Mascot's Type - I Caramel Colours are produced through the controlled heating of carbohydrate sources - such as corn, wheat, and sugar - to produce colour bodies. No ammonium or sulfite compounds are allowed in its production, resulting in a Caramel Colour that carries a neutral to slightly negative ionic charge.
Mascot's Type I Caramel Colour is a Spirit soluble Caramel used by the Spirit Industry to colour blended Whisky, Rum, Brandy and other alcoholic beverages. It has a medium coloring power but exhibits good sunlight stability. Other terms used for Type I Caramels are Plain Caramel and Spirit Caramel.
