired flavor. These mixtures are formulated by flavor chemist or flavorist to give a food product a unique flavor and to maintain flavor consistency between different product batches or after recipe changes.

    FLAVORING TASTES

    There are four basic tastes known to human beings - sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. The substances that enhance umami and other secondary flavors are considered to be taste flavorants. The dictionary defines umami as - "a taste that is characteristic of monosodium glutamate and is associated with meats and other high-protein foods. It is sometimes considered to be a fifth basic taste along with sweet, sour, salty, and bitter." Therefore flavoring tastes can be identified with flavor enhancers that are largely based on amino acids and nucleotides and are typically used as sodium or calcium salts. Some of the Umami flavorants recognized and approved by the European Union include:
    • Glutamic Acid Salts
    • Glycine Salts
    • Guanylic Acid Salts
    • Nucleotide Salts
    • Inosinic Acid Salts
    • 5'-Ribonucleotide Salts

    FLAVORING COLORS

    The color of food also affect its flavor. Therefore, food flavor suppliers have all kinds of flavoring colors with them. Food colorings are derived from natural sources as well as from chemicals. The flavoring color additive regulations around the world are different from each other. Certain food colors that are permitted to be used in Europe or Asia may not be acceptable in the United States and vice versa.

    COLORING DESCRIPTIONS

    A Roman saying goes that people "eat with their eyes" as much as with their palates. Saffron and other spices were often used to provide a rich yellow color to various foods even in the ancient civilizations. Let alone children, even adults are attracted towards colored food.

    WHAT ARE FOOD COLOR ADDITIVES? Technically speaking, a color additive is any dye, pigment or substance that can impart color when added or applied to a food, drug, cosmetic or to human body. Food colors are used in virtually every food product, be it dairy, confectionery, beverages, bakery and even cereals.

    FOOD COLORING TYPES & CERTIFICATION

    Food colors used today are both synthetic and natural. Natural food colors for industrial or domestic use do not need any certification but the synthetic ones have to be certified for their safety standards by organizations like FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in United States of America. E.C. Marked colors are certified by the European Community. They have their own testing methods and numbering systems. The "approval" process or color additive certification, assures safety, quality, consistency and strength of the color additive prior to its use in foods.

    Irrespective of the source that is natural or synthetic, colors have to be certified for their safety to be added to any food. Usually for the commercial purposes, artificial colors are preferred as they are more stable, provide better color uniformity and blend together easily. Certifiable color additives generally do not impart undesirable flavors to foods, while color derived from foods can produce such effects. The amount of color used in a particular food also has to be regulated and this regulation is known as Good Manufacturing Practices.

    Certified color additives are known as dyes or lakes. Dyes are water-soluble and can be used in beverages, dry mixes, baked goods, confections, dairy products, pet foods, and other products. Lakes are insoluble in water and are more stable than dyes. They are preferred in foods containing fats and oils or those not having too much moisture like tablets, cake mixes, candies, and chewing gums.

    WHY USE COLOR ADDITIVES?

    Though there is a growing realization that the color additives should be used to the minimum, the fact is that the food does not even look presentable at times without it and appears inedible. Colors are used to bring a variation and maintain the natural appeal of the preserved food. Other uses include:
    • To preserve the color loss due to exposure environmental extremes.
    • To correct natural variations in color.
    • To enhance colors that occur naturally.
    • To provide a colorful identity to foods.
    • To protect flavors and vitamins that may be affected by sunlight during storage.

    NATURAL FOOD COLORS

    Natural food colors refer to the dyes obtained from vegetables, animals or minerals, capable of coloring food, drugs or cosmetics. The name 'natural food colors' stands correct as all these natural food colors are obtained using only naturally available products. Usually they are extracted from natural things like seeds, fruits, vegetables, leaves, insects, algae, etc.

    Another very important characteristic of the natural food colors is that they are safe to use as food additives. Since they are natural derivatives, they are free of any harmful side effects. They might be harmful to those who suffer from certain allergies and intolerances. But such allergies are usually individual problems and do not generalize. Natural food colors are popularly food additives that can be found in everyday consumption products.

