D.D. Williamson & Co.’s DDW Caramel 624 contributes coffee flavor notes in coffee drinks. If the customer's purpose is flavor, then the beverage processor may simply label it "Caramel" on the ingredient statement.
Considering tea color? Class One, or "Plain" caramel color is the most natural of the four classes. DDW offers Caramel Color 520, its darkest Class One, with high hue /redness to strengthen the reddish-brown color of cold tea drinks.
