Replacing Artificial Colours and Flavours in Food Manufacturing

Kanegrade has recognised that consumers are making critical choices in going towards natural ingredients and clean labels in the food and drink they consume.
New legislation is being rolled out by governments around the World (notably in the EU, ME and Russia) to stymie the use of artificial colours and flavours due to the adverse effects they can have on people’s health.

Technical implementation advice

Natural colours are a healthier substitute to artificial colours and one of Kanegrade’s specialities is to work with you to provide technical implementation advice on replacing artificial colours in your production and work with you to develop and supply natural alternatives. We may suggest using natural extracts with no E numbers (i.e. extracts from vegetable origin & vegetable blends) for finished products with even cleaner labels.

Choice of flavours

Another one of our core competencies are flavours which are developed in our flavour division. Kanegrade takes great pride in the quality and choice of flavours that we are able to offer our customers and have developed an exciting and extensive range.