    As per FDA color pigments having a natural origin are exempt from certification. It does not carry any categorization as natural or synthetic. The reason is that the source may be natural but it may or may not be natural to the food it is added to. There are 26 colors permitted to be used in food and 28 to be used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. A few commonly used natural colors are Annatto (Seed), Turmeric, Beet Juice (Root), Red Cabbage (Vegetable), Spinach (Leaf) and Caramel. All these colors are obtained from some or the other natural products. Easy availability of these food dyes is also one of the reasons for their popularity. But the driving reason behind the growing demand of of natural food colors is the concern that revolves around the synthetic food colors like tartrazine .

    Also known as organic food colors, these natural food additives are made available to the people by the food industry. Natural food colors are being obtained, refined and then added to the edible substances. For use at home, purified forms of natural food colors and dyes are being available in packaged form. They are also easy to prepare at home. A number of natural food dyes can be easily prepared at home. For example, Saffron and dark yellow color can be prepared easily by boiling Saffron in water for around ten minutes. Red color can be extracted from Carrot. Deep Red from Beet Root, so and so forth. Asian spices like Turmeric and Saffron have been traditionally used in households for cooking everyday meals. They lend an appeasing color to the food.

    Natural food colors suppliers and the natural food additives suppliers from India are making some Indian spices available all across the world. Specially the ones that are found and processed exclusively in India, or whose premium variants are found here. Check out the list of natural food colors, identified as the natural food colors and dyes as per the FDA.

    ANNATTO COLOR

    Annatto is a natural food colorant that has been used since the ancient times. The color represented fire, sun and blood in early American Indian civilizations. The color was used for food, dying clothes, and coloring the body during ceremonies. Annatto is yellow, natural food colorant obtained from the seeds of the Bixa Orella tree. The pigments that produce this yellow to orange color range are the carotenoids, bixin and norbixin. The concentration of the color is expressed as a percentage of these compounds and the content varies with the extraction method. pH, emulsifiers and overall solubility affect the hue. Oil soluble Annatto has a brighter hue. The use of annatto color is not restricted to any one kind of use. From lipsticks to beauty creams, from cheese to ice creams and from textiles back to beauty products. The uses of annatto color can be found is almost every walk of life.

    ANNATTO EXTRACT

    Annatto extract can be found in many forms. It may be a powder, paste, oil or as a chunk. Apart from this the annatto seeds can also be used in food for culinary enhancements and flavoring. The procedure to make any of them is a little time taking as well as tedious.

    If annatto seeds are being used as it is, it is not really tough. The seeds have a coating of an oily paste that contains bixin. Bixin is a yellow orange carotenoid. It is extracted using aqueous alkaline solution and vegetable oil solvent. Vegetable oil solvent gives oil soluble bixin, Alkaline solution gives water soluble norbixin and Propyline Glycol yields a combination.

    For Annatto Powder form, annatto seeds need to be dried and crushed to extract the powder. Deriving the paste form needs addition of a water, vinegar and other herbs too at times.

    Annatto oil is available in flavored and unflavored form. It is basically reddish orange colored oil which needs putting a little bit of edible oil in annatto seeds. It is used for cooking in a number of cuisines, but primarily in South America, annatto oil is quite popular.

    • Annatto is also known to treat fever, dysentery, kidney diseases, etc.
    ANTHOCYANINS

    Anthocyanins are one of the most abundant natural pigments available. Anthocyanins are the vacuolar pigments found in almost every part of higher plants. The word "anthocyanin" is derived from two Greek words, anthos (flower) and kyanos (blue). There are six types of anthocyanins all exhibiting different stability profile based on their structure, supporting compounds, process and chemicals used for extraction and food processing.

    anthocyanins color source


    Anthocyanin pigments change their color with the change in the pH. So based on the pH, anthocyanins can be red, blue or purple. Because of this property of changing anthocyanin color, this pigment is also used as a pH indicator. Anthocyanin pigments change from blue in bases and red from acids.

