Flavourings, Natural Colours & Fruit Powders for Confectionery

As well as offering a full-range of flavourings suitable for confectionery, Kanegrade also offers natural colours which will be stable in the process, ensuring the visual impact is retained in the final product. How a product looks forms our first impression on the shelf, and studies have proven good colouring such as vibrant reds, striking greens and calming blues also improve the taste via colour-taste synaesthesia.

Kanegrade also offers fruit powders, which have gained popularity in confectionery manufacturing for their ability to impart subtle but authentic fruit flavours while also enhancing the nutritional profile of the sweets. They can be used an be used as a dusting or in a sherbet type mix and although weaker than an equivalent aroma of a flavour powder, they provide a natural alternative ingredient.
