A pioneering approach to E171/E172
The values of the Manufacture and the commitment it has to its customers have led to significant efforts to remove E171 and E172 in particular, and artificial colours in general from its products.
In keeping with this stance, all the Manufacture’s products have been free from azo colourants since 2010.
The CLUIZEL Manufacture is proud to strengthen its ongoing commitment to “Nobles Ingredients” and has been involved for some years in an important research and development project that aims to develop alternatives to these controversial ingredients.
The CLUIZEL Manufacture has therefore chosen to replace these controversial substances with two different types of ingredients:
These are found in nature. Curcumin, carotene and beetroot red are widely used by the Manufacture. These ingredients are indicated on the packaging under “colourants for decorations”.
Rather than being additives, these are natural substances used in small amounts to colour foodstuffs. Carrots, radishes, blackcurrants, lemons and spirulina are widely used by the Manufacture. These ingredients are indicated on the packaging under “ingredients for colouring”.