    Anthocyanin pigments are odorless and flavorless. You can find anthocyanin pigments in every part of the higher plants like stems, roots, leaves, fruits and flowers. As of 2006 more than 550 anthocyanins had been discovered.

    Anthocyanin pigments are responsible for the red, purple, and blue colors of many fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, and flowers. These pigments undergo reversible structural transformations with a change in pH manifested by strikingly different absorbance spectra. Anthocyanins being natural colorant appear in the exempt from certification in the FDA list but permits restricted use. They are not used in drugs and cosmetics. They are used in beverages, fruit fillings, snacks, dairy products and confectionery.

    ANTHOCYANIN AS A FOOD ADDITIVE

    Natural anthocyanin pigments act as a secondary metabolites and anthocyanins are food additives with e number 163. All anthocyanins have great antioxidant properties in vitro but scientists are not sure whether this antioxidant property is conserved after consuming the plant carrying it or not. Types of Anthocyanins include sugar-free anthocyanidin aglycones and anthocyanin glycosides.

    SOURCES & USES OF ANTHOCYANINS

    Berries are the rich source of anthocyanin color and natural anthocyanin pigments. Also you can get it from grapes, black carrots and other fruits and vegetables.

    CARAMEL

    burnt sugar food coloring


    Caramel Color is brown to dark brown in appearance and used in many breads, desserts, puddings, cakes and industrial products to make them more tasty and appealing. It is a water soluble color and made by heating the carbohydrates through the process of caramelization. Caramel color has the bit bitter taste of burnt sugar. Caramel food coloring agent is used as ingredients in many recipes.

    You will find caramel coloring in almost every kind of packed and industrial food. It is also one of the oldest forms of colors used by mankind for coloring the food. Like caramel color is found in custards, cough drops, chocolates, cookies, brandy, rum, pickles, sauces and many more food items, drinks and industrial products.

    CARAMEL FOOD COLORING PROPERTIES
    • Color: Golden Brown to Dark Brown
    • Source: Burnt sugar and other carbohydrates.
    • Solubility: Water
    • Stability: 3/4 of the caramel contains negative charge. Acts as an emulsifier.
    • Application: Baked goods, poultry, milk, canned meats, syrups and soups.
    Caramel Color can produce synthetic color ranging from light brown to almost black and this color strength is called its tinctorial power (the absorbency at 560 nanometers measured by spectrophotometer). The color tone, as per the hue index, measures the red characteristics of the color. The higher the strength, the lower the hue index. Some caramel colors are termed "double strength." This varies with the color range.

    Caramel color is a colloid. The specific gravity indicates the solids content and the strength of the color. Being colloid, most of the caramel color carry a positive or negative ionic charge. Negatively charged product uses sulfite in its manufacturing. The ionic charge of the caramel coloring agent determines what caramel color should be used in what product. This allows manufacturers to use negative colloidal caramel in acidic soft drinks, and positive in beers and soy sauces. Caramel color is an emulsifying agent as well. In soft drinks, it helps keep the flavor oils suspended in the solution.

    CARAMEL COLOR CLASSIFICATION

    According to the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives there are basically four classes of Caramel color. Each caramel coloring classification has its own E Number and INS number.
    • Class I is Plain Caramel Color and has e number E150a.
    • Class II is Caustic Sulfite Process Caramel Color and has e number E150b.
    • Class III is Ammonia Process Caramel Color and has e number E150c.
    • Class IV is Sulfite Ammonia Process Caramel Color and has e number E150d.
    CARAMEL COLOR PREPARATION

    Caramel color is one of the most widely used colorants in foods. It is also called the color of burnt sugar. It is made by heating food grade carbohydrates, generally a high dextrose-containing starch hydrolysate or corn syrup. Acids such as acetic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, or phosphoric acid may be used to break the bonds between sugars before the sugars are raised to a higher temperature for caramelization. Heat is carefully controlled during the process.
